Stuff on language policy, language contact and language shifts to follow. For now see hrelp.org for one rather gloomy but prevalent set of attitudes (the ‘language death’ model), and ethnologue.com for info on specific languages. For the old-school philological grounding, Wikipedia’s articles on historical and comparative linguistics, language contact and language families are a decent start.
