Hello,

> What's everyone's favourite language group(s)?

Top 10 (in no particular order):

- Germanic (no taunting!)
- Finno-Ugric
- Celtic
- Paleoasiatic
- Slavic
- Sino-Tibetan
- ancient Semitic (Cl. Arabic, Ugaritic, Bibl. Hebrew..)
- Caucasian (hey, I'm in the world's top Caucasology center! :-))
- Mon-Khmer, Miao-Yao and sundry continental SE Asia languages
- Fula (I name the language, because I'm no expert at the tangle of
languages W Africa is in)

...many more when I get to know them better :-)

Bottom:
- I cordially dislike Romance, with perhaps the sole exception of
Romanian
