Regional languages die out or are they alive ?

The regional languages may be extinct within a few decades . At least now if nothing is done to preserve them . At a conference in Hoogeveen last week was this statement addressed.

There are also fewer and fewer writers who hold a regional language alive. This year the harvest was of Drenthe , Groningen and the Stellingwerven very thin, only a few collections of poetry and ten books. One of the writers was Ferdinand de Jong . He still writes his books in Frisian and recently released his fourth book entitled " Sa " . The question is , can a regional language exist or keep alive when so little is produced?
