According to UNESCO data, there are about 6000 languages in the world. Nevertheless there are only about 150–200 languages that are spoken by more than 1,000,000 people (UNESCO Weltbericht/World news 2009). Language does not only function as a means of communication. It is a form of verbal expression of the human mind that contains the identity, values, norms, rules, customs, habits, and views of a language community. The diversity of languages in the world reflects the verbal expressions of the minds of various language communities.
