The speaker talked about Language death. According to the lecture he mentioned some specific mindset of people and wants to change this mindset and Want people to think about language more explicitly. He talked about most people are fascinated by some topics as where words come from, they are certainly prepared to play Scrabble and a host of other language games ad infinitum; and language games are often found on radio and television, too – but the willingness to focus that interest on general issues, a preparedness to take on board the emotion and drama inherent in a situation of language endangerment, is not something that happens much.
