The Language Tree

This is a great illustration of the history of Indo-Eupropean Languages. I have no doubt that the history of humanity follows a very similar path. I would be interested to know the dating of the various breakaway branches and also see some details of the rest of the tree. Its interesting that this is such a small part of the tree. I would guess the bulk of it is African languages. If anyone can add some more info please do.

    I find it interesting (and typical) that Portuguese is left off, despite the fact it has 10 times as many native speakers as Romanian.

    I was looking for Finnish and Hungarian. Any relationship to the Baltic languages? Additionally, it would be appropriate in my opinion to include Yiddish and Ladino on this tree.

      Interesting question. It looks as tho Finnish and Hungarian belong to the Uralic language family which branched off sometime before Indo-Eupropean languages shown in this diagram, as did Yiddish and Ladino which are members of the Afro-Asiatic language group.
