Facts about the French Language

Before thinking of having your documents translated by our French translation specialists, why not discover a little about the language itself?

A Romance language, French originally descended from Vulgar (late spoken) Latin and evolved as a Gallo-Romance dialect.

A Romance language actually means ‘to speak like a Roman’ and sadly has little to do with romance!

Other languages influencing the French language are Greek and Italian with English having an enormous impact on French in the last two centuries.

The mother tongue of around 72 million people is French – which is also spoken as a second language by around 52 million people.

French is one of the official languages of 33 countries, including Belgium, Canada, the Congo, Haiti, Luxembourg, Madagascar and Monaco and one of six official languages of the United Nations.

After Paris, Kinshasa is the second-largest French-speaking city in the world.

French language

Established in 1635, the French Academy oversees the French language, deciding on which words – from foreign languages or otherwise – may be introduced to the language. The Academy is particularly strict about the introduction of English words.

There are more than 1 million words in the French vocabulary and 20,000 new words are adopted every year.

Like English, the general word order in French is Subject, Verb, Object. It has a masculine and feminine gender, which are applied to all nouns, including inanimate objects.
