Parole in via d'estinzione: Coguaro e Macchina da scrivere

Secondo lo Zingarelli 2011, 2.900 parole rischiano di scomparire: ginepraio, aulico, scherno, uopo, zelo. Perchè statisticamente sono sempre meno usate e il minor utilizzo rappresenta un allarme per la loro possibile estinzione ... come fossero un panda.

L'estinzione di un animale non è una perdita solo per la natura ma anche per la lingua. Se un animale scompare anche la parola che lo definisce rischia di scomparire perchè sarà sempre meno usata e col tempo potrebbe finire nel dimenticatoio del nostro vocabolario.

Come nel caso del coguaro, il puma dell'est degli Stati Uniti, dichiarato ufficialmente estinto in dal dipartimento americano poche settimane fa. Ma è un fenomeno che investe non solo il mondo degli animali. Come nel caso della typewriter, la macchina da scrivere: l'ultima fabbrica che le produceva si trovava in India ed ha appena chiuso per mancanza di ordini.
