It's interesting how many native speakers of constructed languages we have.

The discrepancies with the data on http://bit.ly/nativespeakers are due to the following.

1. If the number on my page is higher, it's because I've visited profile pages of older members and added them to my list if they had that information there. If the information wasn't there, I wrote private message to these members and included them if they responded, telling me what their native languages were.

2. If the number is lower, it's likely because I filter out all members claiming more than one native language. However, I do write each of these members asking them to tell me what their actual native language is or what their strongest language is and add them into my list if they respond.

While, of course, there are those who have more than one native language, I'd rather err on the safe side.

According to last weekend's exported data, we have 820 members claiming to be native speakers of 2 or more languages, 80 or those claim 3 or more native languages, 14 of those claim 4 or more native languages, the highest being a member who claims 48 native languages.

It is important to note that the UI string in the Languages interface says "Native level" and not "Native".

Tatoeba does not, in fact, collect data on what is a user's native language, it only asks a user if they feel their language skill is at a "native level".
