Slovene – basic information
- Slovenščina is a member of the Slavic languages group (more specifically, it is a South Slavic language). It is descended from the proto-Slavic language through Old Church Slavonic. The oldest Slovene text, the Freising Manuscripts, date from the turn of the 10th century. Interestingly, this document is the oldest account of a Slavic language written in the Latin script. The literary standard began to develop in the second half of the 16th century. In the following centuries, due to the geopolitical situation, Slovene came under the influence of German and the Slavic languages, primarily Serbo-Croatian. At present, the Slovene language is regulated by the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
- Slovene is considered to be the most dialectally diversified Slavic language. The small territory of Slovenia is home to as many as 46 dialects, which form seven dialectal groups. Such diversification has resulted from intensive language contacts (the area of what is now Slovenia used to be settled by members of four language groups: Slavic, Germanic, Romance and Ugro-Finnic) and the geographic conditions (Alpine valleys and forested areas hampered communication between inhabitants of various regions). These days, Slovene dialects are mutually intelligible. The western dialects are rich in Italian borrowings while the eastern dialects contain German loanwords.
- Slovene is one of the EU’s official languages.

- Like all Slavic languages, Slovene is highly inflectional. There are four grammatical tenses: future, present, past and pluperfect. Nouns and adjectives are declined for six cases, three numbers and three genders.
- In addition to the singular and plural numbers, Slovene also features the dual number, regarded as a proto-Slavic relic, which is used to refer to two people or things. The dual number is marked on nouns, pronouns, adjectives and verbs.
- New words in Slovene are coined on native roots. Even though this language has borrowed a substantial number of English words, some international words have not been adopted, and native coinages are commonly employed, e.g. zgoščenka (Eng. CD) and računalnik (Eng. computer).
- The longest Slovene word is the 26-letter adjective dialektičnomaterialističen. It means dialectic-materialistic.
