Los Angeles, Barcelona, Rome, Berlin, Sydney, Antwerp, and Shanghai complete the top 10 in Global Language Monitor's (GLM) 10th Annual Survey.

Slide 5: Delhi was placed 48th last year and Mumbai 38th.

Berlin consolidated its position, while Antwerp completed it steady climb, Sydney had a triumphal return, and Shanghai returns to what many consider its rightful place in the Top Ten, the GLM said.

Asia was well represented with Tokyo (11), Singapore (19) and Hong Kong (20) in the Top 20.

The ranking is based upon GLM's Narrative Tracking technology which analyses the Internet, blogosphere, the top 250,000 print and electronic news media, as well as new social media sources such as Twitter as they emerge.
