Saving Turkey's Laz language

Turkish scholars try to revive the Laz language but attempts are proving difficult.

    In Turkey, Laz is an ancient tongue that bears no resemblance to any other language in the region.

    Ever since scholars rediscovered the language in the 1980s, there has been a determined effort to save it.

    But as Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught reports, success is far from guaranteed.
