Not to be confused with Linguistic Conservatism.
Linguistic Preservationism is a language ideology which while being culturally right can also be seen as inclusive.
It's basically Linguistic Conservatism taken to the extreme. It tries to preserve all languages that are being currently spoken. Another difference to Linguistic Conservatism is that the arguments aren't inherently based on nationalism and traditionalism.
This ideology wants to preserve as many languages as possible.
There are ~6700 languages and 40% are teetering on the brink of extinction and it argues that when a language dies, we loose a culture, a work of art and a unique way to perceive the world. There are also factions mostly consisting of scientist that support this ideology because when a language dies it's way harder and sometimes impossible to study the language and the culture associated with it.
There are many institutions who try to help preserving languages or document endangered languages like UNESCO, Center for the Protection of Language Resources of China and Europe's Endangered Languages Documentation Programm.
