English #1? I must dissent. But I am willing to be convinced if you quote a reliable source.

English #2, Mandarin #1 by a fairly narrow margin on total number of speakers; English falls to #3 behind Spanish if you look only at native speakers, with Mandarin extending its lead by a wide margin.

I would have to look it up. Paiktiss's figures are for native speakers but if you include numbers for people who learn a foreign language then the rankings shift.

On a tee shirt I own and occasionally wear:

Yes I do know it all, I just don't remember it all at the same time.

As I said, you are wrong. You are only counting native speakers. Total speakers for English is 1.5 billion. I posted t2ge link.

So if tge question is what is the most spoken language in the world then the anwser is English.

Okay I am a believer. 360 + 500 = 1,500. English it is.

Oerdin

Ok, I made a mistake. "One of the half billion" not "one and a half billion".

Sue me.

Still more than Spanish.

oerdino you're wrong again./
Actually you're wrong in every single platform you ever dared to post and it has been pointed out to you by everyone.
Civfanatics?
wrong
that incredibly nerdy civ site?
wrong

Here?
Wrong again and it is my duty to tell you so. Spanish as a second language. Duh
Your link is wrong.

I don't hate Arabs though I do find Islam extremely objectionable. Hispanics are fine though I want immigrants to be legal. :shrug:
