Atong (India) (1582-aot) = Threatened (80 percent certain, based on the evidence available) ("Although Atong is under a lot of pressure from Garo, the language is still learnt by most children in villages where Atong is the dominant language and shows no signs of obsolescence. It is impossible for me to say objectively what the situation of Atong is at the moment. Given the enormous percentage of bilingual speakers and the prestige of Garo, the majority of the Atong language community could simply decide to abandon their language overnight." (pg. 17-18))
