Interesting yet understandable that most are the language of neighboring countries.  (Next most often, as you point out, the minority for which the state has been named.) 

On the point of Switzerland, German is supposedly the majority language, but I had a friend from Brunswick who worked there and said that whoever said that the Swiss spoke German was lying.   :P

I was surprised how common Hungarian is in Romania and Slovakia. And I was surprised to see that Romani, the gypsy language, is the number two language in Hungary!

Also, should Tatar (Mongolian) be considered "Turkic"? I would have expected it to be east Asian. Also, the Huns came from Mongolia too. I would have expected them to be East Asian too.

My guess is that they were just drilling one of the sink holes that are found on the island but it was not really a special burial place or anything.

There are lots of stories, like it could be from the Crusaders and hence the cross, or that it could be from pirates.

There's a fairly sizable hungarian enclave in the center of Romania, as well as other populations along the border.



Also, should Tatar (Mongolian) be considered "Turkic"? I would have expected it to be east Asian. Also, the Huns came from Mongolia too. I would have expected them to be East Asian too.

Tatar was probably originally a Mongolian tribal name but it has since been identified with the group of Kypchak-Turkic tribes that was dominant after Genghis Khan's death.

Approximately there are 6,000 languages in the world. Most languages have less than 1,000 speakers. In a few years, linguists speculate, the majority of languages in the world will be extinct due to increasing globalization and neo-Imperialism.

You've obviously never been to Ohio.  Western half is mostly farmland (used to have more forests), Eastern half is wooded; Cleveland was nicknamed "Forest City" for its integration of trees and parks into the urban landscape. 

Indiana is another story...

How accurate is this map? Does this cover only tuition/fees, or also room/board? Also, is this the cost for students from only the home country, or EU-wide, or international? For example if an American applied and got into a Greek university would there be no cost?

How accurate is this map? Does this cover only tuition/fees, or also room/board? Also, is this the cost for students from only the home country, or EU-wide, or international? For example if an American applied and got into a Greek university would there be no cost?

I can only answer for Greece and Scotland. The 'free' part refers only to tuition; life expenses burden the students. Scottish universities, as the note in the top left corner says, are free to Scottish and mainland EU nationals, not other Brits or overseas students. Greek universities are closed to foreigners; the entry exam is administered exclusively through the Greek school system.

Quote
Woodard lays out his map in the new book “American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America.” Here’s how he breaks down the continent:

Yankeedom: Founded by Puritans, residents in Northeastern states and the industrial Midwest tend to be more comfortable with government regulation. They value education and the common good more than other regions.

New Netherland: The Netherlands was the most sophisticated society in the Western world when New York was founded, Woodard writes, so it’s no wonder that the region has been a hub of global commerce. It’s also the region most accepting of historically persecuted populations.

The Midlands: Stretching from Quaker territory west through Iowa and into more populated areas of the Midwest, the Midlands are “pluralistic and organized around the middle class.” Government intrusion is unwelcome, and ethnic and ideological purity isn’t a priority.

Tidewater: The coastal regions in the English colonies of Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and Delaware tend to respect authority and value tradition. Once the most powerful American nation, it began to decline during Westward expansion.

Greater Appalachia: Extending from West Virginia through the Great Smoky Mountains and into Northwest Texas, the descendants of Irish, English and Scottish settlers value individual liberty. Residents are “intensely suspicious of lowland aristocrats and Yankee social engineers.”

Deep South: Dixie still traces its roots to the caste system established by masters who tried to duplicate West Indies-style slave society, Woodard writes. The Old South values states’ rights and local control and fights the expansion of federal powers.

El Norte: Southwest Texas and the border region is the oldest, and most linguistically different, nation in the Americas. Hard work and self-sufficiency are prized values.

The Left Coast: A hybrid, Woodard says, of Appalachian independence and Yankee utopianism loosely defined by the Pacific Ocean on one side and coastal mountain ranges like the Cascades and the Sierra Nevadas on the other. The independence and innovation required of early explorers continues to manifest in places like Silicon Valley and the tech companies around Seattle.

The Far West: The Great Plains and the Mountain West were built by industry, made necessary by harsh, sometimes inhospitable climates. Far Westerners are intensely libertarian and deeply distrustful of big institutions, whether they are railroads and monopolies or the federal government.

New France: Former French colonies in and around New Orleans and Quebec tend toward consensus and egalitarian, “among the most liberal on the continent, with unusually tolerant attitudes toward gays and people of all races and a ready acceptance of government involvement in the economy,” Woodard writes.

First Nation: The few First Nation peoples left — Native Americans who never gave up their land to white settlers — are mainly in the harshly Arctic north of Canada and Alaska. They have sovereignty over their lands, but their population is only around 300,000.

Nice.  8)  Though I would put Allegheny and Indiana counties in PA as part of Appalachia. Others will have to speak for the other side of Pennsylvania.
