About the Spanish Language

Spanish or Castilian (castellano) is an Indo-European, Romance code that originated in northern Spain, and slowly spread in the Kingdom of Castile and evolved into the main code of government and trade. It was taken to Africa, the Americas, and Asia Pacific with all the expansion of the Spanish Empire amongst the fifteenth and nineteenth decades. Today, between 322 and 400 million individuals speak Spanish as a native code, creating it the world's 2nd or 3rd most-spoken code by native speakers, depending found on the sources.

Spaniards tend to call this code espa�ol (Spanish) when contrasting it with languages of alternative states, like French and English, but call it castellano (Castilian), that is, the code of the Castile area, when contrasting it with different languages spoken in Spain including Galician, Basque, and Catalan. This reasoning moreover holds true for the language's preferred name in some Hispanic American nations. In this way, the Spanish Constitution of 1978 utilizes the expression castellano to define the official code of the entire Spanish State, as opposed to las dem�s lenguas espa�olas (lit. the alternative Spanish languages). Article III reads as follows:

The name Castellano (Castilian), which pertains straight to the origins of the Language and the sociopolitical context in which it was introduced in the Americas, is preferred in Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Chile, rather of espa�ol, that is more popular to refer to the code as a entire in the rest of Latin America. Some Spanish speakers consider castellano a generic expression without political or ideological hyperlinks, much as "Spanish" is in English.

Spanish is regarded as the official languages of the European Union, the Organization of American States, the Organization of Ibero-American States, the United Nations, and the Union of South American Nations. It is estimated that the combined total of native and non-native Spanish speakers is around 500 million, probably creating it the 3rd many spoken code by total amount of speakers (after English and Chinese). Today, Spanish is an official code of Spain, many Latin American nations, and Equatorial Guinea; 20 countries speak it as their main code. Spanish moreover is regarded as six official languages of the United Nations. Mexico has the world's biggest Spanish-speaking population, and Spanish is the 2nd most-widely spoken code in the United States and the most well known studied foreign code in U.S. universities and universities. Global web use statistics for 2007 show Spanish as the 3rd many popular code found on the Internet, after English and Chinese.

Most Spanish speakers are in Latin America; of all nations with majority Spanish speakers, just Spain is outside of the Americas. Mexico has the many native speakers of any nation. Nationally, Spanish is the official code of Argentina, Bolivia (co-official Quechua and Aymara), Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico , Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay (co-official Guarani), Peru (co-official Quechua and, in some parts, Aymara), Uruguay, and Venezuela. Spanish is additionally the official code (co-official with English) in the U.S. commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Spanish has no official recognition in the previous British colony of Belize; though, per the 2000 census, it's spoken by 43% of the population. Mainly, it's spoken by Hispanic descendants who stayed in the area since the 17th century; nevertheless, English is the official code. Spain colonized Trinidad and Tobago initially in 1498, exiting the Carib individuals the Spanish code. Additionally the Cocoa Panyols, laborers from Venezuela, took their culture and code with them; they are certified with all the music of "Parang" ("Parranda") found on the island. Because of Trinidad's place found on the South American coastline, the nation is a lot influenced by its Spanish-speaking friends. A recent census shows that over 1,500 inhabitants speak Spanish. In 2004, the government introduced the Spanish as a First Foreign Language (SAFFL) initiative in March 2005. Government laws need Spanish to be taught, beginning in main school, while thirty % of public employees are to be linguistically competent within five years. The government equally announced that Spanish is the country's 2nd official code by 2020, beside English.

Spanish is significant in Brazil as a result of its proximity to and improved trade with its Spanish-speaking neighbors; for illustration, as a member of the Mercosur trading bloc. In 2005, the National Congress of Brazil approved a bill, finalized into law by the President, creating Spanish accessible as a foreign code in secondary universities. In countless edge cities and villages (particularly found on the Uruguayan-Brazilian border), a mixed code well-known as Portu�ol is spoken.

In the 2006 census, 44.3 million folks of the U.S. population were Hispanic or Latino by origin; 34 million individuals, 12.2 %, of the population elder than 5 years speak Spanish at house. Spanish has a lengthy history in the United States (various south-western states were piece of Mexico and Spain), and it newly has been revitalized by much illegal immigration from Latin America. Spanish is the many commonly taught foreign code in the nation. Although the United States has no formally designated "official languages," Spanish is formally known at the state level in many states besides English; in the U.S. state of New Mexico by way of example, 30% of the population speaks the code. It also offers strong influence in metropolitan regions like Los Angeles, Miami, San Antonio, New York City, and in the 2000s the code has fast expanded in Atlanta, Houston, Phoenix and alternative main Sun-Belt cities. Spanish is the dominant spoken code in Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory. In total, the U.S. has the world's fifth-largest Spanish-speaking population.

There are significant variations among the areas of Spain and throughout Spanish-speaking America. In some nations in Hispanophone America, it really is preferred to employ the term castellano to distinguish their variation of the code from that of Spain, therefore asserting their autonomy and nationwide identity. In Spain, the Castilian dialect's pronunciation is commonly considered the nationwide standard, although a utilize of somewhat different pronouns called la�smo of the dialect is deprecated. More precisely, for almost everyone in Spain, "standard Spanish" signifies, "pronouncing everything precisely as it is very created," an ideal which refuses to correspond to any real dialect, though the northern dialects are the nearest with it. In practice, the standard technique of talking Spanish in the media is "created Spanish" for formal speech, "Madrid dialect" (among the transitional variants between Castilian and Andalusian) for casual speech.

Spanish evolved from Vulgar Latin, with main affects from Arabic in vocabulary during the Andalusian period and minor surviving affects from Basque and Celtiberian, and also Germanic languages via the Visigoths. Spanish developed along the remote cross road strips among the Alava, Cantabria, Burgos, Soria and La Rioja provinces of Northern Spain (see Glosas Emilianenses), as a strongly innovative and differing variant from its closest cousin, Leonese, with a high degree of Basque influence in these areas (see Iberian Romance languages). Typical qualities of Spanish diachronical phonology include lenition (Latin vita, Spanish vida), palatalization (Latin annum, Spanish a�o, and Latin anellum, Spanish anillo) and diphthongation (stem-changing) of brief e and o from Vulgar Latin (Latin terra, Spanish tierra; Latin novus, Spanish nuevo). Similar phenomena is found in alternative Romance languages also. During the Reconquista, this northern dialect from Cantabria was carried south, and remains a minority code in the northern coastal Morocco. The initially Latin-to-Spanish grammar (Gram�tica de la Lengua Castellana) was created in Salamanca, Spain, in 1492, by Elio Antonio de Nebrija. When it was presented to Isabel de Castilla, she asked, "What do I need a function like this for, if I absolutely learn the code?", to which he replied, "Your highness, the code is the instrument of the Empire."

From the 16th century onwards, the code was taken to the Americas and the Spanish East Indies via Spanish colonization. In the 20th century, Spanish was introduced to Equatorial Guinea and the Western Sahara, and in regions of the United States that had not been piece of the Spanish Empire, including in Spanish Harlem, in New York City. For details on borrowed words and alternative outside affects upon Spanish, see Influences found on the Spanish code.

Spanish is carefully associated to the alternative West Iberian Romance languages: Asturian, Galician, Ladino, Leonese and Portuguese. Catalan, an East Iberian code which displays several Gallo-Romance traits, is a bit more synonymous to the neighboring Occitan code than to Spanish, or indeed than Spanish and Portuguese are to each different. Spanish and Portuguese share synonymous grammars and vocabulary and a widespread history of Arabic influence while a wonderful piece of the peninsula was under Islamic guideline (both languages expanded over Islamic territories). Their lexical similarity has been estimated as 89%.
