Language has evolved with humanity since the dawn of our time here on Earth, shaping our relationships, communities, and cultures. Through language we are able to share stories of love and connect with those around us. Linguist Alexandra Aikhenvald traverses the world from the swamplands of Papua New Guinea to universities across North America to explore the importance of language, how it ties us to our humanity, and what we lose when a language dies.

Reading room discussion: Imagine that the language you speak does not exist in 100 years – what would be lost with its disappearance?
