Rule 1: Populace
The populace of languages today is what will affect our languages in the future. With that comes Mandarin; The Chinese will have a large infulence on language, since soon they will become the worlds next superpower! Latin-based languages are the most common of all. All western language is based on the language of the acient Romans. That means that the future languages will be greatly based on Mandarin and Latin-based languages.
Rule 2: Learning easiness
Languages like Mandrin and Hungrian are the worlds hardest. But that also means the future language will probbaly have a large amount of French and Italian bases since they are the easiest learnable Latin-based languages.
Here are my predicted percentages for a average language in a few hundred years time
35% Latin-based languages
So our language will be a mainly European-based language plus the extra Asian! Our language will have a fair amount more than English today! It will be considerately hard to learn needing at least 25 years of learning to master it! How would you expect to learn THAT!
