    I think I read that on Wiki there is only about 400,000 people that use the Icelandic language.

      There's only 320k people in-country, and probably 4% percent of those or so don't speak much Icelandic.  And most second-generation Icelandic immigrants to other countries don't speak Icelandic, and it's been a long time since any major exoduses.
