About the Vietnamese Language:

Vietnamese (tiếng Việt, or less commonly Việt ngữ), formerly recognized under the French colonization as Annamese (see Annam), is the nationwide and official code of Vietnam. It is the mom language of the Vietnamese individuals (người Việt or người Kinh), who constitute 86% of Vietnam's population, and of about 3 million overseas Vietnamese, nearly all of whom reside in the United States. It is moreover spoken as a 2nd code by some ethnic minorities of Vietnam. It is piece of the Austroasiatic code family, of which it has the many speakers by a noticeable margin (several occasions greater than the alternative Austroasiatic languages place together). Much vocabulary has been borrowed from Chinese, and it was initially created utilizing the Chinese writing program. The Vietnamese writing program used now is an adapted variation of the Latin alphabet, with extra diacritics for tones and certain letters.


Vietnamese was diagnosed over 150 years ago to be piece of the Viet-Muong (or Vietic) grouping of the Mon-Khmer branch of the Austroasiatic code family, a family that additionally involves Khmer, spoken in Cambodia, plus different tribal and territorial languages, including the Munda languages, spoken in eastern India, and others in southern China. Even though this might be supported by etymological comparison , some linguists nonetheless believe that Viet-Muong is a separate family, genealogically unrelated to alternative Mon-Khmer languages.


It appears probably that in the distant past Vietnamese shared more characteristics prevalent to additional languages in the Austroasiatic family, including an inflectional morphology along with a richer set of consonant clusters, that have subsequently disappeared within the code. However, Vietnamese appears to have been heavily influenced by its place in the Southeast Asian sprachbund—with the outcome that it has acquired or converged toward characteristics like isolating morphology and tonogenesis. These characteristics, which can or could not have been piece of proto-Austroasiatic, however have become piece of most phylogenetically unrelated languages of Southeast Asia—for illustration, Thai (among the Tai-Kadai languages), Tsat (a member of the Malayo-Polynesian group within Austronesian), and Vietnamese each developed tones as a phonemic feature, although their respective ancestral languages were not initially tonal. The Vietnamese code has similarities with Cantonese regarding the particular intonations and unreleased plosive consonant endings, a legacy of archaic Chinese.

The ancestor of the Vietnamese code was initially based in the region of the Red River in what exactly is today northern Vietnam, and during the next expansion of the Vietnamese code and folks into what exactly is today central and southern Vietnam (through conquest of the historic country of Champa and the Khmer individuals of the Mekong delta in the vicinity of present-day Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnamese was linguistically influenced generally by Chinese, which came to predominate politically in the 2nd century B.C.E.

With the rise of Chinese political dominance came radical importation of Chinese vocabulary and grammatical influence. As Chinese was, for a long period, truly the only medium of literature and government, in addition to the main created code of the ruling class in Vietnam, much of the Vietnamese lexicon in every realms consists of Hán Việt (Sino-Vietnamese) words. In fact, because the vernacular code of Vietnam slowly grew in prestige toward the beginning of the 2nd millennium, the Vietnamese code was created utilizing Chinese characters (utilizing both the authentic Chinese characters, called Hán tự, and a program of newly built and modified characters called Chữ nôm) adapted to write Vietnamese, in a synonymous pattern because employed in Japan (kanji), Korea (hanja), and different nations in the Sinosphere. The Nôm composing reached its zenith in the 18th century when several Vietnamese writers and poets composed their functions in Chữ Nôm, many notably Nguyễn Du and Hồ Xuân Hương (dubbed "the Queen of Nôm poetry").

As contact with all the West grew, the Quốc Ngữ program of Romanized writing was developed in the 17th century by Portuguese and additional Europeans concerned in proselytizing and trade in Vietnam. When France invaded Vietnam in the late 19th century, French slowly changed Chinese as the official code in knowledge and government. Vietnamese adopted countless French terms, including đầm (dame, from madame), ga (train station, from gare), sơ mi (shirt, from chemise), and búp bê (doll, from poupée). Additionally, countless Sino-Vietnamese terms were devised for Western tips imported through the French. However, the Romanized script didn't come to predominate until the beginning of the 20th century, when knowledge became popular along with a easier writing program was found more expedient for training and correspondence with all the general population.

Geographic distribution

As the nationwide code of most ethnic group, Vietnamese is spoken throughout Vietnam by the Vietnamese folks in addition to by ethnic minorities. It is also spoken in overseas Vietnamese communities, many notably in the United States, where it has multiple million speakers and is the seventh most-spoken code (it really is third in Texas, 4th in Arkansas and Louisiana, and 5th in California). In Australia, it's the sixth most-spoken code.

According to the Ethnologue, Vietnamese is furthermore spoken by significant numbers of individuals in Australia, Cambodia, Canada, China, Côte d'Ivoire, Finland, France, Germany, Laos, Martinique, Netherlands, New Caledonia, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Senegal, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States and Vanuatu.

Official status

While spoken by the Vietnamese individuals for millennia, created Vietnamese didn't become the official administrative code of Vietnam until the 20th century. For nearly all of its history, the entity today termed as Vietnam utilized created classical Chinese for governing reasons. Written Vietnamese in the shape of chữ nôm was chosen for administrative reasons during the short Ho and Tay Son Dynasties. During French colonialism, French superseded Chinese in management. It wasn't until independence from France that Vietnamese was selected officially. It is the code of training in universities and universities and is the code for official company.
