If you look at my list you'll notice that all but one are Asian languages. Of those Asian languages, all but one are spoken primarily in East Asia, the other in Southeast Asia. So, I'm definitely region biased.

Italic peoples are the speakers of the Italic (or Romance) languages & we also have the Germanic & Celtic peoples.

Who? Bulgarians? Because of the Turkic Bulgar substrate?

I don't know about that. I don't think Uzbek speakers can understand the Oghuz languages.

Azerbaijan is a serious human rights offender, on par with the likes of Egypt & Russia.
