Latvian or Lettish is Latvia's official language. As a Baltic language, it's part of the Indo-European language family. The European Union recognizes it as one of its working languages. Most of Latvia's population use it as the primary language. There are over one million native Latvian speakers, and about 100,000 people abroad also speak the language.
Its grammar has a well-developed derivation. It has similarities to another Baltic language in a neighboring country, Lithuanian. Compared to Lithuanian, however, Latvian follows a rapid development. One reason is its diversity in terms of dialect. Notably, it features three dialects, namely Middle, Upper, and Livonian.
