More about the Spanish language
After Chinese Mandarin, Spanish is the most widely spoken language in the world. Spanish is spoken as a first language by more than 400 million people worldwide. That is why it is not surprising that a Spanish translation may be requested for a variety of countries, and not just for Spain. Spain has five official languages, comprising:
- Spanish (Castilian) – the only national language;
- Catalonian – regional language which is spoken by some 18% of the Spanish population;
- Basque – regional language;
- Galician – regional language;
- Aramaic – regional language.
Urgent Vertalen is familiar with all five official languages and will make sure that you always receive an accurate translation
Spanish is one of the Romance languages. 406 million people have Spanish as their mother tongue, and 180 million people use Spanish as their second language. This means that Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world, after Chinese. Spanish is also referred to as Castilian.
The historical origin of the Spanish language is to be found in Spain, but these days most speakers of the language are to be found in Latin America.
The Romans spoke Latin. They governed the Iberian peninsula for 700 years. Later on Latin was adapted under the influence of the Celtic Iberian, Basque, Visigoth and Arabic languages. As a result of other political developments Portuguese and Galician also came into existence on the Iberian peninsula; they are still spoken, as is Mozarabic, which is spoken by Spanish Christians in the Islamic regions. On the other hand Catalonian is not derived from Spanish, but from the language that was formed separately from the Roman language and the Latin that was spoken at that time (not the same as classical Latin).
The Spanish language is known among Spaniards themselves as Castilian (Castellano), because the language originated in the region of Castile. From 1492 onwards, thanks to Christopher Columbus, Spanish spread out and became a world language. All the Spanish speaking countries, taken as a whole, are referred to as the ‘Hispanidad’.
Over the years differences in pronunciation and vocabulary have developed between the old and the new worlds. Another language was also added in 1492: Ladino. This is the language that spread out when the Jews were driven out of Spain
Nowadays the language spoken in Latin America is closer to the Spanish of 1492 than the Spanish that is spoken in Spain itself.
Today’s standard language is largely based on the dialect of the region of Toledo.
From 1714 onwards all dialects and regional language variations were not tolerated and were even strictly forbidden.
The dictator Francisco Franco had all libraries for other languages burned down. And anyone speaking the language differently was penalised. After Franco’s death in 1975 the other languages were once more accepted, like Catalonian, Galician and Basque. They were once more given official status in the constitution. Today’s Spaniards would say that people do not speak Spanish in Spain; they speak Castilian.
In terms of grammar and vocabulary there are many similarities (approximately 89%) between Portuguese and Spanish. This means that a Spanish speaker is well capable of understanding a Portuguese speaker.
Due to the history of the many Spanish-speaking countries there are many variants when it comes to pronunciation, with differences of emphasis and sounds, but also differences in grammar and vocabulary.
Spanish has developed and adapted to the customs of each country and district. The use of the language and its unique vocabulary are unusual, because Spanish is to be found throughout the world and specific words are only used for particular purposes in each specific country.
This means that Latin American is different from Spanish.
Basque is not a Romance language and is a completely separate language.
It is said that Spanish is a fairly easy language to learn. Naturally there are different dialects and spoken versions which can cause problems, but Spanish remains the most widely studied language in the world.
The alphabet used to include the letters CH and LL. These two letters have recently been dropped from the alphabet.
Spanish is used in communication over an enormous area of the world. This means that Spanish is a very important language, because it is used in the business and commercial world and in various aspects of the provision of services worldwide.
Spanish is frequently encountered within international business, international politics, and in countless international organisations and institutions such as the United Nations and the European Union. And as a result of the inflow of immigrants to the United States, Spanish has undergone explosive growth in recent years.
Some 10% of the American population has Spanish as their mother tongue.
The countries and regions where Spanish is spoken as first language :
Mexico, Columbia, Spain, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Chili, Guatemala, Ecuador, Cuba, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Paraguay, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Panama, Equatorial Guinea.
