Like many languages spoken by indigenous people, Ayapaneco is dying. Only two people still speak it — and they won't talk to each other.
Spoken in Mexico for centuries, Ayapeneco is one of 68 surviving indigenous languages in the mostly-Spanish speaking nation. The two speakers are Manuel Segovia (pictured on the right), 75, and Isidro Velazquez, 69, and despite living only 500 metres from each other in the village of Ayapa the two men refuse to communicate.
