    Google agus Gaeilge

    Google has kicked off an Endangered Languages Project. This is a site to help preserve languages that are under threat in the modern age. Half of all the world’s languages are described as being “on the verge of extinction.” 

    The site details four levels of language-crisis: “at risk,” “endangered,” “severely endangered,” and “vitality unknown” (uh oh…)

    Here’s how they describe and rank Irish:

    Anyone been on the site?

     

    Is fearr dhá theanga ná ceann amháin…

    Cuireann siad Gaeilge ar a láithreán gréasáin anois: www.duolingo.com

    I visited the site that you mentioned, and Irish is "endangered", they say. Yes, it's sad but true that many of the world’s languages are described as being “on the verge of extinction.” But unfortunately, this is inevitable, especially in our era of globalization. Many people start using foreign, more popular language, cause it has its advantages. I live in Ireland, but, for example, I write my crypto blog in English, because that way I can reach a much larger audience. But that doesn't mean I don't use Irish in everyday communication..
