The dots are placed on around where the language is considered to have been developed into the modern form as it is today.

Bit strange for "Min" to be accepted as "Min nan", but to have to type "Min bei" in full. Min nan/Min bei just mean Southern/Northern Min. I think you should either combine the two into "min", or have to type Minnan/Minbei in full for each.

Another NALN here - not a language nerd. But then I'm also NAWCN (world capitals) and NAFN (not a flag nerd). (I am learning, thanks to these quizzes, but I'll never achieve nerd status on any of them.)

If Russian (which originated in European Russia) counts as Asian, why not English, which has over 230 million speakers in India and Pakistan alone?

I'm guessing it's native speakers only.

Now I'm wondering how many people in Asia count English as their native language. (Definitely some in Singapore, probably also in India and maybe Hong Kong. Probably not enough in total to make it into this quiz though.)

I got 20, and there were 5 or 6 others I should've gotten. The rest I have never heard of. Pretty hard!

This should really help me learn the many languages of India and China now that I can better visualize where they are.

One of these days I really need to work on remembering the names of more than about 4 South Asian languages.

Maybe consider accepting Nepalese, it is after all Nepal's demonym.

I'll be honest, I'm surprised I got 22 out of 58. Looking at the answers afterwards, I had a shot at maybe 4 more.

When I saw the lower dot in the Philippines, I tried Cebu and then Cebuese. I guess I should have tried a few more forms!

Haryanvi is certainly not a language, it's a dialect. Many other "languages" stated for India are actually dialects.
