About the French Language

French is a Romance code initially spoken in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Switzerland, and now by about 350 million persons all over the world as either a native or perhaps a 2nd code, with extensive populations in 54 nations.

French is a descendant of the Latin of the Roman Empire, because are languages like Spanish, Italian, Catalan, Romanian, and Portuguese. Its development was additionally influenced by the native Celtic languages of Roman Gaul and by the Germanic code of the post-Roman Frankish invaders.

It is an official code in 31 nations, nearly all of which shape what exactly is called in French La Francophonie, the community of French-speaking countries. It is an official code of all United Nations agencies along with a big amount of global organisations.

Per the Constitution of France, French has been the official code since 1992[8] (although past legal texts have produced it official since 1539, see ordinance of Villers-Cotterêts). France mandates the utilization of French in official government magazines, public knowledge outside of certain situations (though these dispositions are frequently ignored) and legal contracts; advertisements should bear a translation of foreign words.

In addition to French, there are equally a range of territorial languages. France has finalized the European Charter for Regional Languages but has not ratified it since that would go from the 1958 Constitution.

The majority of French words derive from Vulgar Latin or were built from Latin or Greek origins. There are frequently pairs of words, 1 shape being favored (noun) and the additional 1 savant (adjective), both originating from Latin. Example:

* brother: frère / fraternel < from Latin FRATER
* finger: doigt / digital < from Latin DIGITVS
* faith: foi / fidèle < from Latin FIDES
* cold: froid / frigide < from Latin FRIGIDVS
* eye: œil / oculaire < from Latin OCVLVS
* inhabitants of the city Saint-Étienne are called Stéphanois

The last illustration, Saint-Étienne/Stéphanois, illustrates usual practice for gentilics throughout France.

In some examples there is a well-known word from "vulgar" Latin along with a more savant word from classical Latin or Greek.

* Cheval—Concours équestre—Hippodrome

The French words that have developed from Latin are less recognisable than Italian words of Latin origin because as French developed into a separate code from Vulgar Latin, the unstressed final syllable of countless words was dropped or elided into the following word.

It is estimated that 12% (4,200) of usual French words found in a typical dictionary like the Petit Larousse or Micro-Robert Plus (35,000 words) are of foreign origin. Regarding 25% (1,054) of these foreign words come from English and are very recent borrowings. The others are some 707 words from Italian, 550 from historic Germanic languages, 481 from historic Gallo-Romance languages, 215 from Arabic, 164 from German, 160 from Celtic languages, 159 from Spanish, 153 from Dutch, 112 from Persian and Sanskrit, 101 from Native American languages, 89 from different Asian languages, 56 from Afro-Asiatic languages, 55 from Slavic languages and Baltic languages, 10 for Basque and 144 — about 3 % — from additional languages.
