Spanish – a true world language
Some people consider Spanish dear to their heart, for others it’s just another Romanic language. Nonetheless, its great influence on culture or economy is undeniable. This is also supported by the fact that Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language after Mandarin Chinese.
Adding those who speak Spanish as their second language, you have an approximate number of 567 million speakers. There are even more Spanish speakers living in the USA than in Spain itself. Its popularity has been on the rise and the well-known phrase “Spanish is useful and worth learning” is still valid. But what do we really know about it?
Reconquest of the language
Like other Romanic languages, Spanish developed from Vulgar Latin. Many languages had been spoken in the territory of the present-day Spain and the situation became even more complicated after the Arabic invasion of the Iberian peninsula in the 8th century. That is how reconquista, i.e. reconquest of the territory, began and the Arabs were gradually driven out.
Arabic influence brought a lot of words of Arabic origin into modern Spanish, e.g. aceitunas – olives or naranja – orange, but thanks to reconquista the dominant Castilian dialect spread over the whole peninsula. It laid the basis for modern Spanish and the word castellano, i.e. Castilian is therefore used as a synonym of European Spanish.
Exerting international influence
An important decision, which helped to enforce the use of Castilian, was the foundation of the Toledo school of translators by Alfonso X and the subsequent translations of Hebrew and Arabic writings and documents into Castilian.
Spanish was later spread throughout the world thanks to prosperous trade and a strong navy, which enabled colonization of America at the beginning of the 16th century. This, of course, influenced the formation of more than a hundred Spanish dialects. Spanish dominates even in the present-day modern world of technologies – it is the third most frequently used language on the internet.
Pronunciation and unusual punctuation
Like other Romanic languages, Spanish uses articles in front of nouns, distinguishes formal and informal means of address, verbs are conjugated by means of suffixes and changes in verb forms, subjunctive mood expressing subjectivity of the plot, doubt, wishes and so on is also used.
However, Spanish grammar has its peculiarities. One of them is the use of punctuation marks. They are used not only at the end but also at the beginning of exclamatory sentences and questions – ¡Hola! ¿Cómo te llamas? (Hi! How are you?).
The Spanish alphabet comprises 26 letters plus the consonant ñ which is pronounced as the consonant n in English words new or canyon. Speaking of pronunciation, we must also mention the letters b and v. In standard Spanish, they are pronounced in the same way, almost like a “soft” b when lips are lightly touching.
