Patrick Cox and Carol Hills select their top five language-related stories from the past month. Among them: the sad tale of Muammar Gaddafi's translator at the United Nations; the quixotic tale of the real estate mogul who is trying to export Korean Hangul script to Indonesia; India's burgeoning number of official languages; a declaration from UNESCO that a southern Swedish dialect is in fact a language under threat; and a German court's decision to permit Nazi hate speech, so long as it's not in German.
