Latvian and Lithuanian are the only two languages belonging to the Baltic languages and are part of a special branch of the Indo-European family of languages. The rest of the languages have not been able to survive to this day. The two languages are very similar. Yet, there are also differences. Mostly, they are in the specifics of phonetics and vocabulary, and to a lesser extent in morphology.
Baltic languages are characterized by many archaisms, dating back to early Indo-European times and attracting the attention of linguists. This specificity also influences the translation costs into the Baltic languages.
History of the Baltic language group
The first written materials about Latvia date back to the 16th century. However, the modern literary Latvian language began to take shape even later – during the period of the 1st national revival in the second half of the 19th century. Today it is a rare language. It is used in the historical region called the Baltics, Latvia.
Among the distinctive features of the referred language group are the following:
- names are declined in six cases
- there are only two types of nouns
In general, the Baltic languages form one group, which occupies a middle position between the Slavic and Germanic languages, and has some features uniting both groups. The German vocabulary (especially the terms) created using the modified Latin alphabet, has been a great influence on the Latvian language.
