The French Language
Over 25 countries worldwide consider French their official language. In addition, many say that over 200 million people speak it fluently. In every country from Corsica to Vietnam, countless residents know French. The first known written French document dates back to 842. Many historians debate over the possibility of this text is another form of Latin but must hold that it is a dialect of french. More texts that historians trace to the 9th Century exist and, by the 12th Century, they wrote epics in the language.
Countless dialects like Francien, which comes from Belgium, exist. Francien really took off in the 16th Century and standard French took form. The various municipalities began to push for the strict use of standard French. As recently as 300 years ago French linguists would continue to work on the language, largely to make it more official. The main divisions in terms of dialect exist as a result of geographical separation. Because so many different countries contained French speakers, variations in dialect formed. Any interpreter or translator working with French must be aware of the numerous dialects.
The use of greatly differing levels of sound sets French apart. Its grammar functions as a simplified version of Latin, in which nouns do not take the case into account, and gender only manifests itself in adjectives. As French caught up to already developed languages, it undertook many of their elements. Because of this, it includes elements of German and many other languages. The frequent use of diphthongs and strict grammar rules were adapted from other peoples.
When it comes to lingual services, you can’t afford mistakes. These communications can have huge effects on the legal, physical, and security of your life. For this reason, you need to find someone you can trust. CIT takes care of that for you. Taking on the task of reaching out to hundreds of linguists in the hope of finding a qualified one can prove futile.
