I read a few years back that the number of artificial languages
has already surpassed the number of natural languages. Assuming
that language names are evenly distributed amongst dictionary
words, and further assuming that an average native language
speaker has a day-to-day vocabulary of 5,000 words, we can surmise
that every single-word name for a language has been taken by
this stage.

And if not yet, then soon!
