Abstract
The study of endangered languages can reveal interesting informa- tion about how languages adapt to changes in the environment of their speakers and particularly to changes in their culture. This article introduces two under- studied Cameroonian languages at different stages of endangerment: Wawa (endangered) and Njanga (moribund). Njanga has been replaced by a related dialect (Sundani) and Wawa is threatened by the dominant Fulfulde language and is undergoing gradual and unexpected changes in reaction to the threat. A language ecology perspective is employed to examine data on numerals, color terms, and days of the week.
