Español - Facts about the Spanish language
Spanish, also known as Castilian, is the official language of Spain and 21 other nations around the world. In total, it is estimated that there are over 360 million native speakers of Spanish worldwide. This figure is based on the population figures alone of nations which have designated Spanish as their official language. Added to this figure is a further 40 million speakers of Spanish who are located in countries where Spanish is not an official language, e.g. the USA, where it is estimated 32 million people are Spanish speakers. This combined figure makes Spanish the most widely spoken Romance language spoken in the world and alongside English and Portuguese, one of the most used global languages on the planet.
Spanish is from the Ibero-Romance family of languages and is most closely identified with Galician and Catalan. Among the more major languages, Spanish bears a close resemblance to Portuguese.
Over the centuries, Spanish has developed and evolved into varying forms and strains according to their respective regions. Within Spain, 2 major group of dialects exist: Castilian (which has served as the basis of standard Spanish) and Andalusian. In among the 19 nations in Latin America that hold Spanish as their official language, each has witnessed an evolution of their own respective dialect/regional variation with Mexican Spanish as different from Argentine Spanish as it is from Spanish Castilian.
Spanish is written using the Latin alphabet, with the addition of ñ and uses the acute accent to denote stressed vowels.
