Infographic: Most Widely Spread Languages of the World

More than half of the world's population only uses 23 languages out of the existing 7,102.

Spanish journalist and designer Alberto Lucas López published an infographic about the most commonly used languages. Today in the world we have 7,102 languages, but a mere 23 languages are spoken at least by 50 million people, which adds up to more than half of the world’s population (4.1 billion people).

In the infographic, Lopes grouped languages with the common roots by colors.
