    Just a hypothesis though. Belarusian has a larger population than Sorbian (which in turn is split in two languages to boot), that's probably the true reason.
    Number of speakers is a factor, but not defining one. Similarity is the key i think. While Sorbian is surrounded by German which is very different, Belarussian been assimilated by Polish and Russian which are very close. And in very close languages assimilation not always works. You can perfectly speak belarussian to a russian speaker, so pressure to learn is not so big.

    Lusatia should have been made independent after WW2.
