Reviving the lost languages

Professor Zuckermann of Australia is preserving the linguistic diversity of Australia. Australia is said to have had 250 languages during the colonial. However due to its geographical isolation, many are unknown. One of the languages called the Guugu gave the word “Kangaroo”. Unfortunately, there are only 775 people speaking the language. The reason behind the vanishing is that the languages have unique grammatical structures and concepts that are totally irrelevant to each other.
