Czech language

Czech (Čeština) belongs to the West Slavic group of the Indo-European language family. It is spoken by some 9.2 million people in the Czech Republic. We find Czech expatriate communities in Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Israel, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine and United States.

The world's population of Czech speakers is estimated at about 9.5 million. The Czech language is similar to the Slovak language. In fact, Czech and Slovak speakers often understand each other.

Dialects of Czech

Czech has a number of mutually understandable dialects:

  • Central Bohemian
  • Czech-Moravian
  • Hanak
  • Lach
  • Northeast Bohemian
  • Southwest Bohemian

There is a growing mutual influence between literary Czech and common Czech, so the main differences that remain between the two varieties have to do with pronunciation and morphology (internal structure of words), rather than with syntax and vocabulary.

Who speaks Czech?

Czech is the official language of the Czech Republic. The Prague dialect, the country's capital, is the basis of standard Czech. Standard Czech is the language used by the administration, the academic system, the media and publishing houses. It is used along with common Czech, the language spoken colloquially.
