The origins of more than 20 languages in a single, beautiful and didactic image
The young Finnish illustrator Minna Sundberg has created a beautiful family tree in which she brings together the main Eurasian language groups, starting from a detailed cluster of data recently published by Ethnologue. However, since Eurasian languages are so many (think, for instance, of the fact that just in the Iberian Peninsula you’ll find at least 10 different languages, and pretty much the same could be said of the British Isles), Sundberg had to include only languages spoken by at least one million people, as explained in this post published by Gizmodo. The good news is that if you want to buy the poster, you do not have to travel all the way to Finland. Clicking here would suffice.
