Fascinating that language diversity (and probably cultural diversity) is so closelylinked to biodiversity.

Languages are very reflective of all cultures, in Japanese the outright word "no" does not exist! It is based on the Japanese culture of saving face. It is based on inflection of how some one wants to hear and respond therefore no "lose of face"

The indigenous people need to keep their languages as a part of their history and identity. S & N
