Babel

Luzes, Çepni, Hamsins, Pontic Greeks and others. Wow. I never heard about those ethnic groups or their languages and thought that Turkey only had four distinct live languages on its territory : Turkish (ouralo-altaïc) and dialects, Kurd (indo-european), Armenian (indo-european) and Ladino (indo-european influenced by semitic). I also thought that Greek was almost extinct in Turkey. Looking at a map, I wonder if some communities speaking Georgian, Azeri, Syriac or even Arabic exist in Turkey. I also wonder if some communities on the south-west coast still speak languages with Lydian or Lycian influence.
