Khoibu language absent from UNESCO list

UNESCO misfires again : Khoibu dialect not on endangered list

The Sangai Express alleges that UNESCO have erroneously left Khoibu, spoken in Manipur, off their list of endangered languages.

According to the article, there are 3000 Khoibus.

The number of speakers of a language does not necessarily correspond to its level of endangerment.
