Subject: Featured Article at Wikipedia


The featured article for 30 Jan 2005 at the Wikipedia is about the Laal
 language of Chad.  The front page is at:
 
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
 
 It mentions that the language is unclassified and endangered.  The full article
 is at:
 
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laal_language
 
 It includes a brief sketch of the phonology and grammar.
 
 While other feature articles at Wikipedia have been about language, I
 believe this is the first time an endangered language was the topic (not
 counting Latin!).
