What are the varieties of Italian?
Italian, besides being the official and national language of Italy, is also an official language of Switzerland, San Marino, the Vatican City and Istria. It is spoken by over 85 million people globally.
The standard Italian used today is based on the Tuscan dialect which was adopted as the official language in the 19th century. There are many dialects of Italian, but not all of them are mutually intelligible. In fact, all the varieties were developed independently from Latin. Although some of the varieties are called dialects, they are essentially different languages.
Did you know?
Italian is one of Top 10 languages spoken in Australia. Italo-Australian is an Italian dialect developing in Australia which is spoken by Australians of Italian descent.
Italian is considered the universal language of music, especially classic music. Some familiar Italian loanwords in English are cappella, orchestra and soprano. For a musician or music lover, learning some Italian is indeed necessary!
Dante, an Italian writer, is often referred to as the “Father of the Italian language”. Dante’s epic poem “The Divine Comedy”, which was written in the Tuscan dialect in the late Middle Ages, left an ineradicable mark on the Italian language and helped position Tuscan dialect as the basis for the Italian used today.
