  List of endangered languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A list of endangered languages (with fewer than 1000 speakers or in rapid decline).
In order to judge if a language is endangered, the number of speakers is less important than the age distribution; there may be 500,000 speakers of the Breton over 50 years of age, but fewer than 2,000 under 25 years of age - it is likely Breton will die out in the next half-century.
There are languages in Indonesia reported to be in a similar situation with as many as two million native speakers alive now, but all of advancing age, with practically no transmission to the young.

The differences between these languages are huge; not only because of differences in style and taste of their creators, but also because every creator inevitably has his own ideas about what a North Slavic language would look like.
Vozgian is the easternmost of all North Slavic languages.
It left its mark in the phonological development of the language (an example of which is vowel harmony, resulting in front vowels like ö and ü), but also in its grammar: where the other Slavic languages have seven cases at most, Vozgian has thirteen of them as a result of the postfixation of prepositions.
