Vanishing Languages – three profiles

Read Russ Rymer’s essays with a photograph by Lynn Johnson on Tuvan (tyv), Aka (or Hruso (hru)) and Seri (sei) at Vanishing Languages on the National Geographic website.

Among the highlights are Tuvan khöömei (throat singing), an Akan shaman’s sachet, and disdain for unshared wealth. Also, Seri is a language isolate.
