The Lithuanian Language

The Lithuanian language is also known as Lietuvskai, Lietuviu, Litauische, Litweski or Litovskiy. It is an East Baltic language and the closest language to Latvian. About 2.8 million people in Lithuania speak the language. Additionally, another 200,000 people in Estonia and Latvia speak the language. Lithuanian is the national language of Lithuania and has been since 1918. Lithuanian is also the oldest Indo-European language that is still spoken today. It falls under the Indo-European classification of languages. There are several dialects of the language, such as Highland Lithuanian, Dzuku, and Aukstaiciai.

The Lithuanian literary language came into existence in the 1500s. The Lord’s Prayer, which is a creed, and the Ave Maria, which is a prayer to the Virgin Mary used in Catholic prayers, were the first documents translated around the year 1525. This version of Lithuanian was used only for religious writings and is quite different than the Lithuanian spoken today. For example, the older Lithuanian has much longer forms of endings than the Lithuanian spoken today. It also has more cases and appears to be more influenced by Slavic languages.

In the 1800s, there were three known dialects. They were the Low Lithuanian, the East High Lithuanian dialect (used mainly for poetic purposes) and the West High Lithuanian dialect, which was used mainly on the border of East Prussia. Modern-day Lithuanian has a 32-letter alphabet written in Latin and is closes to the West High Lithuanian, which was founded by Jonas Jablonsis (1861-1930).
