Boa Senior, the last speaker of the Bo language of the Andaman Islands, just died, after 30 years of being the only speaker left.

Languages are disappearing at an unprecedented rate. Government officials should be doing a lot more to fund the education of minority
languages. Not enough is being done. It's sad to see another one die out. As a promoter of minority languages this news saddens me deeply.

It is sad. Equally sad is that over 3500 languages are in danger of dying off within less than two generations.
