Greece’s disappearing whistled language

The BBC on Greece’s disappearing whistled language, “sfyria”.  “Today there are as many as 70 other whistled languages in the world, and they all exist in remote mountain villages like Antia”.  “According to the Unesco Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger, no other language in Europe – whistled or not – has fewer living speakers than sfyria”.
