How many languages exist in the world?
The actual number of languages spoken in the world is difficult to calculate. One of the problems is that of the definition of what constitutes a language. This leads to the following range in answers:

there are exactly 409 languages
- According to the National Virtual Translation Center, there are about 6,900 languages in the world. For more information, see external Related Link below.
- The Ethnologue organization's current catalog includes 6,809 distinct languages. See related links below for more information.
- The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language says that estimates of total living languages in the world vary from 3,000 to 10,000.
- Voegelins' Classification and Index of the World's Languages (1977) lists 20,000 languages and dialects, grouped into about 4,500 living languages.
- No exact figure exists, and we are losing languages every year, as only living speakers die. But a good estimate is about 6,800 languages, according to the Linguistic Society of America.

According to the Shipwreck Central website, there are 1363 (and counting) documented shipwreck sites/found wrecks. The true number can never be truly known, as there are many …wrecks that will likely never be found- either with physical wrecks or in documents, as these things no longer exist.
more than you can imagine like 4 jk about 4,000,000,000
Answer If you are asking how many different faiths there are around the world it depends totally on what you consider a faith. Is agnostic a faith? Is atheism a faith? … If you are looking for a number of faiths in Christianity. . . several years ago there were more than 30,000 Christian faith structures. The easiest way to answer your question is to look at faith structures around the world. Islam and Christianity are two of the larger faith systems. Again the Islamic faith system breaks down in many different belief systems. Judaism, for example, has many different faith structures based upon the belief or creed of the individual belief group. All of this is a long way to come around to an answer. The 'correct answer' is tat the number of religions changes almost on a daily basis, but the overriding faith structure are manifold. ' Answer It is impossible to accurately predict the number of religions individuals obtian. There are many small, isolated religions in certain parts of the world. Groups living in areas that hinder communication and interaction often tend to be small..thus preventing diffusion from occuring. Answer It should also be noted that in the "Humanist" philosophy, each persons religious theology is unique, therefore the answer would be equal to the current population of the Earth.
170,243,000 dolphins live on this world yes there is but when they have babys what is going to happen?... more dolphins see so there going to be more then that, at the same t…ime there is an immense slaughter of dolphins going on worldwide, in places such as Taji(sorry for spelling) for more info on that check out the cove. :-)
difficult question, 6912 are known to be spoken
Don't worry about the future. Focus on present languages because no one knows how long anything will be around for in the future.
There are about 150 to 200 cylotrons in the world. About 35 of these are operated by radiopharmaceutical companies and are used solely for the production of medical radioisoto…pes. Another 25 are used in part for radioisotope production. However, most of the above cyclotrons are not of sufficient power to produce large quantities of Iodine 123, which is the focus of Quasar Group's main initiative and to solve a severe shortage in the United States and to a lesser extent in Europe. The type of cyclotron that is needed for this project are 30 MeV (million electron volts) that can produce large quantities of Iodine 123 utilizing Xe 124 gas target systems. This method produces an extremely high purity product and is the most easily managed compared to lower energy production methods utilizing Te 123 solid targets.
there are 50,000 cultures in the the world!!
There are over 8,000 languages being spoken on earth today, but the number is rapidly dwindling, as indigenous peoples adapt to modern civilization.
there is a lot people lol Current estimates place the number at about five thousand. The border line between dialects and distinct languages is not always clear.
As a single planet the earth is estimated in age by using several sources. First there are obviously still some parts of the surface of the earth that give us a date going bac…k to about 3.4 billion years. However this is only as old as the oldest rock we have found on earth. Such a procedure cannot tell us if there is older rock available or even if there is not it only tells us the earth is 'at least' that age. It doesn't tell us if its older...only that it can't be any younger. To further evaluate the problem we need to look at how planets form to begin with. Planets are formed after a sun starts to shine. The debris left around the new star forms rings (much like you might see on Saturn). These rings are known as planetary or solar accretions discs. The rings slowly begin under the forces of gravity to form larger pieces... as these pieces orbit the new sun the collide and clump together more. Since some travel faster than others the larger pieces accumulate the smaller ones... Over time all the debris in each of these separate accretions rings will eventually be clumped into one or perhaps several planets. In the case of the Earth we now think there is supporting evidence that there were in fact two separate planets... the early earth or (proto-earth) and another planet about the size of Mars which has been posthumously named Xia. At some point after both planets formed they collided with one another. So I suppose the real question is when did this happen and how do we know? because this is the start of our planet the previous two planets were not our planet. Well we know because not every single piece of dust or rock in the original ring of debris is used up. There is still some out there. Every year as the earth orbits the sun it picks up more and more of it. But it will probably never pick up all of the remaining debris. There are probably still a few large pieces too... but although on some videos and in textbooks the earth and the sun are pictured close together and very large. In real terms this is not the case. The distances between the earth and these pieces of debris are actually very large. It is essentially like throwing a tennis ball out of a plane and expecting it to hit an ant on the head. That's easy to do if the entire ground were covered in ants but if there are just a few its very unlikely. This process of the earth mopping up the remaining bits of debris is called planetary accretion. Every now and then a piece of debris which matches the same signatures as the rocks we know formed the early earth is just large enough to make it through the atmosphere and when we find these we can date them. To measure dust sized particles we fly into the upper atmosphere and pick them up with sensors and some really high tech equipment, and Both NASA and ESA have also measured such particles using spacecraft. So far the results have always been the same. The earth is approximately 4,540,000,000 years old give or take 40 million years. Now when we say 'give or take' 30 million years that might sound a long time but when you consider the total age it actually represents a little under 1% or so. The reason its such a small time in relation to the overall estimate is that we simply haven't found any rocks in our accretion disc any younger than 4.5 billion years old. That does not mean there aren't a few still there... but its not looking like there are many, and since there are older ones then that's clearly the best benchmark. The reason there is about a one percent deviation is that all dates are generally supplied in scientific terms with what is referred to as a 'deviation' its basically a mathematical expression of how reliable the actual figure is. So in this case its 99.3% accurate with 99% confidence. There is not all the debris formed at the same time and indeed some of the debris is not from the original material left at the formation of the sun but was also added as new material after the impact of Earth with Xia. and some material was attracted into the disc of debris from elsewhere in the solar system. However this is less likely than it might sound and accounts for an extremely small percentage of the original material. Far less than the 1% deviation. Now this of course relies on just the debris in our accretion disc. But to confirm the findings it is likely that other planets formed around the same time. To achieve a better understanding we also need to date the debris in the mars accretions disc and the Venus accretion disc and perhaps even take samples of asteroids etc. So far as we can in fact measure these by using several forms of spectral analysis of debris etc. they confirm our findings. So the answer is, as we know it now, the earth is at least 4.54 billion years old.
Excluding the hundreds of different dialects, there are about 46 main languages. However, there are probably still uncharted civilizations that have their own language.
about something trillion.
The exact number of how many viruses exist in the world is not known because there have been some that have yet to be discovered. Also, many known viruses are also able to mut…ate into brand new viruses. This makes it next to impossible to get an exact count.
Currently, twelve different XML Schema languages exist. All twelve languages are used exclusively in XML Schema, which is a special kind of XML document. XML documents are doc…uments formatted in a way that allows both humans and machines to understand easily.
