There are approximately 6,500 world languages, with up to 2,000 of them with fewer than 1,000 speakers.  The exact number of languages is unknown, as many un-contacted civilizations in the Amazon and other climates have multiple different languages, and the exact number is unknown.  Also, even in Africa, sometimes every village has a different language.
