Page F30 reader poll results on favourite Indo-European language branches

Monday, July 04, 2011

The second of the two polls on the side that are being taken down today was a previous one on the branches of the Indo-European language family that readers liked the most. The poll allowed more than one answer as there is no reason to make anyone choose but a single branch. The results were as follows:


WHICH BRANCHES OF THE INDO-EUROPEAN LANGUAGE FAMILY ARE YOU MOST INTERESTED IN? (PICK AS MANY AS YOU LIKE)

Albanian 10 (7%)
Anatolian 6 (4%)
Armenian 10 (7%)
Baltic 16 (12%)
Celtic 32 (24%)
Germanic 70 (53%)
Hellenic (Greek) 20 (15%)
Indic 13 (10%)
Iranian 26 (20%)
Italic (Romance) 61 (46%)
Slavic 45 (34%)
Tocharian 8 (6%)
Overall IE and PIE reconstruction 23 (17%)

Votes so far: 130

The answers I would have chosen: everything but Albanian, Anatolian, Tocharian. No offense to Albanian (the only living language not chosen), I simply don't know enough about it yet.
