Indo-European Languages Balto-Slavic Family Vijay John and JonathanSlocum The Balto-Slavic languages are spoken mainly in EasternEurope; they were not attested until late in the first millenniumAD. There are two major groups: Baltic, and Slavic. These two aregenerally agreed to be closely related to… one another and, as awhole, they have always been spoken in the same geographic area,ranging from what is now eastern Germany to modern-day Russia.However, Baltic languages have exchanged "popularity" with Slaviclanguages: Baltic languages were originally spoken over a muchwider area than is now the case, and Slavic languages wereoriginally spoken in a much smaller area. Nowadays, the territoryoccupied by speakers of Slavic languages has expanded considerably,whereas the territory dominated by speakers of Baltic languages hasshrunk to a very small region encompassed by the countries ofLatvia and Lithuania. Currently there are only two surviving Baltic languages, Latvianand Lithuanian, both from the East Baltic sub-group; the entireWest Baltic sub-group, most notably Prussian, is extinct. But thereare many surviving Slavic languages, and these are divided intothree sub-groups: West Slavic, East Slavic, and South Slavic. Theearliest attested Slavic language, dated to the 9th century AD, isOld Church Slavonic, an extinct Slavic language that has influencedmodern Slavic languages to varying degrees as discussed later. Baltic The earliest known writings in Baltic languages were quiterecent compared to the earliest writings in other Indo-Europeanlanguages. However, it is known that the Baltic languages werespoken as early as the late Bronze Age from Poland to the UralMountains in western Russia. They seem to have been veryinfluential in Eastern Europe, and they were involved in trade withother peoples. For example they interacted with Finnic peoples tothe north, who borrowed many words from Baltic languages; thesewords included agricultural or farming-related terms, kinshipterms, and technologies. Although the Baltic languages are nowspoken primarily in Latvia and Lithuania, many rivers in EasternEurope have Baltic names to this day. The territory occupied by Baltic languages became smaller due toGothic and Slavic migrations and, later, to invasions by theTeutonic Knights (German crusaders). The Lithuanians controlled alarge empire, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, from 1362 to 1569. Theearliest written materials in the Baltic languages appeared onlyafter this empire collapsed, but Baltic languages (especiallyLithuanian) preserve a number of early Indo-Europeancharacteristics that have been lost in other Indo-Europeanlanguages. Therefore, although the Baltic languages were attestedvery late, their conservative nature makes them useful inIndo-European historical linguistics. West Slavic The West Slavic languages are divided into threegroups: Sorbian, Lechitic, and Czech-Slovak. The Sorbian languagesare minority languages spoken in eastern Germany. The Lechiticlanguages are spoken in and around Poland and include Kashubian (aPomeranian language, i.e. spoken on the border between Germany andPoland), Silesian (on the border between Poland and the CzechRepublic), and Polish, which is the third most widely-spoken Slaviclanguage today (and the most widely-spoken West Slavic language);other Lechitic languages were formerly spoken in Germany but arenow extinct. The main Czech-Slovak languages are Czech and Slovak, which did notbecome distinct languages until the 15th century. West Slaviclanguages are those that have been least influenced by Old ChurchSlavonic; this is because Old Church Slavonic spread from theregion of the Southern Slavs, and Hungary separated speakers ofWestern Slavic languages from that region. In addition, Old ChurchSlavonic was the liturgical (religious) language of the EastOrthodox Church. Since speakers of West Slavic languages wereconverted to Roman Catholicism rather than to East OrthodoxChristianity, Latin was generally used as their liturgical languageinstead of Old Church Slavonic. The earliest full-length texts inWest Slavic languages generally seem to date to the 14th century. East Slavic The East Slavic languages include Russian, Ukrainian,Belarusian, and Rusyn (a lesser-known language spoken in many partsof Eastern Europe). Russian is the most widely-spoken Slaviclanguage, and Ukrainian is the second most widely-spoken. However,just as some West Slavic languages are now extinct, not all EastSlavic languages have survived. Two examples of extinct East Slaviclanguages are Russian Church Slavonic and Old East Slavic. RussianChurch Slavonic is a modified East Slavic version of Old ChurchSlavonic that was originally used as a liturgical language, and OldEast Slavic is the ancestor of all modern East Slavic languages. Overall, the East Slavic languages are more closely related thanthose of any other Slavic group. East Slavic languages were sostrongly influenced by Old Church Slavonic that they did not becomedistinct until the 13th century at the earliest, as literature inEast Slavic per se is dated to ca. 1200 in Kiev, which wasthe capital of the old Russian (or East Slavic) state of Rus' andis now the capital of Ukraine, while there were no large numbers ofliterary works in distinct East Slavic languages until about 1600.South Slavic Modern South Slavic languages can be divided into twogroups: Western and Eastern. Western South Slavic languages include Serbo-Croatian(Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian) and Slovenian; Eastern South Slaviclanguages include Bulgarian and Macedonian (not genetically relatedto the Greek dialect of Alexander the Great). These languages aremostly spoken in the Balkans, especially in Bulgaria and [what was]Yugoslavia. Unlike Serbo-Croatian and Slovenian, Bulgarian andMacedonian have some linguistic features borrowed from non-SlavicBalkan languages, particularly Greek and Albanian. Like the EastSlavic languages, the South Slavic languages were stronglyinfluenced by Old Church Slavonic. In fact Old Church Slavonic is often considered to be a SouthSlavic language, though it also seems to be closely related to theProto-Slavic language from which all Slavic languages descended.The first modern South Slavic language to be written appears to beSlovenian, in the 10th century.

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. Norsk (I think that's how you spell it) or some people just call it Norweigen. Norwegian, Sami and so on. There are several cultures and selveral languages, however everyone speak Norwegian. Norwegian and Sami. The 1 official language of Norway is Norwegian. In addition, these languages are locally recognized: Northern Sami Lule Sami Kven Southern Sami ( Full Answer )
