Re: Supported fraction of world population

I'm not sure where some of the data for the supported fraction of the
world population comes from; it doesn't seem to come from the sources
mentioned.  E.g., for English, you counted 1 billion speakers, but
photius.com gives only 322 million speakers.  photius.com says the
source is the ethnologue, available online at
http://www.ethnologue.com .  For English, Ethnologue gives 341 million
first language speakers and 508 million second language speakers; both
well short of 1 billion.
