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.   Tongue

I stopped counting after Ireland.  Thus, my number is correct.  (I started counting from top right going clockwise.)

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.

I didn't realize that Ohio had so few trees.  Yet another reason to dislike them.

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...
