    we ve been talking about here in the Ethnoblog as well Another interesting use of the Ethnologue statistical information occurred in early May when it was the basis for the Globalist Quiz a syndicated feature item that came to us through the San Jose California Mercury newspaper The quiz focuses on the question What percentage of the world s living languages is in imminent danger of becoming extinct The Ethnologue is cited right up front and almost the entire quiz is based on our statistical summaries And finally a very nicely laid out but somewhat flawed infographic appeared on the Nerdgraph website that curiously cites statistical data from the 16th edition but uses the distribution of languages among the various vitality categories that we ve just published in the 17th edition For example they state that there are approximately 6900 languages in use Ethnologue 16th edition 6 905 while the 17th edition now including Dormant languages among the living identifies 7 105 living languages The infographic includes a bar graph Life of Languages in Numbers however that shows how we have categorized the EGIDS levels into five groups Institutional Developing Vigorous In Trouble Dying and the distribution of the world s languages among within those groupings That information comes from the 17th edition There are some other factual inaccuracies in the infographic as well The most egregious of these is the assertion that most languages are constantly used by less than 1 000 speakers Our data show that the median L1 speaker population is 7 000 so it would be more accurate to state that half of all the world s languages have fewer than 7 000 speakers In fact we report that just under one quarter of all of the living languages have fewer than 1 000 speakers We
