Hook: Hook has been verified by provided inline citation
QPQ: None required.

Overall: It's always fun to find resonances between DYK hooks — in this case I'm reviewing this as a QPQ for my own hook about language preservation. Overall, everything checks out; nice work!

The only tweak I'd suggest would be to take out now, as dead is implied to be the present circumstance unless otherwise qualified (if retained, now dead would be better hyphenated). That leaves us with ALT0a: ... that the Brazilian social media page Tupinizando is dedicated to the promotion of Old Tupi, a dead language? If an alt hook is needed, the quote Brazilians speak Tupi all day without knowing it could probably be turned into one. Sdkbtalk 18:22, 28 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
