Romansh has been added to the quiz.

Nice idea for a quiz but I have some comments:

- Sorbian (Wendish) is a Slavic language, not Germanic.

- 5 minutes seems a little too little for 110 languages.

I'm always surprised when I see Silesian but not Rusyn but I understand Rusyn was not in the source here.

There are more things that don't add up.

Both Rhaeto-Romance and Friulan are on the list but if you go to the wikipedia page of Rhaeto-Romance, it says it's a subfamily of Romance languages that includes Friulan.

When I type in Romansh, which is one of the four national languages of Switzerland, I don't get anything, which I think is wrong. It should either be its own language or at least count for Rhaeto-Romance.

Good quiz, but definitely needs more time. 10 minutes at least for 110 answers.

Great quiz but you need to make it 12 minutes or so

Good quiz but surprised to see no Romansh. Another mistake I just spotted is that Friulan should be spelt Friulian

Apparently, it can be spelt both ways. Either spelling is acceptable.

Friulian still doesn't work.

Does this not include immigrant first languages? I'd imagine Mandarin, Arabic to be up there also.

Why Flemish is not included?

It's really another dialect compared to Dutch.

+3
Level 61

I've asked the same question, talking to Dutch speakers, and they said it isn't. There are lots of minor dialects of Dutch (in certain places each village speaks a different dialect), but that doesn't make any of them a different language. And that applies to Flemish as well.

The traditions of Flemish people are considered a separate culture (not a separate language) because they live in a state which is separated from the Netherlands. They have their own cities, writers, artists, customs, recipes, but not a separate language.

That's as much as I know (not being a Dutch speaker, though, so I might be wrong).

I made a mistake yesterday, sorry. I wanted to write "not a separate dialect" instead of "not a separate language" as a reply to your question, and I don't know why I didn't. :) Now I can't edit my comment any more. Nevertheless, that's what I meant.

This is fun! Amid all the weird ones I missed out some obvious ones like Maltese and Romansh... anyway......

May we have "Ladin" as a type-in for "Ladino"? It's what the always-correct Wikipedia calls it.

Interesting quiz! Would love if you accepted langue d'oc for occitan.
