French language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and History
The Indo-European family's French is a Romance language. Gallo-Romance, the Latin spoken in Gaul, and more specifically in Northern Gaul, originated from French. It was descended from the Roman Empire's Vulgar Latin, as were all Romance languages. French was affected by the native Celtic languages of Northern Roman Gaul, such as Gallia Belgica, and the post-Roman Frankish invaders' Frankish language. The other languages historically spoken in northern France and southern Belgium, which were mostly superseded by French, are their nearest relatives.
For the remarkably diverse parts of France, there are currently as many as 28 distinct accents or dialects. These include the dialects of Alsatian, Lorrain, Champenois, Picard, Normand, Breton, Tourangeau, Orléanais, Berrichon, Paris, Bourgogne, Marseille, Corsica, Lyon, Gascony, and Languedoc. Hearing all the nuances between how words are pronounced and how the language is used is daunting for someone who is not a fluent French speaker, but they are there. It is not just the grammar, but in the various regions several common words and phrases are used. The accents will make it difficult for a learner to hear and understand what is being said, so it can be extremely helpful to have a clear knowledge of the country's various French dialects, particularly if you are moving from one part to another in France. Metropolitan French (spoken in Paris and considered standard) is usually used by the Francophones of France, although some still use regional dialects or variations like Meridional French. Belgian French, Swiss French, and Italy's Aostan
French is present in Europe outside France. French is an official language in Canada together with English; Quebec French and Acadian French are the two major dialects of French in Canada, but also another dialect generally grouped as Canadian French, used as a second language by Anglophones speaking French, or by Francophones in Canada using another dialect. French was an official language in Lebanon until 1941, and Lebanese French or Levantine French is the dominant dialect spoken there.
