* ''Film/WonderWoman2017'': Diana says that she and the other Amazons know pretty much every language in existence, and she demonstrates this with several, including Sumerian. Sameer also knows many languages, but admits Diana has him beat when he doesn't understand Ancient Greek. One of the only languages she doesn't recognize is Blackfoot, which makes sense because that came from the Americas, which the Amazons wouldn't have contacted.

* Similarly, ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has Linguistics Charms that produce various effects of this type, ranging from "You pick up the language temporarily after listening to it for a few minutes" to "Your body language cuts through the linguistic barrier."

* Similarly, ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has Linguistics Charms that produce various effects of this type, ranging from "You pick up the language temporarily after listening to it for a few minutes" to "Your body language cuts through the linguistic barrier."" Also, as with ''TabletopGame/{{Aberrant}}'' above (it's the same basic system), every point in Linguistics gives you a language family. For some context on that, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-European_languages Indo-European language family]] includes everything from English to Russian to Gaelic to Hindi, and there's no reason to think Creation's language families are any less diverse.

** This joke continues with him being able to speak ''horse''. He must have learned both Baby and Horse at some point in his Eleventh incarnation, since when he was in his Ninth and Tenth forms, he spoke to a baby Rose, several cats and a horse from pre-revolutionary France lost on a spaceship.

*Member of the British Parliament and current Master World Trader for the City of London Robert Woodthorpe Browne speaks English, French, Spanish and German which makes sense as all those languages are under the Livery's purview.
*It is rather rare for most of the previous generations of Nigerians to speak only one language. Prior to the 1990s and beyond the average Nigerian (post-Biafran war) was educated in English, French and German in their British based schools (Portuguese sometimes got thrown in) and they would learn their tribal tongue from their parents. Some Nigerians would learn one of the big three (four if you include Arabic) native tongues of the nation. So you could have a situation in which a middle to upper class Nigerian would speak English French, German, Portuguese, Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba and Arabic because the state demanded it of them.
