How many languages are in the world?
Posted by BIML USA TEAM on Aug 26th 2017
Starting with the CONTINENTS:
According to our own count, the total number of languages into which Scriptures have been translated reached the 2,850 mark in 2013.
This enumeration is based on a particular deﬁnition of what constitutes a human language, namely that reﬂected by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in Geneva, Switzerland.
TheISO639-3 standard is a registry of 7,881 language codes and language names published in 2007.
The registration authority of ISO 639-3 is the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL), a missionary organisation. The ISO 639-3 standard grew out of the list of codes established in the Ethnologue, the ﬂagship publication of SIL. Ethnologue appeared ﬁrst in 1951 and its nineteenth edition was published in 2016.
