Which Chinese?

Mandarin? Cantonese?

Oerdin 01-11-2017 00:40:04

English has the most speakers though many are ESL.

RedFred 02-11-2017 05:41:32

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

The Mad Monk 02-11-2017 08:40:50

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.

Oerdin 06-11-2017 12:10:54

The number is about 1.5 billion for total speakers but obly about 380 million for native speakers.

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.

RedFred 08-11-2017 05:29:11

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

Oerdin 08-11-2017 07:15:56

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

Sue me.

Still more than Spanish.

It is second in total speakers behind Chinese. So, yes, you are wrong.

You can do this too, you know.

The Mad Monk 08-11-2017 22:37:48

Are you saying black people don't speak correctly?

I think this one makes your point better.


paiktis 10-11-2017 16:00:12

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.

paiktis 10-11-2017 16:01:14

but we derive that we can add hispanics to your list of hated people along side arabs...

Oerdin 12-11-2017 03:31:28

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