23-I by Roger

world-populationI was on the US Census Bureau’s page and I discovered that there are nearly 7.5 billion INDIVIDUALS in the world presently, 7,495,846,704 as of August 30, 2018.

And two of the four most populous countries in the world start with the letter I, at least in English:

  1. China 1,384,688,986
  2. INDIA 1,296,834,042
  3. United States 329,256,465
  4. INDONESIA 262,787,403
  5. Brazil 208,846,892
  6. Pakistan 207,862,518
  7. Nigeria 195,300,343
  8. Bangladesh 159,453,001
  9. Russia 142,122,776
  10. Japan 126,168,156

Of course, there are other countries starting with the letter I: ICELAND, IRAN, IRAQ, IRELAND, ISRAEL

I am INTRIGUED how the country adjective forms differ:

Ending with IC: Icelandic

Ending with N: Indian, Indonesian, Iranian

Ending with I: Iraqi (or Iraki), Israeli

Ending with SH: Irish

With this quick spin around the world, I hope we get folks around the globe to participate in ABC Wednesday.

  1. Quit an impressive number, isn’t it? At the same time it shows actualy how small we, as just one person, are…. nevertheless, just all of us, each for him/herself can be a very great person…. like some I know here 😉 😉 😉
