Subject: Future of writing systems
Question: There can be found some graphs and tables estimating the numbers of speakers of the main languages in the following decades. However, I did not manage to find any such estimate for the numbers of users of the main writing systems. Are you aware of any source concerning this? Thank you very much in advance.
