Lithuanian – the most widespread of the Baltic languages
Lithuania has only 2.8 million inhabitants, but it’s still the largest of the Baltic states. Lithuanian has the most speakers among the Baltic languages with almost 4 million.
It’s Lithuania’s official language and it’s used as a minority language in Poland and the USA. Apart from that, it’s spoken in small population groups in Latvia, Belarus, Sweden, Norway, Britain, and Germany, but also in Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and Australia.
Lithuanian belongs to the Indo-European language family, specifically to the Balto-Slavic group. The first Lithuanian textbook was published in 1620 and the first textbook of Lithuanian grammar three years later.
For linguists, Lithuanian is a very interesting language as it’s one of very few languages that has kept its archaic phonetics and morphology. On the other hand, foreigners see it as a difficult language.
Lithuanian has two dialects – Highland Lithuanian (Aukštaitian) and Lowland Lithuanian (Samogitian). Both are divided into three subdialects – the Aukštaitian dialect is subdivided into West, South and East, and the Samogitian dialect into West, North and South. Lithuanians use a Latin script consisting of 32 letters. Lithuanian is a synthetic language that uses three grammatical tenses – present, past and future. It has only two grammatical genders – masculine and feminine and 7 grammatical cases.
You will hardly find any profane words at all in a Lithuanian dictionary – one of the least pleasant Lithuanian words is toad. But don’t think that Lithuanians don’t swear at all! They help themselves to swear words from English or Russian.
