TRUE - I don't check the exact meaning of "marginalised", but I think it probably has the similar meaning about margin which means the empty area on the page of a book.And occasionally equals to sometimes.
NOT GIVEN - According to the text of "and their occasional consideration as uncultured, primitive, or simple dialects", it does have the meaning of simpler, but not all of them. Again, occasional means not all the time.
TRUE - such as supporting separatism, non-integration of these communities.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. NOT GIVEN
('disappear' is not mentioned, it only says 'marginalised', which means 'treated as less important')

2. NOT GIVEN

(there is nothing about how easy they are to learn)

3. TRUE

(considered to be harmful = seen as a threat)

SIMON, PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME. why is the answer to #1 "not given" and not "false"? the question says "disappear", whilst the statement says "marginalised".

Dear Simon,
I understand that "be harmful" = "a threat", but "sometimes".... be harmful # "often"... a threat.
I mean the words "sometimes" and "often" make the answer 3 "false"???
