So we are having dinner tonight and Elana, my NPR and talk radio-junkie wife, gives us one of the tidbits she learned while listening to NPR today. The question-
“How many different languages are in use in the world at this moment.”
I made my guess and my father-in-law thought I was way too high. (“You’re nuts.” were his exact works.) Well I wasn’t that far off.
So I ask you… How many languages (not dialects but LANGUAGES) are in use today world wide?
Don’t be lame and cheat by Googling it.
