LINGUISTIC FAMILY MAP
Though several newer linguistic maps exist, this 1967 map more adequately portrays the linguistic families and the specific languages within those families. The map does not use the current romanization system for the Chinese place names. For the current spelling, refer to the above map. The numbered people group names have been reproduced here with modern spellings (as shown in the Ethnologue) so you will be more likely to recognize them.
