By the next century, nearly half of the estimated 7,000 languages now spoken in the world could disappear. Nanyang Technological University goes in search of fading languages, uncovering the linguistic and cultural diversity of the Southeast Asian region through inter-disciplinary collaborations amongst linguists, art and media researchers, and indigenous communities.In this month's Sunday Showcase you can wander through interactive displays, storytelling and workshops, and gain insights into rapidly disappearing native tongues that still have much to say.
