	Bob O'Hara's reference to "The Death of Languages" by David L. Wheeler
in the 20 April 1994 issue of the _Chronicle of Higher Education_ reminded me
of a book on this subject that I enjoyed very much. Here's the reference:

DORIAN, NANCY C., ED. (1989)
	Investigating Obsolescence: Studies in Language Contraction and Death.
Cambridge University Press.
