French – The language of Romance

French is the official language of France and 29 countries of the world. There are several other countries of the world where French is spoken as a second language mostly in the Francophone regions (regions that were once occupied by the French Empire). It is estimated that 110 million native speakers of French and more than 190 million speak French as their second language. French is the fourth most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union.

History of French

French is mostly referred as the Language of Romance. This has nothing to do with Love. Languages of Romance are those that are derived from Vulgar Latin. The history of French Language is dated back to the period of Julius Caesar’s conquest from Rome (52-58 BC). Much of the modern day France spoke Celtic commonly referred to as Gauls and Belgae. The southern French region had many other regional languages home to different ethnic groups such as Iberians, Ligures and Greeks. French descended from Vulgar Latin, the vernacular Latin of the Roman Empire. The native languages were supplanted by the Latin of the invading Romans. Later on in the 5th century AD, A Germanic tribe known as the Franks began their invasion of Gaul, thus laid the foundation of French with addition of several Gaul and Germanic words in the Roman Latin. French owes much of its structure and vocabulary to Latin. During the 9th and 10th century AD the language spoken in the region today called France was much different than the Latin that was brought by the Romans. It is called the Old French and remained in the land until the 13th century AD. An example of the early French is the Oaths of Strasbourg dated 842 AD which were written pledges of allegiance between Louis the German and his half-brother Charles the Bald. The language used in this contract is distinctly French. There were many dialects of French, but the most prominent was Francien, a language spoken in Paris and its surrounding region. Because of the political and cultural importance of Paris, it became the standard form of the language. Middle French during the 14th and 16th century AD borrowed many words and phrases from Greek, Latin and Italian. It was during this era that a group of French poets commonly known as the ‘Pleiades’ encouraged the people to develop and improve their common language and literature. The modern period of French began in the 17th century AD with the establishment of the French Academy by Cardinal Richelieu to create an authority of the language and to serve as the ultimate judge of the modern French language. The modern French has been influenced by several movements such as realism and romanticism but the original structure of the language hasn’t changed much since the middle era.
