This post is going to be about New York. I usually post things related to languages. The reason today is, however, as a gay person I’m joyful that New York became the sixth and largest US state to allow gay marriage. The gay population of New York city is estimated at over half a million.
Back to languages: 72% of New Yorkers speak English mainly but 28% speak another language at home. One of the below sentences is each understood by at least 100,000 New Yorkers:
Él lo ama.
Lui lo ama.
Он любит его.
Li renmen l ‘.
ער ליב אים.
On go kocha.
The languages are the most commonly spoken by New Yorkers in this order: Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Russian, French, French Creole, Yiddish, Polish and Korean. Read more on this here.
