Europe mapped by language

Posted by Audrey Dubois-Boutet on November 17, 2008

We recently discovered this map of Europe, color coded by language spoken, which we think is fascinating. Language diversity is alive and well in Europe; as you can see, there are more European languages than European countries! The languages are grouped by language family--not all European languages are related to each other! Some are part of several language groups distinct from Indo-European (the most common European language family).
