In international contexts, Intangible heritage is divided into five groups. First one is the oral traditions
and expressions, including language. And also the important function of language is known
as a vehicle for intangible heritage. Recognizing language in the field of intangible heritage, some
languages and linguistic patterns such as the skill of storytelling, minstrelsy and songs are listed
in the world intangible cultural heritage list, and on the other hand, many endangered linguistic
heritages are under consideration to be preserved. Though there are sporadic references for
damages to the language, the vacancy of a comprehensive pathology for the threats to linguistic
heritage is felt.
For scientific pathology of linguistic heritage, it is required to 1-compute its representations, 2-
analyze its function, and 3-extract its influencing components in cultural heritage.
In this paper, living languages, accents, dialects, proverbs, narratives, idioms and names are classified
as different representations of linguistic heritage. Then, two general functions of linguistic
heritage namely cultural transmission and human communication are discussed. According to
this classification and analyses, the damages to linguistic heritage are extracted through descriptive-
survey analysis, and finally, some suggestions are delivered for continuation of linguistic
heritage as one of the important sections of intangible cultural heritage.
