Engadinian and Sursilvanian, Both Dialects of Romansch, but extremely, extremly similar, It's the Swiss 4th Language ;) So we can just say Romansch.

Schweizerisch Deutsch, It's Swiss German, a dialect of German spoken in Switzerland. And Natural German.

Italiano (Just a Language I learnt from Mother)

English (Learned when I was oyung)

Japanese (4th Year this year)

Rothes, where does Romansch come from exactly (i.e. roots or origins)? I've always wondered about that. Is it only spoken in some cantons of Switzerland?

Hi their Caelestia.

Romansch is spoken in usually one particular canton, named Grison or Graubünden in the East of Switzerland. (If you here Yodeling remember Romansch People) It has been an official language of Switzerland since 1938.

I will give you an example :)

En il 19avel tschientaner hai dà grondas midadas socialas ed economicas. Quellas midadas han gì in effect negativ sin la lingua e cultura rumantscha. L’avertura da las regiuns alpinas, la mobilitad da la populaziun ed il svilup industrial e turistic han chaschunà ils davos tschient onns ina maschaida per part fitg ferma tranter la populaziun rumantscha e la populaziun d’autras linguas, surtut da lingua tudestga. Las midadas economicas (passagi d’ina economia primara ed in’economia principalmain terziara) han provocà ultra da quai in’emigraziun intensiva dals giuvens Rumantschs vers ils centers industrials ed administrativs da la Svizra tudestga.

It's one of the oldest languages to date, and is predominatly Latin, which was used when the Romans (hence Romansch) occupied Switzerland as it's teritory and named Switzerland Confoederatio Helvética. It's not spoken by many people now, Maybe around 80,000, Im not to sure on that one. Engadinian is more Italian Based, while Sursilvanian is more German Based.

thanks Rothes! :wavey:
I always wondered about Romansch since we learned in school that switzerland had 4 official languages (! Canada has enough trouble with two!). So it's closer to latin than other languages in that region. It must've been quite enriching to grow up amongst so many different languages.
