Removed Limburgish and added Icelandic and Faroese! My source may be found here although some of the 'languages' listed there are more akin to dialects and thus not counted.

Icelandic is probably the nearest miss. Not enough speakers.

Interesting that you included Limburgish. In Dutch we just consider it a Dutch dialect.

I may change it in future, but it is always difficult to draw the line between language and dialect. I don't include other dialects such as Flemish, Swiss German or Scots though.

Thank you, I've more language quizzes on the way! Frisian now has more type-ins, including 'Friesian' and also 'West Frisian', the name of the largest dialect.

For the sake of this quiz, dialect (to avoid adding a hundred other mutually intelligible languages).
