I love language and infographics, so when I ran across this fantastic infographic depicting the major non-Asian world languages, I couldn’t resist. Here’s how it is described on the Matador Network:
The manner in which languages evolve over time is immensely complex, and can be kind of difficult to understand. So linguists like to visually represent languages as a tree. Like most academic diagrams, the tree is usually a fairly dull thing to look at, but Finnish-Swedish webcomic artist Minna Sundberg has put together this spectacularly beautiful depiction of where the world’s Nordic languages originally came from.
It’s more than an infographic; it’s a piece of art.
Would love to see a similar one for Asian languages!
