A Brief Introduction to the Main Languages of the World

English

English belongs to the West Germanic branch of the Germanic family of the Indo-European family. The Indo-European Language Family is the largest in the world, including more than ten languages, mainly distributed in Europe, America and Asia. Indo-European languages account for about one seventh of the world's population. Of all the languages, English is the closest to German, Dutch and Germanic in Scandinavia. English originated in Western Europe.

Nowadays, English has become the largest vocabulary and the most widely used language in the world. At the same time, it is also the language closest to human common language. According to the number of native speakers of English, English may be the third or fourth largest language in the world (370 million people are native speakers of English in the world at present, according to the 21st Century in May 1996), but it is the most widely used second language in the world, the number of which is second only to Chinese. As early as the Versailles Conference in 1919, English became the most important language in the field of diplomacy. English is the main working language of countless international organizations, from the International Olympic Committee to the United Nations.

Russian

Russian is the national language of the Russians, as well as the official language of the former Soviet Union and the present Russian Federation. It belongs to the Eastern Branch of the Slavic Language Group of the Indo-European Language Family. More than 140 million people use Russian as their mother tongue worldwide, while nearly 45 million people use it as a second language. Modern Russian is basically divided into two major dialect areas: the North Russian dialect area and the South Russian dialect area. In the middle of the two dialect areas, there are mixed * dialect areas. The standard language is based on the Moscow language in the * dialect area. It has forty-two phonemes, including six vowels (vowels) and thirty-six consonants (consonants). Consonants can be divided into clear, soft and hard phonemes, and vowels weaken in non-stressed syllables.

Japanese

There are many theories about the origin of Japanese. Many scholars believe that Japanese is close to Altaic languages such as Turkish and Mongolian in terms of syntax. Japanese is widely recognized for its similarity in syntax with Korean. There is also evidence that Japanese lexicon and vocabulary were prehistorically influenced by the Malay-Polynesian language to the south. Japan has a population of more than 120 million. Linguistically speaking, Japan is almost a single nation, with more than 99% of the population speaking the same language. This means that Japanese is the sixth largest language in the world. However, Japanese is rarely spoken outside Japan. Although Japanese and Chinese speak different languages, the writing system of Japanese comes from Chinese. * The translation company has rich experience in Japanese translation, mainly in the fields of petroleum, machinery and machinery.
