Languages of the World


According to some studies, in 2003 there were 6,809 spoken languages in the world. However, 90% of these were spoken by less than 100,000 people and 357 languages had less than 50 speakers! For example, the Cambap language which is spoken in Central Cameroon, had only 30 speakers and the Leco language, spoken in the Bolivian Andes, had about 20 speakers. In fact, a total of 46 languages had just a single speaker remaining. Between 150 and 200 of the languages were spoken by more than one million people.
