    Latvian phrasebook
    Latvian is the official language in the Republic of Latvia, spoken natively by approximately 60% of the residents of
    Latvia, approximately 1,250,000 people. Worldwide it is estimated to be spoken by 1,504,880 people, a 2009
    estimate from Ethnologue. It is an Indo-European language that shares its own Baltic language group with
    Lithuanian, New Curonian, Old Prussian, and Semigallian. The Baltic languages show closest relationship with the
    Slavic languages, and are commonly reconstructed to have passed through common Proto-Balto-Slavic stage, during
    which numerous Common Balto-Slavic lexical, phonological, morphological and accentological isoglosses
    developed. It is a relatively new language, its first written accounts date to 1530 A.D.
    Written Latvian is based on the Latin alphabet and uses 33 letters: Aa, Āā, Bb, Cc, Čč, Dd, Ee, Ēē, Ff, Gg, Ģģ, Hh,
    Ii, Īī, Jj, Kk, Ķķ, Ll, Ļļ, Mm, Nn, Ņņ, Oo, Pp, Rr, Ss, Šš, Tt, Uu, Ūū, Vv, Zz, Žž.
