Summary Scientists estimate that of 7,000 languages in the world, half will be gone by the end of this century. THE LINGUISTS joins David Harrison and Gregory Anderson, scientists racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. In the rugged landscapes of Siberia, India , and Bolivia, the linguists’ resolve is tested by the very forces stifling languages: institutionalized racism and violent economic unrest. David and Greg’s journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge, and communities at stake. The first film funded by the National Science Foundation to ever premiere at **Sundance**, THE LINGUISTS went on to win top honors at film festivals around the world. It aired on PBS and in 2010 was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Science and Technology Programming.
