List of polyglots

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A polyglot is a person with a command of many languages.[1] A polyglot may also be called multilingual, although that term is used for communities as well as individuals.

Richard Hudson, professor emeritus of linguistics at University College London, coined the term "hyperpolyglot" for "people who know dozens of languages well".[2][3] Other scholars apply the label to speakers of even more languages: twelve, sixteen, or in the most extreme cases, even fifty or more.[4]

It is difficult to judge which individuals are polyglots, as there is no uncontroversial definition for what it means to "master" a language, and because it is not always clear where to distinguish a dialect from a language.

This list consists of people who have been noted in news media, historical texts, or academic work as speaking five or more languages fluently.
