General Information about the Latvian Language
Latvian belongs to the Eastern group of Baltic languages within the Indo-European language family. In its present form, Latvian is younger than Lithuanian, which is related to Latvian. There are many similarities to Latin, Greek, and Sanskrit in Latvian’s traditional folk songs and folkloric poetry. Many words have been borrowed from German, Swedish, Russian, and recently, English.
Due to Latvia’s entry into the European Union and the resulting translations of all the extensive legal texts, the shortcomings of Latvian vocabulary became crystal clear. Therefore, the language needs new words, which are being developed and approved by the government-ruled translation agency.
Latvian or Lettish uses the Roman alphabet. It’s a true inflecting language with noun declensions and no articles. Even foreign names are often declined in Latvian (in the nominative case, male –s or –is, and female –a or –e; names that end in –o are not declined). Names are also transcribed phonetically in Latvian (for example: Džordžs V. Bušs for George W. Bush, Viljams Šekspīrs for William Shakespeare).
