Hi!

Do you know any "ranking" of the languages and language families that
contributed the most with somewhat internationally recognized
morphemes (including loanwords, roots, preffixes, etc.) ? I mean
something like this (a fast guess to start with):

1. Latin
2. Greek
3. English
4. Arabic
5. French
6. Spanish
7. Japanese
8. Hebrew
9. Persian
10. German

1. Indo-European
2. Afro-Asiatic
3. Altaic
4. Uralic
5. Sino-Tibetan
6. Bantu
7. Dravidian
8. Austronesian
9. Tai-Kadai
10. Tupi-Guarani

Até mais!
