Here is the in depth list of languages. But it's too deep to track and find audience for it.

You missed Dogri – Ankit Sharma Sep 23 '16 at 10:10

Yes, you're missing hundreds of languages. Ethnologue lists over 400. Some of those are colonial or other expat languages, but you'd still be looking at hundreds of Indian languages.

wow, it's awesome list. Thanks – codetoshare Nov 21 '16 at 7:24
I was wondering whether English should be included... – Andrew Grimm Feb 22 at 21:29

Yes we are missing languages like Sema, Ladakhi, etc...

See this wikipedia article for more details.

All the languages listed in that article are natively spoken in India.

Ladakhi is Tibetic language – codetoshare May 2 '16 at 4:13
@codetoshare Okay. Glad you added Sema. You could also add other Indo-Aryan Languages in the Wikipedia article I mentioned. They are Kashmiri language, Konkani language, Santali language. – Kolappan Nathan May 2 '16 at 5:01
@codetoshare Also we could add Sanskrit Language. – Kolappan Nathan May 2 '16 at 6:16

What about the Austronesian languages of India, like Santali, Munda, Korku, Sora, Khasi? What about Burushaski (language isolate spoken in Northern Pakistan)? Sentinelese?

What about Pali (Historic language between Sanskrit and the modern Indo-Arian languages)?


You missed Konkani language

Is an Indo-Aryan language belonging to the Indo-European family of languages and is spoken along the South western coast of India. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages mentioned in the 8th schedule of the Indian Constitution and the official language of the Indian state of Goa.
