 sci.lang FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Linguistics can often supply facts which help people arrive at a recommendation or value judgement, but the recommendation or value judgement is not part of linguistic science itself.
Recently linguists such as Joseph Greenberg and Vitalij Shevoroshkin have attracted attention both in linguistic circles and in the popular press with claims of larger genetic units, such as Nostratic (comprising Indo-European, Uralic, Altaic, Dravidian, and Afroasiatic) or Amerind (to include all the languages of the New World except Na-Dene and Eskimo-Aleut).
Most linguists regard these hypotheses as having a grossly insufficient empirical foundation, and argue that comparisons at that depth are not possible using available methods of historical linguistics.

 Chinese spoken language - Learn Chinese - Chinese
When forced to conceptualize these variations in terms of language and dialect common in the West, most Chinese do not think of these variations as separate languages because they share a common written standard and literary and cultural tradition, and perhaps just as importantly, is the basis for a single political identity.
However, the linguistic distance between different Chinese dialects is often much greater than forms of speech which in other parts of the world would unquestionably be considered distinct languages.
Linguists divide the variations in spoken Chinese language into seven to ten groups.

 IZRE'EL: Report - Semitic Linguistic: The State of the Art at the Turn of the Twenty-First Century
For the year 2000, the editorial board of IOS have planned an ambitious project, and volume 20 of this annual will be devoted to the state of the art of Semitic linguistics at the turn of the 21st century.
Semitic linguistics has always been associated with philology rather than with linguistics, with the deciphering of dead languages rather than with the study of modern living languages, and with diachronic and comparative linguistics rather than with synchronic analyses of languages.
Thus, the symposium discussed research in ancient languages and comparative issues, different schools in the study of Semitic languages, various domains within the study of linguistic structure, the study of geographical linguistics, the relationship between linguistic study and other human capacities and the relationship of linguistic study to machines.

Modern linguistic studies (by Robert L. Cheng and Chin-An Li, for example) estimate that most (75 % to 90 %) Taiwanese words have cognates in other Chinese languages.

 languagehat.com: GAN: WHODUNNIT?
In Taiwan, 'gan' is usually written as 幹;, the-character-that-can-get-you-banned-from-the-airwaves.
I'm pretty weak on the meanings of "gan", but "this kind of situation is hard to fuck" and "After ten years fucking with this intractible problem, he finally quit" and perhaps even "At the end of ten years his marriage had become unfuckable" all sound approximately right.
There's no mystery as to why gan is translated this way, it is simply because most Chinese rely on electronic tranlating gizmos to do their Chinese-English work.

 What is Linguistics?
A number of linguists argue that Japanese is ALTAIC; others, that it is most closely related to AUSTRONESIAN, or that it represents a mixture of AUSTRONESIAN and ALTAIC elements.
When linguists say that languages are related, they're not just remarking on their surface similarity; they're making a technical statement or claim about their history-- namely, that they can be regularly derived from a common parent language.
Because of such problems, some linguists reject the mutual intelligibility criterion; but they do not propose to return to arguments on political and cultural grounds.

 Amazon.co.uk: Language Death (Canto): Books: David Crystal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The rapid endangerment and death of many minority languages across the world is a matter of widespread concern, not only among linguists and anthropologists but among all concerned with issues of cultural identity in an increasingly globalized culture.
It is a relief to read something on this subject which, for once, is more than elegantly expressed hand wringing, and the author's characteristically readable argument which, although impassioned, sticks to language issues and does not meander, should annoy the complacent and excite the progressive.
In fact, the whole book is so well expressed I suggest it is of interest far beyond linguistics as a lesson in how to structure an argument.
