Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The languages of North America reflect not only that continent's indigenous peoples, but the European colonization as well. The most widely spoken languages in North America are English, Spanish, to a lesser extent French, and, especially in the Caribbean, creole languages lexified by them. North America is home to a large number of language families and some language isolates. In the Arctic north, the Eskimo-Aleut languages are spoken from Alaska to Greenland. This group includes the Aleut language of the Aleutian Islands, the Yupik languages of Alaska and the Russian Far East, and the Inuit languages of Alaska, Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Greenland.show more
