SAN FRANCISCO Cheap David Robinson Jersey , Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- Alaska Native languages are most likely to be extinct or dormant by the end of the 21st century unless action is taken to save them, a new report released by a committee of the state in the most northwestern part of the United States said.
The Anchorage Daily News Sunday quoted the 2018 report of the Alaska Native Language Preservation and Advisory Council as saying that the Alaska Native languages are in a "linguistic emergency."
"If current rates of decline were to continue as they have been since the 1970s, all Alaska Native languages may lose their last fluent speakers by the end of the 21st century," the report said.
The council Cheap Tim Duncan Jersey , established by the state legislature in 2012 to preserve and restore Alaska Native languages, urged Alaska Governor Bill Walker to make a state policy to preserve, promote and develop those languages.
At the time of statehood in 1959, there were 20 indigenous languages spoken within the boundaries of Alaska Cheap Kawhi Leonard Jersey , all of which, in addition to English, were recognized as official languages of the state.
Most of these languages belong to one of two large language families -- Eskimo-Aleut and Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit.
Currently, all of those Native languages have "suffered an ongoing loss in the number of speakers over the past 40 years Wholesale San Antonio Spurs Jerseys ," the council said in its biennial report.
The Tsetsa'ut language lost its last fluent speaker in the early 1930s, and another language, Eyak, lost its last fluent speaker in 2008 Cheap San Antonio Spurs Jerseys , it noted.
The council warned that the number of people who actually speak the languages has falled, though the Alaska Native population has grown since 1980.
While the central Yup'ik and Inupiaq are the two most spoken Alaska Native languages, other languages such as Haida, Tsimshian Wholesale Spurs Jerseys , Han, and Upper Tanana, now have fewer than 10 speakers each in Alaska, said the council.
BEIJING Cheap Spurs Jerseys , Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- China said Wednesday that Cold War thinking would undermine joint efforts to seek a proper resolution for the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and create a division in the international community.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang made the remarks at a routine press briefing when asked to comment on the Vancouver meeting, which calls for maximum pressure on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to force it to end its nuclear and missile programs.
"The 20-nation gathering hosted by the United States and Canada in the name of United Nations Command apparently reflects their Cold War thinking," Lu said.
He reiterated that to convene a meeting where major parties to the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue were not included would not help in the creation of an appropriate resolution on the issue.
Lu said the main channel for handling and resolving the nuclear issue on the peninsula should still be the framework of the six-party talks and the UN Security Council.
"China has always persisted in resolving the peninsula nuke issue through dialogue and consultation," he said Cheap Joffrey Lauvergne Jersey , reaffirming China's position on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
"The crux of the Korean Peninsula nuke issue is the security issue," Lu said. "Only through dialogue can the parties concerned address their legitimate security concerns and find an effective way to peacefully solve the issue."
"Currently, the north and the south of the Korean Peninsula have been resuming dialogues and contact," he said Cheap Pau Gasol Jersey , calling on all parties concerned to value the recent easing in tensions and support efforts of both sides to improve relations.
"It will be counterproductive to increase the DPRK's isolation and the pressure on its government," Lu said.
The meeting, in which China's foreign minister did not participate, came as the DPRK and the Republic of Korea have resumed talks after Pyongyang decided to join the PyeongChang Winter Olympics next month.
