  1. Paragraph C 
    Explanation: Linguists are also concerned about languages that borrow too much from other languages. For instance, if a language borrows words, vocabulary, and then grammar, it eventually becomes difficult to call the two languages separate.
  2. Paragraph A 
    Explanation: ... there are five regions in the world where languages are disappearing more rapidly. They include Northern Australia, Central South America, North America's upper Pacific coastal zone, Eastern Siberia and Oklahoma and Southwest United States.
  3. Paragraph E 
    Explanation: In New Zealand, Maori communities have come up with nursery schools that are taught by elders and conducted in the Maori language. ... In California, young people have become apprentices to older adult speakers who live in the community in a bind to revive sleeping beauty languages.
  4. Paragraph D 
    Explanation: A language is safe if it has many young speakers and if it has the support of the state where it is spoken.
  5. Paragraph F 
    Explanation: According to David Harrison, assistant professor of linguistics at Swarthmore College, most of the languages that are on verge of extinction have no dictionary, text, or record of the accumulated knowledge and history of the disappearing culture.
  6. Paragraph B 
    Explanation: ... dominance of a given language over indigenous tongues. This often occurs in cases where the dominant language is regarded as more prestigious. When people are convinced that they will earn more respect or a good job if they speak the dominant language, they are bound to dump the minority language.

Answer for IELTS Academic Reading Locating Information Mock Test - Question 3

(Note: The text in italics is from the reading passage and shows the location from where the answer is taken or inferred. The text in the regular font explains the answer in detail.)

  1. Paragraph B
    Explanation: Language revival and language revitalisation are attempts to preserve endangered languages.

  2. Paragraph D
    Explanation: In the earlier days of European contact, Indians were separated from their linguistic kin and resettled hundreds of miles away with individuals from other tribes who couldn't understand each other. Historically, this is the single most effective way to eliminate minority languages (for obvious reasons).

  3. Paragraph A
    Explanation:  A language which has no native speakers (people who grew up speaking the language as a child) is called dead or extinct. A language which has no native speakers in the youngest generation is called moribund. A language which has very few native speakers is called endangered or imperilled.

  4. Paragraph C
    Explanation: In the case of American Indian languages, however, the language drop-off has been artificially induced and precipitous, and just as with the human-caused endangered species crisis, it is worth doing something about it.

  5. Paragraph F
    Explanation: Now that the Amerindian languages of North America are in a precarious situation, simply leaving them alone will not cause their extinction trends to end.

  6. Paragraph E
    Explanation: Existing linguistic communities do not normally lose their languages after losing a war, even after being conquered and colonised, the way immigrant groups do. The usual pattern is bilingualism, which may be stably maintained indefinitely.

  7. Paragraph D
    Explanation: Even as recently as the 50s, Indian children were forcibly removed from non-English-speaking households and sent to boarding schools to be socialised. They were routinely punished there for speaking their languages, and Indian-speaking parents began hiding their languages in the hope of keeping their children in their houses or at least making school life easier for them.
