We should not live forever because we would crowd our environment and it would be very costly. First of all, living forever would decrease space and keep us from our number one necessity, water. Immortality sounds like a dream come true until you think of all the problems it comes along with. Think about it, more people means more space, and we’d have to give up certain farming areas. That alone, would affect the world dramatically because it would decrease the amount of crops planted and sold each year.
INTRODUCTION Language is not only a means of communication used every day to express our selves, but is also an identity of our cultures, our lifestyles and communities. Coming to what an endangered language is, the language at risk of falling out of use due to various reasons. Loss of a language is a loss of both the identity and the culture of that community. Language loss occurs when the language has no more native speakers and becomes a dead language. And if no one speaks the language at all, it eventually becomes extinct.
Immigrants provide this country with an immeasurable number of benefits, and limiting immigration will only leave the United States at a disadvantage to other countries. Immigration laws have also been very controversial about their morality and their actions can outrageously impact families lives forever. The future of immigration laws is unknown, but prohibiting immigration is not the answer the United States needs. Immigrants have been moving into the US for hundreds of
Otherwise: . . . the flattening of the world is going to be hugely disruptive to both traditional and developed societies. The weak will fall further behind faster.
These people have to continue their lives elsewhere as mandatory or optional from where their ancestors were born. They encounter with a range of serious problems in the new place. One of them is that clashing with new place, people and culture. Also, this clash is the source of the problem of the sense of belonging. Therefore, while assimilation is imposed on the immigrants, some negative results that are created by assimilation should not be ignored.
The rate of changes varies, but whether the changes are faster or slower, they build up until the ‘mother tongue’ becomes arbitrarily distant and different. After a thousand years, the original and new languages will not be mutually intelligible. After ten thousand years, the relationship will be essentially indistinguishable from chance relationships between historically unrelated languages. In the modern world, language change is often socially
By writing this letter, I wish to address my opinion to the views raised in your article in Daily Mail concerning the irrelevance of learning a foreign language when English seems to be the universal language. I deeply disagree with the content of the material as it struck me as a disheartening approach towards the global community we live in today. In an era of great globalization, your arguments stating that learning a foreign language is a waste of time, is profoundly alarming. Over the past couple of decades, mostly all countries in the world have become increasingly interdependent. As boundaries between countries are being dissolved, learning a foreign language is becoming more imperative than ever before.
Every year, many are lost or slowly going extinct. In an increasingly interconnected world, many are trading their traditional languages for more popular languages like English, Spanish or Chinese (Infoplease.com). One reason for this change is because these languages are more widely used globally. Native speakers of tribal languages end up losing an important part of their culture when they give up a language. Federico Frellini once said “A different language is a different vision of life”.
1.1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND The increasing of urbanization, the development of technology and changing the way of living or people’s lifestyle are different from the past make natural resources such as forest and wildlife rapidly decreased and cause environmental issues such as flood, drought, air pollution, wastewater, biodiversity loss, wildlife extinction, etc. As the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment report (2005) announced human activities caused some 10-30 % of the mammal, bird and amphibian species threatened with extinction which is a significant and enormously irreversible loss in diversity of life on Earth. As for Thailand, 6 species of wildlife are already extinct and about 116 species are classified to be threatening from the International Union for Conservation of Nature
All these factors greatly affect the endangerment of Pangasinan as a statutory language in the province. Also in their article entitled Pangasinan- An Endangered language? A Retrospect and Prospect, Anderson and Anderson admitted that although Pangasinan is spoken by at least a million, it is still prone to endangerment because of increasing evidence of attrition, both in its population and in the number of communicative settings in which it is used. On the other side, Anderson and Anderson (2007) believed that a language can survive, they
