2190. The World's Living Languages: Basic Facts of Their Structure, Kinship, Location and Number of Speakers, by Siegfried H. Muller (read 26 Feb 1989) I finished reading this book on Feb 26, 1989, and said to myself: Some of the information in this book I could not assimilate too well, but I found much full of interest. Chinese Mandarin has 515 million speakers as of 1964 and at that time English had 265 million. Next are: Hindi-Urdu, Spanish, Russian, German, Japanese, Arabic, and Bengali. I admit I wish many languages would become extinct, so world understanding would be enhanced. I am also glad English is my native tongue. ( )
