List of dialects by number of native speakers(世界の方言の母語話者人口順リスト)

I defined dialects as the language that is not authorized by local governments.
The number is based on English Wikipedian page of "List of languages by number of native speakers"
(The number of Osakan Language's speakers is based on population in Kinki Region)
(人口は英語版Wikipediaの「List of languages by number of native speakers」を参照。近畿方言(関西弁、大阪弁)は近畿地方の人口をそのまま当てはめた。)
English, French, German, Italic, Belgian, Russian dialects in colonized countries are excluded from the list.
