Learn more about the Slovakian language
Slovak has been known as a dialect since the 10th century and as a written language since the 18th century.
Slovak is a West Slavic language spoken by about 5.6 million people in Slovakia and also in Canada, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Ukraine and the United States. Slovak is closely related to Czech, Polish and Sorbian.
Documents in Slovak began to appear in the 15th century. The literary standard of Slovak did not appear until the 19th century. Slovak literature flourished between 1918 and 1938 when the Slovak-speaking territory became part of Czechoslovakia, although not all Czechs recognized Slovak as a distinct language.
Since the disappearance of Czechoslovakia in 1993, Slovakia is an independent country and the Slovak and Czech languages have begun to drift apart, although their speakers continue to understand each other.
