One interesting theory states that the divergence of languages was motivated by selfish or survival instincts, where one tribe would try to make up some code of communication which would deceive or not be understood by another tribe, so that they could attack them or have some advantage over them.
Many languages can be traced to the migration of its peoples, like the Hungarian language, which is said to be of Uralic origin.
One such language is Esperanto, and another is Interlingua, the vocabulary of this latter drawn from many languages, making it easier to learn by much of the world’s population.
