This fuels my desire to get my doctorate in linguistics; it's frustrating to think that half of the world's languages are endangered.

I'm fascinated with linguistics, even though I know a zillionth of anything about the subject. The history, the migration, the evolution yadda, it's all really intriguing.

And I guess there's a whole school of thought that says languages die out like species, and it's a part of the way the world works, but still. The idea that Irish might not exist on the planet someday is awful.

Looking very forward to watching this later! I've tried for years to improve my Irish; it's such a fascinating and beautiful language (but also hard). I do find it surprising that, according to the list of music credits in the wiki, none of the music he's decided to use is Irish! Dude, you come from one of the most music-rich places on the planet....

In order for me to improve my Irish, I would have to actually learn a little first. I know words like "and" and "heart", but that's about it. I want to learn like a zillion languages. I already speak a little Spanish, and I'll be taking French when I go back to school (for practical travel-nurse-y purposes and stuff). So many languages, so little time.
