The Languages of Fermilab
To get a better sense of the nationalities represented in modern physics experiments, FermiNews recently conducted a thoroughly unscientific and completely unofficial survey of the laboratory's two largest collaborations, CDF and DZero. We asked the collaborators to tell us by email what languages they speak. We figured that the languages that turned up would give us a pretty good idea of the diversity of the experimenters' nationalities. So far, we have compiled a list of 63 different languages.
If you are a Fermilab experimenter and you speak a language that isn't listed, we would very much like to hear from you. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your experiment, and the languages you speak. We'll keep an updated tally on this webpage.
