Top 15 Critically Endangered Languages in India

India boasts of a rich culture with many languages and dialects spoken across the country. At this age, many of these languages are almost extinct as these were not passed down every generation. When there are only a few people who know a language, there are many surveys which come up. A language is threatened with extinction when the speakers of that language become old enough and pass away without passing it on to the next generation. Insidermonkey experts made a list of top 15 critically endangered languages in India.

As per UNESCO, a classification system is followed which categorizes the present status of every language. These can range from being vulnerable to totally extinct. Usually, the languages which are put into the critically endangered category are those where the speakers of the language are the grandparents and who did not pass it on to their children. We have taken information from the UNESCO list which provides information about all the languages in the world in every category. You can also check our list of 10 Endangered Languages in the World.
