Interesting but... Mar 11, 2015

...it would be interesting to see similar maps for other language groups, e.g. Nordic, Latin, Spanish etc. These maps seem to be restricted to English.

I'd quite like that language family tree painted on my wall (well, if I had a big enough wall!)

I particularly liked the tree map (map 1) which sort of implies that English is one of the many Indian languages, a claim many Indians too are increasingly making these days.
