Default Languages of the Permatic Imperium

I know we've had some discussion about this before, but I think it would be useful to make a more comprehensive listing of these, for the purposes of homeworld languages, linguistics and whatnot. Now, obviously NIL would have their own languages, but I'm talking about the human languages here.
  • Anglic - already known to be the main language of the Imperium.
  • Slavic - already known to exist and be spoken of [FS 2228] Astana; could also be spoken on some other worlds like [FS 1920] Breslov.
  • Pendragonman mentioned Martel spoke a language called "Frankish"/"Olde French".
  • Something derived from Chinese, since it is the most spoken language on Earth?
  • Something derived from Spanish, since it is the second most spoken language on Earth? Could be combined with Martel's Frankish, possibly.
  • Something derived from the languages of southern Asia, since those are also spoken by a lot of people on Earth? I've been tossing around my head the idea of an "Arabindic" language consisting of a merger between Arabic and Indian-subcontinent languages. This could be spoken on worlds like [FS 2025] Sekhmet and [FS 2027] Beni Hasan.
  • Something related to Africa or Oceania, since those regions aren't represented in the above?
  • And we'd probably have some a priori (i.e. not related to Terra) human languages as well.

Also, there are the IAF Battle Languages.

And I agree with your points. For example, the heavy worlder Bibickians have there own language or at least their own Battle Lang.
