A Bit of History
The origins of written and literary language can be traced back to the 16th century when the first books in Latvian were published. It is reported that the first book was published in 1525 however it has not been found.
In the 17th century there were major terminology problems while describing nature, mechanics, because, apart from religion, terms in other fields were not developed yet. In the 19th century, the first novels were written in Latvian. In 1940, following the incorporation of the Republic of Latvia into the Soviet Union, the preconditions for the linguistic assimilation of the peoples of Latvia were rapidly developing.
The status of the official language disappeared, and the significance of the Latvian language was narrowed down. On 6 October 1988, a decision was made to grant Latvian the status of an official language. In addition, the State Language Law was adopted in 1999 which currently is in force. Today, the language is used in all areas of life.
