The major, spoken languages in Portugal are the following: Portuguese , English , French , and Spanish . Portuguese is the country's official language. It's the only one of the four major, spoken languages that's the language native to Portugal.

English is spoken by anywhere from just over one-fourth, to just under one-third, of the total population. French is spoken by just under one-fourth. And Spanish is spoken by just under one-tenth. Of the four main languages that are spoken in Portugal, only one is native to the country. For the Portuguese language originated in the long-ago interactions between the Latin language of the ancient Roman conquerors and the ancient languages of the Iberian Peninsula. And ancient Iberia was the geographic space in which the modern nations of Portugal and Spain evolved.The people of Portugal are used to tourists, and indeed people worldwide, not knowing that there even is such a thing as the Portuguese language.

The total increases to 12,000 when census takers include those who are bilingual speakers of Mirandese and another language. But the speakers of Mirandese don't account for even 1% of the total population of Portugal. And so it's a native language that may have regional importance. But it's nowhere close to being one of the main spoken languages. 'Extended languages' are those that are most widespread in their use by an area's speakers.

In a gist it's English by a mile. English Language has an obligatory status in Portuguese Schools same as French (besides of course the Portuguese Language). This mean that every Portuguese person that went or is on school learned English and French. Although both languages are obligatory in the …first years of school, at one point students have to choose between the 2 obligatory languages (English or French) for the rest of the years needed to complete High School, and most students if not all choose English over French. This mean that virtually all Portuguese students understands and speaks at least Basic English, being in most cases their second language. Third, Fourth and Fifth languages include Spanish, French, Italian, German or Latin. This means that roughly speaking a common Portuguese person knows at least 3/4 languages (Portuguese (native), English, Spanish and French).

Native language is Norwegian and supports two official sets ofwritten forms; Nynorsk and BokmÃ¥l. Nynorsk being a collected formof dialect that supports regions that does not speak bokmÃ¥l. Thesami language is also spoken. Answer Our 1st language is Norwegian, our 2nd is English, and the m…ostcommon 3rd is Spanish or French Norwegians generally speaks Norwegian (and a few speaks Sami),there are two written forms of Norwegian; BokmÃ¥l and Nynorsk. Mostly Norwegian, in several varieties. There are also a number of small communities of Lapps. Not all ofthese are in, or even close to, Lapland; to my knowledge some areon the Hardangervidda, and at least two are south of it. Thesespeak the Lap language. Answer Northern Sami, Lule Sami, Kven and Southern Sami are recognized asregional languages. Norwegian, two versions: New-Norwegian (Nynorsk), Dano-Norwegian(BokmÃ¥l). We also have some minority languages which I thinkcounts, like the language of the Lapps. Answer People speak various Norwegian dialects in Norway, but there aretwo main official written languages: BokmÃ¥l and Nynorsk. As writtenlanguages go, BokmÃ¥l is the more widespread and more literarilyaccomplished of the two (and what you'd normally learn if you wereto set about learning Norwegian, especially in the "standardÃ¸stnorsk" or Standard East Norwegian variety spoken in Oslo andmuch of the east); it is heavily influenced by Danish becauseNorway was for a long time under Danish rule, and Danish was thestandard written language in Norway from the 16th to the 19thcenturies. Another official language even closer to Danish is RiksmÃ¥l, but itis not as commonly used. Nynorsk is a revivalist-type writtenlanguage that is based on the Norwegian of the western coastal andmountain dialects, that are much more conservative and moregenuinely Norwegian than BokmÃ¥l. However its writers are far fewerthan those of BokmÃ¥l and it has a much smaller literature, havingonly become a written language I believe in the 19th century.However as a spoken language, dialects similar to Nynorsk are themost numerous, thus one could say that Nynorsk is the most commonspoken form of Norwegian. Another written variety of Nynorsk isHÃ¸gnorsk, a more purist variety. Answer Norwegian, but we have a wide variety of dialects. I live in thesouth and can't undertand many of the dialects only a few milesfrom my town. The sami language has also been granted the status of being anofficial norwegian language, as there are a small population ofSamis living in the far north of Norway. However, these languagesare not actually related. The written language is more interesting. We have (in addition tosami) two written languages; New norwegian and "bokmÃ¥l"/literarylanguage. New norwegian is based on how the people actually talk,and bokmÃ¥l is the norwegianized form of the danish written whendenmark rules over norway. The odd thing is, that the danishinspired language (bokmÃ¥l) now is used by 85-90% of the people.Most have turned on the written language closest to their everydaylanguage. Answer We have two! Both bokmÃ¥l and nynorsk. BokmÃ¥l is the most usedwritten language, so you can say it's the most common. But publicpeople are obligated to answer a letter written in nynorsk withnynorsk, even if they only use bokmÃ¥l. It's not a big difference between bokmÃ¥l and nynorsk, they are noteven different languages, more like accent's. BokmÃ¥l came to Norwaywhen we were in union with Denmark, and can remind you of danish.Both danish and Norwegians understand each other well, but you cannotice the difference. Nynorsk came around about the same time(before this we spoke riksmaal which it's practically the same asdanish) but this accent is a mix of most of the accent's in Norway.A man named Ivar Aasen traveled around Norway to collect it, youcan probably search him up on Wikipedia, and he is both hated andloved in Norway today by school kids (some of them hate that theyhaft to learn both the written languages). Just to mention, none of these are really spoken in Norway. Wespeak with very different accent's which is quite practical becauseyou can instantly hear from where in Norway that person is from(accent's is called "dialekter" in Norway). But if I haft to chooseI would say that "Ã¸stlandsk" is most similar to bokmÃ¥l, and"dÃ¸ling" is most similar to nynorsk. But as I mentioned earlier, noone really speaks bokmÃ¥l and nynorsk. Answer There are two written languages in Norway, "BokmÃ¥l" and "Nynorsk". They are very similar, but are used in different parts of the country. BokmÃ¥l is most commonly used while Nynorsk is, for most people, associated with the west part of the country. These are written languages though, not spoken, and every Norwegian, regardless of which written version they use, speak "norsk" (Norwegian). Norway also have a lot of different dialects. Norwegian. Norwegian the main Dialect is Bokmal Norwegian. There are two ways of writing Norwegian: BokmÃ¥l and Nynorsk. Because Norway is very long for its population size, many dialects are spoken. Some Norwegians and others in the North speak Sami. Norwegian is the main spoken language in Norway. But it takes two main forms, ka Bokmal and Nynorsk. They're both used in business, education, and entertainment. But Bokmal's what about 85-95% of the population uses. There are two, Nynorsk and BokmÃ¥l. Norwegian.

Lisbon has been the capital of Portugal since medieval times (the royal capital dating to the founding of Portugal in 1128 AD). However, it has never been officially declared the capital. It was the capital of the First Portuguese Republic from 1910 to 1926.

English, Spanish, French, Armenian, Albanian, Italian, Dutch, Russian, German, Norwegian, Greek. Just to name a few
Russian - it is spoken by approximately 125 million people (mainly in European Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, and Latvia).

First, a word about Romance: while with a small "r" it means love and desire, with a capital "R" it refers to languages that were derived from ancient Rome. All of the Romance languages, including French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian, emerged out of Latin, the language spoken in the wi…despread world of the Roman Empire. And even though Latin (and the Roman empire) both are long gone, their influence is still felt in the languages people in those countries speak even today. Because the whole Iberian peninsula has been part of the Roman Empire for more than 600 years (until about 400 AD) and over that time a great number of Romans went there to live and work. Moreover, Latin became the official language there over all those years. ( Full Answer )
