The Slovenian language comes from the South Slavic group, part of the Indo-European family. While it has a relatively low number of speakers compared to other languages (2.5 million), Slovenian is officially spoken in Slovenia and has minorities in Italy, Austria, Croatia, Serbia and Hungary. Moreover, thanks to migrations at the beginning of the 20th century, it can be heard also in Ohio, Argentina, Canada, Australia and South Africa.
The oldest documents written in Slovenian date back to the late 10th century. These are the Freising manuscripts. These religious documents are among the most ancient surviving ones in all Slavic languages. They indicate that the language developed both in writing and speaking very early. Its dialects were the basis for Standard Slovenian and many of them are still present in the country nowadays. There are more than 40 dialects and sometimes people might not even understand each other, as reflected by the proverb “Every village has its own voice” (Vsaka vas ima svoj glas).
The Slovenian language, which preserved its characteristics such as the dual grammatical number that specifies two people or things in a sentence, has played an important role in the identity of the country and the nation. Slovenia was part of the Republic of Yugoslavia for most of the 20th century. In 1991 it became an independent state, separating from Yugoslavia.
Slovenia has been a member of the European Union since 2004 and Slovenian is one of the EU’s official languages. Slovenia and two of its neighbours, Italy and Hungary, form the Multinational Land Force (MLF), an EU Battlegroup for common defence.
