The English language is the world's number one communications vehicle and information source. But it does so with the cooperation of such major non-English languages as Mandarin Chinese. Contributors typically want to know about the native languages and cultures of former colonies in Africa and Asia; immigrant, minority ethnic and refugee communities worldwide; indigenous Australians; Pacific Ocean islanders; and Scandinavian and Slavic countries.

All street signs and highway directions in Israel are printed in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

There are about 1 million people who speak Russian, and most people in Israel speak some level of English. English is taught everywhere, and holds a semi-official status. Most street signs and highway instructions in the country are posted in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

Street/road signs are posted in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

Radio and TV broadcasts are in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

The most common household language is Hebrew, followed by Arabic and English.

Newspapers are published in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

Business is conducted in Hebrew, Arabic, and English.

English, Russian and to some extent Amharic are common but not official, though English is taught as a second language and occurs on many signs (road signs, product labels) together with Hebrew and Arabic, and Russian is also often used in various contexts.

The primary official language in Israel is Hebrew. The majority of the population know some English, and many of the population are fluent in English. Arabic is widely spoken, as are the languages of the countries from which immigrants have come to Israel in the past 70 years; a few of those are Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Estonia, Spain, China, Germany, France, Greece, Egypt, Ethiopia, Turkey, Roumania, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Portugal, Netherlands, and several others.

Mexico

What languages are spoken in Mexico?

Mexico is a nation with a huge linguistic diversity. Spanish is the de-facto language (meaning Mexico does not have any official language) spoken by 92.7% of the Mexican population. 63 Amerindian languages are also recognized as national languages and can be used for official purposes; these include Nahuatl, Yucatec Maya, Mixtec, Zapotec, Tzeltal Maya, Tzotzil Maya and Otomi. It is estimated 5.7% of the population, or about 6 million people (the second largest after Peru), speaks any one of these languages besides Spanish and 0.8% speaks only one of these Amerindian languages. Nahuatl is spoken by about 1.5 million and about 800,000 to 1.2 million speak Yukatek Maya and about 700,000 more speak other Mayan languages.

There are also many non-indigenous languages spoken in Mexico, the most important being English - spoken by English-speaking immigrants, many residents on the northern border states of Mexico and many people who use it on a daily basis for business and tourism activities.

Finally, other foreign languages include German, French, Arabic, Russian, Hebrew, Korean and Chinese, spoken by less than 0.8% of the population; most of them are spoken by first or second generation immigrants. One example of these is the rather large Orthodox Jewish community in Mexico City, keeping many of their customs intact, including their language.

Well, books and papers in general normally mention Spanish and Náhuatl, but undoubtedly some other indigenous (native) languages are still spoken, and maybe some groups don´t speak Spanish!

Prophet Muhammad

What are the Muslim holy books called and in which languages?

Answer 1Qur'an is the only holy book of Muslims and Islam although Muslims believe in the divinity of all other God holy books (including the Torah and the Bible) as well as all other God prophets (since Adam through Noah, Abraham, Moses,..., and ending with Muhammad; peace be upon them all). Refer to questions below to know about Quran; about the Islam morals as extracted from Quran; and about the fundamentals of Islam.

Quran was revealed by God to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Arabic (that is still an Alive language). However, Quran meanings have been translated to almost all languages of the world as Muslims are spread allover the world and speak their own country languages.

The holy book of Islam is called the Qur'an. Muslims are committed to all teachings of Quran. Quran reflects real and true words of Allah (or God and same God in Christianity and Judaism) that had been revealed to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon). Per teachings of Quran and prophet Muhammad, Muslims believe in all God holy books as God revelations to His prophets (including Torah and the Bible) but not committed in their teachings. Muslims are committed; in addition to commitments to Quran teachings; to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) teachings through his sayings and practices (that is called Sunnah).

Refer to the related question for more information on other holy and religious books as well related questions on more information about Qur'an holy book and its teachings.

How did language come into being?

Language came into being as a result of evolution. Once hominids (probably Homo erectus) gained the capacity for enough energy, they gained certain muscles which allowed them to make a broader range of sounds. The first language was likely used generally for hunting and such so that members of a group could communicate and more efficiently find food and remain safe. Check out "Walking With Cavemen" by BBC, it gives you an entire outlook on the evolution of humans! It is pretty fascinating.

However, globalization has brought about further evolution of languages as each language keeps enhancing its vocabulary and phrase bank as they listen to other languages. For instance, before now, the Igbo language word or phrase for good morning varied from dialect to dialect. Some dialects would say, "I sala chi?"for good morning, while some would go, "Ndewo."Today, having mixed with speakers of English and other languages, most Ibos greet quite differently: "Ututu oma." Ututumeans morning, while oma means good. The Ibo phrase for good morning has so evolved to reflect its equivalent in the international language spoken by many Ibos-- English.

Chinese Language and Culture

What languages are spoken in the People's Republic of China?

"Chinese" is not just one language; it is really a family of many dialects, some of which are so different from one another that they could possibly be considered different languages. Speakers of one dialect often can't understand speakers of other dialects. However, the Chinese languages been written in a uniform way (Chinese characters) for thousands of years.

Some of the dialects in the Chinese language family include Mandarin (Putonghua) spoken mostly in the North, Cantonese spoken mostly in Guangdong, Shanghainese (Wu), Hakka, Minbei, and Minnan. There are also numerous ethnic groups in China who speak their own languages, separate from Chinese, such as Zhuang, Manchu, Miao and Uyghur. Mandarin is the official language of the People's Republic of China, and most young people in the PRC can speak Mandarin in addition to their native dialect/language.

Nationally people speak mandarin Chinese, or putonghua, with most local dialects varying slightly from the standard Chinese, but Cantonese, a dialect popular in Guangdong province and among many overseas Chinese, differs largely from the mandarin in pronunciation (not so in writing).

The official languages of China are Standard Chinese (Mainland), Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Portuguese, Uyghur, Tibetan, Mongolian and Zhuang. Apart from these there are many different indigenous languages, dialects and minority languages spoken in the country, bringing the total number of living languages in China to around 292 different languages.

There is no real one answer as Chinese has many dialects (e.g. Mandarin, Wu, Xiang, Hakla, Yue, Min Nan, etc.) which are mutually unintelligible to speakers of other dialects.

There are 4 official languages in Switzerland. In order of the percentage of the population which speak them they are: German (63.7%), French (20.4%), Italian (6.5%) and Romansh (0.5%). Different languages are spoken in different parts of the country.
Switzerland has four official languages: German (63.7% total population share, with foreign residents; 72.5% of residents with Swiss citizenship, in 2000) in the north, east and center of the country; French (20.4%; 21.0%) to the west; Italian (6.5%; 4.3%) in the south.[114] Romansh, a Romance language spoken locally by a small minority (0.5%; 0.6%) in the southeastern canton of Graubünden, is designated by the Federal Constitution as a national language along with German, French and Italian (Article 4 of the Constitution), and as official language if the authorities communicate with persons of Romansh language (Article 70), but federal laws and other official acts do not need to be decreed in this language. The federal government is obliged to communicate in the official languages, and in the federal parliament simultaneous translation is provided from and into German, French and Italian.[115]

What languages are spoken in France?

The only official language of France is French. This has been enforced in the Constitution (article 2).

Other languages have been spoken on the French soil. Most of them, due to the language repression policy, are now seriously endangered.

It just depends on regions some regions speak different languages but most regions speak French. Breton, Corsican, Occitan, Catalan, Basque, Alsatian, Flemish, are regional languages in France, but it isn't difficult to find locals who speak English, German, and other languages. Tourism and other commerce has fostered the use of other languages by natives for a long period.

The schools do teach English classes and because of the influx of people from other parts of the world other languages can be heard, but French is the national language. The top three languages of France is 1.French 2.Basque and 3.Catalan

We generally count 10 regional languages: alsatian-lorrain (upper German dialects), arpitan (or francoprovençal), basque, catalan, corsican, flemish (dutch dialect), ligurian (padanian dialect), occitan (or provençal or langue d oc), romani, and yiddish (native in Alsace).

We should add the dialects of French generally grouped as "languages of oïl" (picard, walloon, gallo, poitevin-saintongeais, normand...) and the languages of overseas possessions.

And finally we could add all the languages spoken by foreigners...

Klingon, Urdu, and Esperanto

Well, obviously French. But most Europeans speak about six languages each, normally including English, and their borders. In this case, Italian, Spanish, or German, maybe. Also maybe an Asian language, Portuguese, or maybe a Scandinavian language. They sort of have a choice, but most normally at least speak English. However, if you are going to France, you do not know any French and you are American, I would suggest learning these words in French, 'I'm sorry. I don't know French.' or something like that. You might be wondering, 'Why would I say that?' but it's... polite.

Historically, Basque at the western end of the Pyrenees, Provençal in the South, Breton in Brittany. These are tiny-minority languages nowadays, with Basque the most genuinely living. There is also a Franco-German dialect in Alsace which is considerably different from French.

French is the official language of France, spoken by about 85% of the population. Other major languages of French are English (34%), Spanish (13%), German (8%), and Italian (2%).

2. Swiss German

3. Italian

2) Occitan: a language very similar to French, but not quite the same, spoken in the South. Also called Provençal(though technically speaking Provençal is a dialec ofOccitan nowadays most people in France will use the term Provençal).

3) German: in Alsace, a province bordering with Germany, the speak mostly German.

4) Arabic: there are many immigrants from North-Africa, coming mainly from former French colonies such as Algeria and Marocco

Languages and Cultures
Improbable History

What is swine language?

The answer is difficult to provide as the question is unclear. Could you mean, "What is sign language?", which is the language the hearing impaired use with their hands to communicate without sound?

Or "What is wine language?", the terms used by oenophiles to describe the properties of the wine such as the "bouquet," the "legs," the "oakiness," etc.

On the lighter side for "What is swine language?", two answers come to mind:

  1. Pig Latin (Oo-day oo-yay eak-spay ig-pay atin-lay?)
  2. The language used in famous pig quotes: There is a language spoken by hogs and pigs which is not totally translated or understood yet, with words and sounds such as:
  • "oink"
  • "snort"
  • "squeal"
  • "wee wee wee" (all the way home)
  • "slurp" "burp" "gobble" (we do know those are sounds of a pig-out)
  • "yubadubadib ... Dat's all folks!"
  • "grunt"
  • "zroom zroom brrraaaaahhhhhhh" -- studies have recently indicated this loud utterance is from a special kind of swine (the "Harley Hog") and is roughly translated as "Eat my dust!".

Answer

Urdu, the national language of Pakistan, was created around the 1600's in Central Asia. The word 'Urdu' comes from the Turkish word 'ordu' meaning 'camp' or 'army'. It was used as a unifying communication tool between the Muslim soldiers during their conquest of Ancient India (including Countries east until Myanmar) and Eastern Persia.

These soldiers were of Persian, Arab, or Turkish descent. The majority of the soldiers, however, were of Persian origin. This directly affected the language to be used between them. The language of the government and that which dominated earlier on was Farsi, but eventually changed to Urdu to accommodate the other races. Despite the fact, Urdu vocabulary contains approximately 70% Farsi and the rest being a mix of Arabic and Turkish.

The grammar takes some elements from Farsi and Arabic but also has elements that are unique and different from all three of its mother tongues. In current times, however, many Urdu speakers have adopted many English and Hindi terms following the effects of globalization and the success of Bollywood, the Indian film industry, in Pakistan.
