According to UNESCO, half of the world's 6,000 languages "occur in only eight countries: Papua New Guinea (832), Indonesia (731), Nigeria (515), India (400), Mexico (295), Cameroon (286), Australia (268) and Brazil (234)."

And the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has the translation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into over 300 languages.

It's all so overwhelming, and I really wish I could learn all of these languages - every single one of them...
