Study Estonian, its History, Literature or Folklore for a Degree
Compared to other European languages, Estonian is one of the smallest in respect of the number of its speakers. However, if we take into account that 95% of languages (from around 4500 languages spoken in the world today) have less than 100 000 speakers, Estonian is a relatively widely spoken language.
The Finno-Ugric language family includes about a dozen languages spoken in Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Russia and Siberia. The largest Finno-Ugric languages are Hungarian (14 million speakers), Finnish (5 million speakers), Estonian and Mordvin (both around 900 000 speakers).
