Spanish (Español)

SpanishBackground

Spanish evolved from Vulgar (colloquial) Latin, and is a Romance language from the Indo-European language family.  Due to Spanish originating in the Castile region of Spain, it is also known as Castilian (Castellano).  Although Spanish and Castilian seem to be synonyms of each other, with organisations using these terms interchangeably, the Spanish Constitution of 1978 defines the official language of Spain as Castilian to differentiate it from the other languages spoken in the country, namely Galician, Basque, and Catalan.

Spanish claims second place on the list of most spoken languages according to number of native speakers, with a 2015 study revealing 470 million people using Spanish as their primary language and a further 90 million speaking it as a second language.  Spanish is recorded as the official language in more than 20 countries worldwide, including Spain, Hispanic America, and Equatorial Guinea.  It is also commonly spoken in Gibraltar, Switzerland, the United States of America, and Morocco, to name just a few.  In addition, Spanish is an official language of the United Nations, and the European and African Unions.

Usage

Due to the large geographic area over which Spanish is spoken, many different dialects can be found.  Although these regional vernaculars are not dissimilar enough to prevent easy communication, dialects do vary slightly according to location, and the same word can have a different meaning in the various districts.  Dialects might also contain terms particular to the people and area in which they are used.  It is largely agreed that Portuguese- and Spanish speakers can understand each other with varying degrees of comprehension, with the breakdown in understanding occurring mostly due to pronunciation, and not grammar or vocabulary.

Spanish has been influenced by many languages over the centuries, among which are Catalan, Portuguese, Galician, Occitan, French, Italian, Arabic, and Nahuatl.

Wolof

WolofBackground

Wolof started as the language of the Lebou people, and is a member of the Senegambian branch of the Niger-Congo language family.  A 2006 survey found that out of a total of 10 million speakers, approximately 4.2 million of these speak Wolof as a first language. 

Although Wolof is not an official language in any country, many people use it as a primary language.  In Senegal, it is the most extensively spoken language, with almost 40% of Senegalese being native Wolof speakers, and a further 40% using Wolof as a second or learned language.  Furthermore, in Gambia 20–25% of the population speak first language Wolof, and in Mauritania roughly 7% of inhabitants are native Wolof speakers.  In Senegal, Wolof is used as the common tongue when various ethnic groups gather in cities and towns.

Usage

Senegalese, Mauritanian, and Gambian Wolof are made up of different language and writing rules, making each one diverse.  Each vernacular also draws from different languages for their technical loan words.  In addition, further dialectical differences can be found between rural and urban areas.  This being said, there still appears to be a shared clarity between the dialects in both written and spoken Wolof.

Wolof borrows words from the official languages in the countries in which Wolof is widely spoken; namely French from Senegal, English from the Gambia, and Arabic from Mauritania.  Conversely, English has borrowed a few words from Wolof, for example yummy from nyam (“to taste”).

Although 1974 saw the standardisation of the Latin alphabet as the official script used for Wolof in Senegal, a few of the senior Senegalese men still prefer to write Wolof using the original Wolofal script, which is a version of Arabic script.

Russian (russkiy yazyk)

RussianBackground

Russian is a member of the East Slavic branch of the Indo-European language family.  In addition to being the most extensively used of the Slavic languages, Russian can also be found over the widest physical area.  Out of a total of approximately 260 million speakers worldwide (according to a 2012 survey), over 150 million people – about 99.4% of the Russian population – claim Russian as their first language, making it the 8th most spoken native language in the world.

Besides being one of six official languages of the United Nations, Russian is spoken as either a first or additional language in many countries in the world, including Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Bulgaria, to name just a few. Furthermore, since 1975 Russian has also been one of two official languages aboard the International Space Station.

Usage

The “Golden Age” (from the end of the 18th to 19th centuries) saw the standardisation of the Russian language, resulting in it being used as the national literary language.  As a result, 94% of Russian students receive their teaching mainly in Russian.

Throughout the eras, Russian has been influenced by many languages, including Greek, Latin, Polish, Dutch, French, Italian, Turkish, Persian, Arabic, Hebrew, and English.  Russian is a relatively consistent language, although there exists a large number of dialects.  Standard Russian is used throughout the country for written and spoken purposes, with multiple smaller-scale variations being used depending on location.  Some linguists divide Russian dialects into two primary regional groups, namely Northern and Southern; while others prefer three groups – Northern, Central and Southern.

The Russian speaking countries of the former Soviet Union are systematically substituting Russian with their own local languages, thereby slowly reducing the number of Russian speakers in the world.

Punjabi

PunjabiBackground

Punjabi is a member of the Indo-Aryan group of the Indo-European language family, and is the 10th most commonly spoken language in the world (2015).  Over 100 million people (2010) speak Punjabi worldwide, both in the native Punjab districts of Pakistan and India, and by Punjab emigrants in countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, United Arab Emirates, the United States of America, Saudi Arabia, and Australia.

In addition to being one of India’s 22 scheduled languages, Punjabi is also an official language of India and the Indian State of Punjab.  Punjabi is not categorised as an official language of Pakistan, despite being the most commonly spoken language in the country. This is due to Pakistan not approving any regional language for official language status at national level.  Nevertheless, Punjabi is the official provincial language of the Punjab Province of Pakistan.

Usage

Punjabi can be divided into multiple dialects, subject to regional variances.  In India, the leading Punjabi dialects are Majhi, Doabi, Malwai, and Pwadhi; while in Pakistan they are Majhi, Pothohari, Hindko, and Multani.  Further to these there are roughly eleven additional vernaculars.  Punjabi dialects run together in such a manner that they ultimately become Hindi in India and Sindhi in Pakistan.  A handful of linguists refer to certain Punjabi dialects (such as Majhi, Hindko, and Saraiki) as languages in their own right, thereby reducing the proportion of Punjabi speakers in the world.

Similar to numerous other contemporary Indo-Aryan languages, Punjabi developed from Sanskrit; and large portions of Punjabi prose include expressions from Sanskrit, Arabic, Persian, and other Indic languages.  The Majhi vernacular is believed an esteemed dialect due to the fact that it is used as the standard for written Punjabi.  In Pakistan Punjabi is written using the Shahmukhi script, whereas in India the Gurmukhi script is used.
