Language Family Map

I thought I'd share this awesome language family map I just found on Wikipedia. It reminds me of the Mappa Linguarum I hypothesized a few months back, only sans dimension of time.

Austronesian is a mysterious family...notice all those islands around Indonesia and then Madagascar way on the other side of the Indian Ocean. Pretty impressive...

"Austronesian" is fun to say. A little like "Hocuscadabra."

Wild that they made it all the way to Madagascar. Too bad Kon Tiki didn't work out because it would be cool to have some pink in all that South American green.

Perhaps there was some pink in South America and it has since disappeared!
