GeekSpeak – Will all languages disappear? Join the discussion Saturday May 30th at 12pm SLT


There are about 7000 languages left on Earth and the number is declining quickly. Will there be only one language in the future?  Will the world be better off with just one because that will mean that we all understand each other better?  Or will we lose more than we gain, when so much poetry, so many jokes and so much of our culture has gone?
Will we need language at all in the future?  Do the Borg need language?
Which of the current languages will survive for 10 years?  Or 50 years?  Or 500? 
When aliens land on Earth what language will we use to greet them?  Will it be a language that is not invented yet?  Maybe an artificial language?

Come and talk about it in GeekSpeak.  In English.  😊 Bring a friend.
IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at the GeekSpeak auditorium at 1pm SLT, if you have ideas for new subjects.
