According to the late, renowned UCLA linguistics professor, Vyacheslav Ivanov, there were at least 224 identified languages in Los Angeles County. This did not include differing dialects. Professor Ivanov estimated that publications were being locally published in about 180 of these languages. Only 92 different languages had been specifically identified among students of the Los Angeles Unified School District.
