Languages graphic thought interesting

I thought this was really cool. Does anyone know where Pali would be? I found sanskrit.

  • Yes that helps. It says in your link that Pali is an Indo-aryan language so it is in one of the branches on the graphic but just it is not shown in the chart. Latin isn't shown in the chart either.

    Maybe "dead" languages aren't included?

  • Yeah I'm not sure SpinyNorman. Sanskrit is on here and i think it is a dead language at least in similar to latin as only a scholarly language. Probably the chart just overlooked some languages but it does have many.

    Scots is below English, right to the Right of Frisian. Bavarian, Swiss and Low German are directly to the Left.

    Needless to say, the category of "Romance" is synonymous with the language of Rome, Latin, for the region in which Rome is found, Latium.
