Why the Philippine Negrito Languages are Endangered

Why the Philippine Negrito Languages are Endangered

(p.110) 6 Why the Philippine Negrito Languages are Endangered
Endangered Languages of Austronesia

Thomas N. Headland

Oxford University Press

This chapter explains why the thirty-plus Negrito languages in the Philippines are endangered, and what the projected future is for these numerically tiny post-foraging societies in the 21st century. The argument is supported by a review of the population sizes, interethnic human rights problems, and the environmental destruction of the rainforests of these marginalized peoples.

Keywords:   Philippines, Negrito languages, interethnic human rights, population sizes, marginalized people
