Vietnamese Language History

Vietnamese is part of the Vietic branch of the Austroasiatic language family. Vietnamese has the largest number of speakers out of all Austroasiatic languages, yet it has lost many features common to Austroasiatic language. This is due to its location in the Mainland Southeast Asia area, where it evolved similarities with neighbouring languages instead, such as tones as a phonemic feature. As Vietnamese has evolved it has also been influenced by Chinese, Cham and French.

Historically Vietnamese has been written using Chinese characters and the Chữ Nôm script which used a variant of Chinese characters with additional Vietnamese invented characters. However, the writing system for the modern Vietnamese alphabet is based on Latin script, using accents to signify tone.

Vietnamese is a Global Language

There are 1.5 million Vietnamese speakers in the United States of America making it their fifth most spoken language. There are also significant numbers of Vietnamese speakers in Australia where it is the seventh most spoken language. Most Vietnamese speaker in Europe live in France where it is the most spoken Asian language. In the Czech Republic where Vietnamese is an officially recognised minority language.
