Introduction This chapter originated as a “general remarks” response to the individual papers presented at the conference on endangered languages held in Kyoto at the end of 2000; some of these papers appear in revised form in the present volume.

Obvious criteria are (1) degree of endangerment of a given language (from the Bad Godesberg meeting in 2000, February, we have been working on a scale of such degrees—cf. g. a dialect of a well-documented language or member of a well-attested branch of a family rated lower than a relative isolate, or language of a relatively unusual type); and one other type of criterion, namely (4) degree of accessibility, which could eliminate some languages ranking very high by the above criteria but which are situated in countries or districts where access or contact is not permitted or is too dangerous, threatening even the life of the linguist and/or speakers, often even in areas which are not war-torn.

Changes in the initial consonant of a word depending on what precedes it or what syntactic position it finds itself in. Thus the word “father” is tad in isolation, but voices its initial consonant (“soft mutation”) in dy dad “your father” (and would also do so as direct object of a finite verb, whether or not adjacent to that verb), fricativizes it (“spirant mutation”) in ei thad “her father”, and nasalizes it (“nasal mutation”) in fy nhad “my father”. There are dialect differences within traditional Welsh as to the details of the mutations, and some dialects have lost the so-called spirant mutation, but all varieties of traditional Welsh have systematic use of mutations.
