  • "draw a very simple graph of the web, with a node for each language and an edge between two languages if more than one percent of the offsite links in the first language land on pages in the second.

    Visible connections:

    Dutch/French (Belgium) and Czech/Slovak duos, Swiss languages, Iberian languages, ex-USSR and Balkan cluster, Malay/Indonesian
