"There is no provision for adult literacy, the range of dictionaries and adult learning materials is inadequate, there is a chronic shortage of trained editors and opportunities for adult learning are severely restricted.

Experts warn against restricting threatened languages to arenas where they are maintained as second languages by academic elite groups, who can be called on for tokenistic displays of "heritage and culture".
