Map Description:
This map displays the locations where Austronesian languages are spoken throughout East Asia. While these languages are primarily spoken in Taiwan, the extent of this language family also includes a small area in Hainan province off the coast of mainland China. The mixed areas indicate regions where other languages are spoken that cross language family boundaries.

This original map was made by vectorizing data from the MultiTree language database and the Atlas of the World's Languages.
