Characteristics of the Basque Language

Basque is mainly spoken in the Basque Country, which describes a region on both sides of the Pyrenees, but there are also a lot of Basque speakers elsewhere in Europe. The ethnonym for the language is Euskara, from which the Basques coined the name Euskaldunak to refer to themselves. It is known as the oldest living language in Europe and does not appear to have any linguistic relations to other European languages.

There are five dialects in the Modern Basque language, which are divided into eleven subdialects. This can make cross-dialect communication quite difficult. The Biscayan or the “West” dialect is said to be the most widely spoken one, with a number of approximately 300,000 speakers.

The phonetics of the Basque language is comparable to that of the Spanish language. Stress and sound are in general not as distinctive as in other languages. The alphabet of this language contains five pure vowels (a, e, i, o, u) and two sets of consonants, of which one is voiced (like b, d, g) and the other one is voiceless (like p, k, t). The nasal sounds are m, n and ñ. As well as the phonetics, the orthography, which was first promulgated in 1964, complies with the Spanish norm.

Brief history of the Basque Language

Many linguists and historians are still disunited over the origins of the language.  Since it is said to be the last remaining descendant of the pre-Indo-European languages and it shows no relations to any other languages, it is not reconstructible with the method of comparison. Due to several findings of drawings in ancient caves it is believed to be the direct descendant of the language that the cave dwellers of Altamira, Ekain and Lascaux have spoken.

Basque has been spoken over a much wider territory, which with time became smaller due to invasions by Celts, Romans, etc. For example, in the Middle Ages written Basque was diminished by Latin. Many different factors led to the decrease of Basque speakers, such as the evolvement of Romance languages surrounding the main Basque area. From 1939 to 1975, the Spanish dictator Francisco Franco even forbade other languages that were not Spanish – including Basque.

Since 1979, Basque (next to Spanish) has been the official language of the Basque Country and since 1982 it has been the official language of one part of Navarre.
