    There are six large coun­tries with a ma­jor­ity of na­tive Eng­lish speak­ers that are some­times grouped under the term An­glos­phere. They are, in de­scend­ing order of Eng­lish speak­ers, the United States (at least 231 million), the United King­dom (60 million), Canada (at least 20 million), Aus­tralia (at least 17 million), Ire­land (4.2 mil­lion), and New Zealand (3.7 million).Eng­lish is also the pri­mary na­tively spo­ken lan­guage in the coun­tries and ter­ri­to­ries of An­guilla, A...

It is, by in­ter­na­tional treaty, the of­fi­cial lan­guage for aeronautical and maritime com­mu­ni­ca­tions.
