    Well, it says it prioritises the minorities

    Well, I think there are millions of Kurds in Istambul
    About Finland, the map is right:
    I didn't see the Western Europe map! This map should be our main reference
    No dialects tho

    In the map of Finland, if you look at the map's description, you can see Helsinki labelled as "Bilingual municipalities with Finnish as the majority language". So it should be Finnish.

    In that case... here's the latest version, with Low German, Vilamovian, Scots, Luxembourgish and Faroese added to the map as well as the legend. ;-)

    Iraq: seems Assyrian neo-aramaic is missing, it is present in a couple of villages and towns of northern Iraq, as well as Urmia, Khabur river valley, and a few pickets in Turkey

    Slovakia:there is also a pocket of Hungarians near Nitra/Zlate Moravce, and Rusyns in Medzilaborce.

    Great map @BryanIII ! Are those minorities the majority in the colored regions?
    As for the "striped areas" there must be lots of ways to do it, and I'm far from an expert when it comes to making maps... But the way I do it is this (on MS Paint):
    1. Make a striped field in a new file (just copy it from elsewhere on the map, like Belarus or Occitania).
    2. Make the geographical area that you want hatched white.
    3. Drag the white area (make the selection transparent) over the striped field. Like this:

    Good points! The Middle East is clearly far from done. I am now updating it, so within an hour or so there'll be a new map with a fixed Kurdish & Azeri language area and with Aramaic & Turkmen added in. I'll also take care of Hungarian & Rusyn ;)

    Also, if you're returning to the Balkans I would suggest adding Czechs and Slovaks to Croatia and Vojvodina. Furthermore there are some Croats in Burgenland

    Except for Aromanian and the areas outlined as "minority area" the languages are a minority.

    Godammit you make it seem so easy! I might try it... :p

    Great! I look forward to see the result. Good luck :D

    Thanks for the suggestions! I totally redid Slovakia, Iraq, Syria, Vojvodina and Iran. Also fixed Kurdish in Turkey, but there are too many conflicting maps on their spread, so we're gonna have to look into that. :)

    Are we expanding into Africa and Asia?

    Eventually, we definitely should! First we have a lot of work to do in Europe though, I'm afraid.

    As for the striped areas, in most cases that's because the area has no clear linguistic boundaries - just a general region where both languages are spoken alongside each other (especially in the case of Occitan & French, or Low & High German). If there are any maps that clarify the boundaries, be sure to share them though! :)

    @Tomislav Addai would you be interested in doing a religious MBAM map after the QBAM one is finished? You'd be a great help

    In fact I am actually doing it, with most if USA done, also Middle East, and Europe save Russia and Belarus done.

    What language are these two blobs near Syrian-Turkish border? They don't appear in the legend.

    (also, I like how Rusyn has been added in Slovakia and Vojvodina, but not in Carpathian Ruthenia proper)
