Beside the fact, that more than 50% of the languages spoken in the world may disappear in a couple of years, the transformation of the spoken and written word caused by immigration/globalization is not to be sneezed at. That modification is fundamentally for the following design: As long as you keep the first and last letter of a word on its position you can mix the remaining letters at random without destructing the readability. This example reveals how powerful a language in general is - thus all of them need to be saved.
