Swedish belongs to the East Scandinavian group of languages, subdivided from the North Germanic branch of the Germanic languages, a descendant of Old Norse. There are two more Scandinavian languages that Swedish language interfere with, those are Norwegian and Danish. Swedish language is spoken by nine million people who found their homes mainly in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark and Estonia. Sweden is an official language in Sweden and Finland, as well as in a small region of Estonia - Noarootsi. If we look at the chronology of the evolution of Swedish language, we can distinguish three phases: Old Swedish, New Swedish and Modern Swedish. The language that was spoken on the territory of Medieval Sweden refers to the Old Swedish. The law code Västgötalagen, written around 1250 considers to be the most relevant example of that period. - Gustav Vasa's Bible is one of the first documents written in New (literary) Swedish and dates back to the 16th century. - Since then Swedish language has gone through various changes and, under the influence of writers and intellectuals, as well as due to the industrial development and internationalization, it has developed into becoming Modern Swedish, the language spoken by the Swedes today. The official language of Sweden is "Rikssvenska" (or Standard Swedish). Media, Royal family, administration use Standard Swedish and it was also created considering the dialects spoken around Stockholm. The Swedish alphabet consists of 29 letters, 26 of which are of Latin origin and three specific letters : , , . Its vocabulary is predominantly of Germanic origin. German, English and French borrowings are common in Swedish and became a solid part of the modern language. There are many similarities amongst both Swedish syntax and morphology that refer to Germanic languages. There are five conjugations for Swedish verbs; nouns are more inflected by the number and divided into five declensions; indefinite and definite cases; adjectives agree with noun and pronouns; cardinal and ordinal numbers etc. No matter how difficult it might look, Swedish proves to be as easy language to learn for those whose first or second language is English or German and of course for the neighbor countries of Sweden.
