Language Defaults

[This was originally posted to the GURPS newsgroup by Bill Seurer. I’ve later added the languages marked with red, and will probably add more in the future. -- Incanus]
While by no means an exhaustive list (Chinese should be broken down for instance) here’s a list of many languages and their defaults.

And if anyone thinks that defaults aren’t “realistic” my wife can tell you otherwise. When she was studying in Austria she went on a trip to Italy with some friends. She was trying to figure out a schedule they had picked up when her friend commented, “I didn’t know you speak Italian.” Well, she doesn’t. She does speak Spanish and that was enough for her to get the info she needed.
