First, the paper notes that language does not take place in a vacuum and says much about the society that used it, and the study of language contributes to an anthropological understanding of the development of the society.

From the Paper:

"Several projects today are in the process of recording the vocabulary and syntax of languages that may be disappearing from the lack of a population that speaks the language and conveys it to a new generation. The preservation of languages is important for a number of reasons, including reasons that may not be evident as yet. First, language does not take place in a vacuum and says much about the society that used it, and the study of language contributes to an anthropological understanding of the development of the society. Second, and more than this, the study of the language of one society contributes to an understanding of neighboring societies and how they were influenced by one another."
