閱讀下文回答 37~41 題 We are all aware of the damage that modern industry can cause to the world’s ecology, but few people are aware of the 37 widely spoken languages have on other languages and ways of life. English has spread all over the world. Chinese, Spanish, Russian, and Hindi have become powerful languages as well. As these languages become more powerful, their use as tools of business and culture increases. As this happens, hundreds of languages that are spoken by a few die out all over the world. Scholars believe there are around 6,000 languages around the world, but more than half of them could 38 within the next 100 years. Aore is the language native to Vanuatu, located in the Pacific Ocean. Like Catawba before Red Thunder Cloud’s death, it is spoken by that island’s only remaining native inhabitant; so it, too, will soon be gone. A large number of Ethiopian languages are used by 39 numbers of people. Two speakers of the Ethiopian language Gafat were fine until a researcher took them out of their native jungle, at which point they caught a cold and died. In New Guinea, more than 100 languages could die out. When a plant, insect, or animal species dies, it is easy to understand what has been lost. 40 , language is only a product of the mind. To be the last remaining speaker of a language must be a peculiarly lonely destiny, almost as strange and terrible as being the last surviving member of a dying species. When a language vanishes, we lose the possibility of a 41 way of seeing and describing the world.

[C] __19__ cellist Yo-Yo Ma played “The Cellist of Sarajevo” at the International Cello Festival in Manchester, England, in 1994. Pianist Paul Sullivan, who was present, describes it thus: “When he had finished, Yo-Yo Ma remained __20__ over his cello. His bow still rested on the strings. No one in the hall moved, not a sound was made for a long, long time. It was as though we had just witnessed that horrifying massacre ourselves. Finally still in silence, Yo-Yo slowly straightened in his chair, looked out across the audience, and stretched out his hand toward us. All eyes followed as he __21__ someone to come to the stage, and an indescribable electric shock __22__ us as we realized who it was: Vedran Smailovic—the cellist of Sarajevo himself! He rose from his seat and walked down the aisle as Yo-Yo came off the stage and headed up the aisle to meet him. With arms flung wide, they met each other in a passionate __23__ just inches from my seat.” “The drama was unbelievable, as everyone in the hall __24__ a chaotic emotional frenzy: clapping, weeping, shouting, and cheering. It was deafening, __25__, and a tidal wave of emotion. And in the centre of the hall stood these two men, hugging and crying freely. Yo-Yo Ma, the elegant prince of classical music, was __26__ in appearance and performance. And Vedran Smailovic, who had just escaped from Sarajevo, dressed in a stained and __27__ leather motorcycle suit with fringe on the arms. His wild long hair and huge mustache framed a face that looked old beyond his years, creased with pain and __28__ with so many tears.”
