    advantage of the opportunity It s the third category relevance where the Ethnolgogue data is um er well relevant The report notes that for some people there just isn t any content online that is relevant to them Part of what enhances and in our view may even be crucial for relevance is the availability of content in the language of the user An interesting sound bite from the report is To provide relevant content to 80 of the world would require sufficient content in at least 92 languages They got to that estimate by using Ethnologue s Global Dataset to calculate speaker populations The Ethnologue Global Dataset makes it possible for researchers to replicate the statistical tables that show up under the Statistics tab on the Ethnologue home page It also enables them to create their own tables link our data to their own and to make comparisons look for correlations and be as creative as they can be in ways that haven t been possible previously without a lot of manual labor The license for the Global Dataset comes in two flavors One of them will certainly meet your needs if you want to do research about language in relation to almost anything else Oh and just to let you know that progress is being made to increase relevance online our colleagues at UNTI Unión Nacional de Traductores Indígenas in Mexico launched websites in 11 indigenous languages of Mexico on the 20th of March I don t know how much that lowers the percentage of the unconnected reported by Internet org or if any of those 11 languages are even in the list of 92 that Internet org considers to be top priority but it is a positive development not only for the state of connectivity but most

  • Welcome to the 18th edition! | Ethnologue
    languages which were long extinct but remained in our database until now This edition also expands our coverage of the world by including separate entries for two additional countries the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey In addition we have added new maps for Austria and Georgia and expanded and improved several other maps Along with these updates and improvements to the website we have updated all of the country reports and the Global Dataset The three regional volumes which will be released in short order will also be updated and include all of the 18th edition data and additional features And we re not done yet While we continue to work diligently to research the languages of the world we can benefit from our users who are familiar with specific countries and languages We value your input and feedback and we encourage you to register create a profile and provide us with corrections suggestions and updates using the Feedback tab on each country and language page online On Mother Language Day we hope you will be able to find YOUR mother language or perhaps that of one of your ancestors in the Ethnologue and celebrate the linguistic diversity that surrounds us Log in or register to post comments Comments Remove French from UK Now that Jersey and Guernsey are represented separately French should be removed from the languages of the UK and added as an immigrant language Submitted by John Cowan on Sat 2015 02 21 16 19 Thanks for your comment John Thanks for your comment John This may indeed be something we need to clean up However we think there may well be at least a small long established multigenerational community of L1 speakers of French resident in the United Kingdom It is certainly true that the large majority of L1 speakers of French that we had previously counted in the UK are the speakers of the newly recognized Norman French spoken in the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey and as we now report that there are a large number of L2 speakers within Britain We will try to get more information and revise our reporting accordingly Submitted by M Paul Lewis on Sun 2015 02 22 07 25 Index pages Wonderful However it looks like you need to regenerate the index pages For instance http www ethnologue com subgroups unclassified contains a dead link to the deleted Imeraguen page Submitted by Christina Faber on Sun 2015 02 22 02 14 Thanks for pointing this out Thanks for pointing this out Christina We ll see what went wrong and fix it as quickly as possible Lots of details to attend to in this transition As this is the first time we ve done this with our new web platform we re learning Submitted by M Paul Lewis on Sun 2015 02 22 07 28 Francophonie 2007 Why do you still use the Francophonie 2007 edition when the 2010 and 2014 are available Submitted by Loup Solitaire on Mon

  • What we are working on here at Ethnologue Central | Ethnologue
    newly formatted with the 17th edition and now that we have the production process more or less worked out we expect to be able to make the updated print and digital products available much more quickly and cleanly this time round For the longer term we have also just launched a research project aimed at trying to develop a way to report on and describe language policies country by country We have an intern who has joined us for a few months who is doing a lot of reading right now on language policy as well as collecting case studies from around the world We ll analyze the results of her work and see if we can produce a concise globally applicable way to describe the policy environment in each country If any of you are language policy wonks and want to know more or want to give us some pointers towards existing categorizations leave a comment below or use the Contact Form or just send an email Even if there is just something regarding policy that you ve been wishing that Ethnologue or anyone would provide let us know No guarantees that we ll be able to implement everybody s suggestions but knowing what would be helpful to you is very helpful to us As you might imagine each new edition involves a lot of work not only in collecting the data updates a process that has been going on for months now but also in proofreading and formatting As we get closer to each deadline our excitement grows in seeing how the Ethnologue has improved this time We also are reminded each time how much more needs to be done Trust me we are aware that there are lapses and inconsistencies We re really grateful for the Ethnologue

  • For unto you a multilingual son is born | Ethnologue
    on that night was about as diverse as one could imagine However within the humble setting of the stable of an inn it is likely that the shepherds were speakers of Aramaic while the keeper of the inn and others residing there that night were multilingual in Aramaic Hebrew and Greek at least Those who were educated probably also used Latin for literary purposes Recall too that the young child Jesus was taken by his parents to Egypt for a time where if it is accurate that they resided for several years he may have had some exposure to Coptic cop though probably much of daily life would have been carried out using Greek grc even there The world into which Jesus was born was and is still a multilingual one Jesus no doubt grew up navigating a language ecology that included at least four languages Aramaic Hebrew Greek and Latin The Bible tells us that he read from the Hebrew scriptures and it is probable that his conversation with Pontius Pilate at his trial was at least partially conducted in Latin Christians believe that in Jesus God took on human form That He became a multilingual man is only one of the ways but an important way in which that identification with humanity is fully demonstrated From all of us who work on the Ethnologue to all of you in any and all of the languages you know use or study Merry Christmas and may the Peace of the Christ Child be with you Log in or register to post comments Comments Latin or Greek Surely it s more intrinsically probable that Jesus and Pilate would have spoken together in Greek Granted that the sign on the cross was in Latin as well as Greek and Hebrew letters Latin

    as in the past Rather they are available for purchase through your preferred bookseller e g Amazon Barnes and Noble to name just two The print versions provide a snapshot of the online data but also contain additional summary information that is not available on the website and we think that makes it worth getting hold of the volume or volumes that are most useful to you As I ve mentioned before we are now updating the online edition annually Our strategy is to focus our research on one third of the languages of the world each year corresponding to the organization of the print volumes and rotate sequentially through the three focus areas While we may be intensively updating the languages of a different part of the world Africa and Europe Americas and Pacific Asia in successive years we also publish any other updates or corrections from any part of the world in the next scheduled edition So each new online edition contains the latest and best information that we can provide By using print on demand technology we are able to update the print editions annually as well Librarians take note As we work out the bugs and gain experience with the technology we expect that the print versions of future editions will be available very shortly after the website is updated I have also mentioned previously that Ethnologue country reports are available for purchase from this website The country reports are downloadable PDF documents with working internal hyperlinks These handy reports include full indexes including in most cases an index of languages by state province within the country statistical summary tables and maps These also contain some representations of the data that are not available online Though we expect many researchers will find one or more of the print volumes to be useful for some home schoolers or classroom teachers for example a country report may be just the resource you need They are inexpensive and easy to download We have a sample report available so you can see the way the reports are organized and what they include We hope these additional resources will serve you well and we invite your comments and suggestions The best way to make comments and propose corrections is to become a registered member of the Ethnologue community and post your feedback on the specific country or language page You can also comment on this blog post or you can use the general contact form for more general comments or to address an issue not related to a particular country or language Log in or register to post comments Comments how can i download it how can i download it Submitted by chunlin yao on Wed 2014 11 12 03 36 ETH 17 print edition Hi Chunlin The print volumes can only be ordered online through a bookseller who will ship them to you If you have access to Amazon com that is one way but there are other booksellers who
