The Portuguese language – characteristics and spread

Portuguese is a Romance language and a member of the Indo-European family of languages; Portuguese is also an Ibero-Romance language alongside Spanish, Catalan and other languages on the Iberian peninsula. Portuguese is spoken by about 190 million native speakers, with an additional ten million that speak Portuguese as a second language.

Portuguese spread around the world in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries as Portugal was building an empire that mostly survived up to the year 1975, an empire encompassing Brazil, parts of Africa and Macau in China until 1999. As a result, Portuguese is still the official language in several independent states, and is also learned and spoken by many as a second language.

There are around twenty creoles predominantly based on Portuguese in addition to the standard language. Portuguese has become a major minority language in several countries of Western Europe and North America over the last few decades due to emigration from Portugal.
