 ==========================================================================
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Hello:

Is it well known how many unwritten languages there are today?
(Ethnologue has miniscule writing information).

Thank you!

I am researching a specific question as to approximate percentages of
time devoted to grammar in different approaches to L2 teaching. (I am
working on a group presentation at NYU).

Thank you in advance,
John O'Donnell
