About the Lithuanian Language

Lithuanian (lietuvių kalba) is the official state code of Lithuania and is known as among the official languages of the European Union. There are about 2.96 million native Lithuanian speakers in Lithuania and about 170,001 abroad. Lithuanian is a Baltic code, carefully connected to Latvian, although they are not mutually intelligible. It is created in an adapted variation of the Roman script. Lithuanian nonetheless retains most authentic attributes of the nominal morphology found in the well-known ancestors of the Indo-European languages, and has consequently been the focus of much research in the region of Indo-European linguistics. Studies in the field of comparative linguistics have shown it to become the many conservative living Indo-European code. Lithuanian and additional Baltic languages passed through Proto-Balto-Slavic stage, during which Baltic languages developed many exclusive and non-exclusive lexical, morphological, phonological and accentual isoglosses with Slavic languages, which represent their nearest living Indo-European relative. Moreover, with Lithuanian being thus archaic in phonology, Slavic words will frequently be deduced from Lithuanian by normal sound regulations.

According to some glottochronological speculations the Eastern Baltic languages split within the Western Baltic ones between 400 AD and 600 AD. The differentiation between Lithuanian and Latvian started after 800 AD; for a lengthy period they can be considered dialects of the single code. At a minimal, transitional dialects existed until the 14th or 15th century, and possibly because late because the 17th century. Additionally, the 13th- and 14th-century career of the western piece of the Daugava basin (carefully coinciding with all the territory of contemporary Latvia) by the German Sword Brethren had a substantial influence found on the languages' independent development. The earliest surviving created Lithuanian text is a translation dating from about 1503–1525 of the Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary and the Nicene Creed created in the Southern Aukštaitijan dialect. Printed books existed after 1547, but the amount of literacy among Lithuanians was low through the 18th century and books were not commonly accessible. In 1864, following the January Uprising, Mikhail Muravyov, the Russian Governor General of Lithuania, banned the code in knowledge and publishing, and barred utilize of the Latin alphabet completely, although books printed in Lithuanian continued to be printed across the edge in East Prussia and in the United States. Brought into the nation by book smugglers despite the risk of stiff prison sentences, they helped fuel a growing nationalist sentiment that finally led to the lifting of the ban in 1904.

Jonas Jablonskis (1860-1930) prepared substantial contributions to the formation of the standard Lithuanian code. The conventions of created Lithuanian had been evolving during the 19th century, but Jablonskis, in the introduction to his Lietuviškos kalbos gramatika, was the initially to formulate and expound the imperative principles that have been thus indispensable to its later development. His proposal for Standard Lithuanian was based on his native Western Aukštaitijan dialect with some qualities of the eastern Prussian Lithuanians' dialect spoken in Lithuania Minor. These dialects had preserved archaic phonetics largely intact due to the influence of the neighbouring Old Prussian code, while the alternative dialects had experienced different phonetic shifts, yet the many archaic qualities are found in the South Aukštaitija dialect including -tau, -tai use rather of -chiau, -tum or in rather of į or the endings -on, -un rather of -ą, -ų. Lithuanian has been the official code of Lithuania since 1918. During the Soviet career , it was selected in official discourse together with Russian which, as the official code of the USSR, took precedence over Lithuanian.Lithuanian is regarded as 2 living Baltic languages, together with Latvian. An earlier Old Prussian Baltic code was extinct by the 19th century; the additional Western Baltic languages, Curonian and Sudovian, went extinct earlier. The Baltic languages shape their own distinct branch of the Indo-European languages.

Lithuanian is spoken mostly in Lithuania. It is furthermore spoken by ethnic Lithuanians living in today's Belarus, Latvia, Poland, and the Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia, also by sizable emigrant communities in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Russia right, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uruguay, Spain and France.

2,955,200 individuals in Lithuania (including 3,460 Tatars), or about 80% of the 1998 population, are native Lithuanian speakers; many Lithuanian inhabitants of additional nationalities moreover speak Lithuanian to some extent. The total worldwide Lithuanian-speaking population is about 4,000,000 (1993 UBS).
