The Latgalian Language

The Latgalian language formed on the basis of the varieties of the Upper part of Latvia, belonging of the Baltic group of the Indo-European family of languages. A written version of Latgalian was created at the beginning of the 18th century.

In now days about 9% of residents of Latvia speak Latgalian, mainly in Latgale region and in Riga – the capital of Latvia.

In now days Latgalian officially isn’t a regional language and it’s not a separate language. It’s a historic variant of the Latvian language as it is said in Official Language Law of Republic of Latvia. The official language of the Republic of Latvia consists of Latvian literary language and Latgalian written language.
