How many living languages are there?

Some continents have more languages than others. Not all continents are equally diverse in the number of spoken languages.

Whereas Asia leads the statistics with 2,301 languages, Africa follows closely with 2,138.

There are about 1,300 languages in the Pacific, and 1,064 in South and North America.

Europe, despite its many nation-states, is at the bottom of the pack with just 286.
