Unesco prediction on the extinction of igbo language in 2025: Analyzing societal violence and new transformative strategies

Ani Kelechi Johnmary

The world is increasingly recording high cases of endangered languages. Endangered language is a language that is at risk of falling out of use as its speakers die out or shift to speaking another language. Igbo language is falling out of the communication choice of many Igbo people.

The paper shows how the gradually society exhibits social violence against their language at home, school, church, as by the government and through their dialect as well as other multidimensional ways. It well calls for the factoring and promotion of Igbo language based NGOs, public service broadcasting and transformative government policy in other to attain sustainable Igbo language transformation.
