Graph explaining concept of group
• The graphic on the left, from nineteenth century's Smith geography textbook, was supposed to show the "types" belonging to a human race, the "Yellow" or "Mongolian" one. Anthropologists today state that such race-based worldview was an invention, and that differences between human groups are actually related to learned cultural behavior.
The much-necessary (for classification purposes) division on groups made here at is based on one such cultural aspect, which is language. This page, accordingly, presents a list of 7,300 or so existing language groups in the world, following the naming and coding classification by SIL's Ethnologue.
Clicking on each group's name will take you to a page with general information on its architecture. Clicking on its image will take you directly to the group's architectural types page.

This is page number 1. Currently groups span across 144 pages. Each page displays 50 groups.
