  • Relation to Standards | Ethnologue
    range of applications particularly including information systems It provides as complete an enumeration of languages as possible including living extinct ancient and constructed languages whether major or minor The Ethnologue does not cover this entire scope it seeks to catalog all known living languages languages that have gone extinct since the inception of the Ethnologue around 1950 and languages that have no native speakers but which are still in use as a second language in certain communities Long extinct and constructed languages that fall outside this scope are documented by Linguist List The most widely used standard for identifying languages in Internet documents such as in HTTP headers or HTML metadata or in the XML lang attribute is BCP 47 of the Internet Engineering Task Force In that standard any three letter identifier from ISO 639 3 is recognized as a valid language identifier Thus any of the three letter codes reported in Ethnologue is valid for use in Internet documents Prev Next Overview Relation to Standards Structure of the Code Tables Using the Code Tables Downloading the Code Tables Browse by Countries Language Names Language Codes Language Families Map Titles Products Current Edition About Ethnologue Abbreviations Bibliography Credits Downloads

  • Using the Code Tables | Ethnologue
    For instance if the user were interested only in Afghanistan the following SQL query would return just the table rows for that country SELECT FROM LanguageCodes WHERE CountryID AF Alternatively the following link to the Ethnologue web site could be used to generate a report listing all the languages for Afghanistan http www ethnologue com country AF LanguageIndex tab documents 46 836 distinct names used for the 7 469 languages The entries in this index of names indicate in which country each name is used The table thus contains 58 073 records since many of the names are used in more than one country and some are used with more than one language or dialect The following shows the entries in the name index for the first three language identifiers LangID CountryID NameType Name aaa NG L Ghotuo aab NG D Alumu aab NG D Tesu aab NG DA Arum aab NG L Alumu Tesu aab NG LA Alumu aab NG LA Arum Cesu aab NG LA Arum Chessu aab NG LA Arum Tesu aac PG D Serea aac PG L Ari We see that aaa has just one name Ghotuo aab has four alternate names two dialect names and an alternate dialect name in addition to its primary name aac has a dialect name in addition to the primary name of Ari The LanguageIndex tab table would be used to implement a search by name For instance the following query returns the three letter codes for all the languages that use the name xyz SELECT DISTINCT LangID FROM LangaugeIndex WHERE Name xyz Note that DISTINCT is used since the same language could be known by the same name in multiple countries To allow the user to verify that a proposed identifier is indeed the right one the software would

    population that Ethnologue reports is the sum of the total populations of L1 speakers of the living languages Those population numbers come from a variety of sources and from significantly different points in time In addition the Ethnologue lacks population estimates for about 4 of the world s languages and also does not automatically extrapolate population estimates to the current year but waits for reports from reliable sources As a result our world population count varies considerably from current census estimates 31 Oct Functions of Languages in Countries In an earlier post I mentioned a new category of information Status in which we provide a measure of the state of endangerment or development of each language using the Read more On what basis are the countries grouped into regions The division of the world into 5 major areas which are subdivided into 22 regions follows the groupings of countries used by the United Nations Statistics Division in its reporting See http unstats un org unsd methods m49 m49regin htm Which major country has the highest density or concentration of languages Vanuatu with 110 living languages and a geographic area of 12 189 square kilometers has one language for every 111 square kilometers 43 square miles Small political entities like Vatican State and Monaco are not included here Which countries have the most languages Papua New Guinea has the most languages with 839 living languages Indonesia comes in second with 706 living languages Third place goes to Nigeria having 520 living languages What country has the most languages Papua New Guinea with 839 living languages Can you send me more information about country X Browse the Country Indexes to find the languages in which you are interested and follow the links to available publications Browse by Countries Language Names Language Codes
