Catalan – basic information

  • The origins of Catalan, which is a Romance language, can be traced back to the 9th century AD, when it evolved from Vulgar Latin. Its literary tradition dates back to the 12th century. The Catalan national revival (La Renaixença) in the 19th century marked the rapid growth of the Catalan language and culture. However, during the Francoist dictatorship (1939-1975), the language was banned in public places. For more than 40 years, since Catalan was officially recognized, it has been continuously growing in prestige. The language now serves as an essential identity marker for Catalans.
  • The Catalan dialects are mutually intelligible and are divided into two major groups: Eastern Catalan and Western Catalan.
  • Catalan is regulated by the Barcelona-based Institute of Catalan Studies and the Valencian Academy of the Language.
