Circassians in bid to save language

Al Jazeera English, May 14 - Unesco has warned that half of all the languages spoken on the planet will are likely to disappear by the end of the century, and some say we all stand to lose once they are gone.

There are more than 7,000 languages currently spoken in the world - many aren't recorded and don't have a written form.

Their loss could limit our knowledge about history, culture and nature.
