On a global scale, a language is lost every two weeks

Awaye! host Daniel Browning, Durag language teacher Joel Davison and journalist Russ Rymer come together to talk about dying languages. Globally, a language is lost every two weeks, and the Australian Human Rights Commission says more than 90 per cent of Australia’s Indigenous languages are critically endangered.
