Explain how so many languages spoken in south asia are related?
sorry the questions about social studies
Many of them have only a few parent languages -- but the modern languages differ because isolated peoples have gradually formed new dialects and languages.
im still having a hard time figuring out how they are related
As people move into an area, they bring their languages with them. Often these new languages are combined with indigenous languages to produce dialects and new languages.
i asked my dad to help me explain this too and he read what you wrote but he doesnt know how to explain this to me either
