Kiswahili?

Kiswahili/Swahili is the main language of Tanzania and a secondary language in many other east African states. I'm surprised not to see it on this list. ScottDG 22:34, 25 December 2011 (EST)

This is a good point, I am going to investigate... --PhilipN 23:01, 25 December 2011 (EST)
Apparently Swahili is the native language of only 787,630 people(http://www.ethnologue.com/show_language.asp?code=swh). Anyway, it seems to be the second language of many more people (in DRC, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda...)--PhilipN 23:28, 25 December 2011 (EST)

English and primary country

I believe the primary country is the country of origin of the language. Therefore, primary country of English is UK and primary country of Spanish is Spain. --PhilipN 23:24, 25 December 2011 (EST)

Seeing as the list is of numbers of speakers, I took "primary" to mean "where the most speakers are." No big deal. ScottDG 23:46, 25 December 2011 (EST)
