* please be aware that all of these  may be out of date when it comes to the number of languages in the world. They still say there are 7000 languages of in the world - and that a language dies every fortnight.... this hasn't been changed for some years. We are advised that a better estimate is that there are 'more than 6000' languages. These sites tend to repeat what the others say, 

so inaccuracies may not be easy to pinpoint.
