Some minority languages are on the brink of extinction because of very few people using them. Although people say that governments should protect this languages by money from national budget, I completely disagree with this idea, but I think this have some advantages. This essay will be discussed both of views before a reasoned conclusion is drawn.
On the one hand, protecting languages is essential for each country. Firstly, many historical documentaries are recorded by using minority languages. For example, in Iceland, it has a huge collection of North Europe mythology stories, which are written by Runes signs. If local native languages was lost, scientists could not discover and analyze ancient civilizations as a result. Minority languages also play an importance part in local culture and identity, uniting us a community. Thus, when a language is lost, a part of the community and culture also disappears. This must be an enormous loss for each region, some countries are affected far more than others by disappearance of a language.
On the other hand, the government should pour public money to enhance the standard living especially developing countries. For instance, some countries in the Africa, numerous citizens live under the line of poverty, they have not enough food to consume every day. Consequently, if governments spend money to focus on protecting local native tongues, citizens may be face with death. Moreover, healthcare systems need to improve in recent. For example, vaccines like covax-19 are ultimately invention during Coronavirus pandemic, which allows us to prevent the infection and save thousands of people’s lives.
In conclusion, even though minority languages should be conserved due to the significance of the languages towards the culture of a nation and its potentials to find out the historical context of ancestors, I believe that such funding should be allotted to other more important sectors such as healthcare and the quality of life. It is recommended that the government should allocate money from national finance to aspects, such as education or social welfare, that develop countries, if it does not conduct, this might cause the chaos in society
