It’s only when a mosquito lands on your testicles that you realized there is always a way to solve problems without using violence.
Seventy-eight percent of the population speaks English at home, leaving 22% with another language as the primary method of communication. Spanish comes in at a healthy second, with 14% of Americans speaking it at home. The remaining 8% comprises 23 million people, split into many different linguistic groups and often in enclaves throughout the nation. The map shows where these enclaves tend to be located.
Unsurprisingly, Chinese-speaking homes are largely clustered on the West Coast, but maintain a healthy presence throughout the mid-Atlantic and Northeast as well. There’s also a large Vietnamese-American population in Texas, particularly in Houston, thanks to the resettlement of refugees in the area after the Vietnam War and subsequent increased immigration. Other language hotspots include large numbers of French-speaking Louisianans and French Creole speakers across Florida. German-speaking households are scattered across the country, likely reflecting Hutterite, Amish and Older Mennonite communities.
I wonder how it would change after the 2nd generation like Italian, German, Greek & Polish & Yiddish.
