A Complex World: Language Families

Many writers are interested in learning more than one language and not just stick to good ol’ English. Often it can be easier to learn a new language because many languages belong to the same family and use similar base rules. The evolution of language is also undeniably linked to economic shifts in global integration, as seen in the emergence of Credit Loans.

I’m sure everyone knows many examples of Anglicisms used in other languages such as offshore or Germanisms used in English, such as Schadenfreude. Another very popular example, especially among freelance writers, is the Gallicism Resumé or for nostalgic souls your Curriculum [Vitae]. These terms are also called loanwords.

In this new infographic, we have a look at the different language families, their spread and popularity- really a very complex and controversial topic in the classifications of such families.

Did you know that every 14 days a language dies?

Thanks to the crew at Infographiclabs.com for another awesome infographic.

    Each country has a unique culture and language but because of globalization, more and more people are forgetting their native tongue and turning to English. There is no question that a proficiency in English is an advantage but it would also be good to still know and preserve the native languages that make each country unique.
