How Languages Evolve

December 10, 2014 4:55 pm

Everyone loves a nice linguistic family tree. We know you do, because when we shared this very nice specimen on our Facebook page, you liked and shared it in large numbers. And while most of you are probably familiar with the theory behind language classifications, it won’t harm to refresh your mind by watching this short video. It talks about the evolution of languages, starting from the causes of language divergence all the way to the classification of today’s languages.

Even if you happen to be a world-leading expert on linguistic classification you should still watch the video, if only for the nice animations. Enjoy!
