Interesting facts about the Vietnamese language
Vietnamese (tiếng Việt) is a member of the Austro-Asian language family and belongs to the sub-branch of the Mon-Khmer languages. The largest other Mon-Khmer language is the Khmer spoken in Cambodia. In addition, there is a series of other smaller languages that are common in Myanmar, India, Laos, and Malaysia.
Vietnamese is not related to Chinese but around a third of Vietnamese vocabulary is made up of borrowed Chinese words and for centuries the language was written using adapted Chinese characters.
Today, Vietnamese is written using the Latin alphabet, which is supplemented with some diacritical marks because of the special features of the pronunciation. The writing of Vietnamese in Latin script was developed in the 17th century by European missionaries and was promoted from the beginning of French colonial rule. The Latin alphabet was retained after Vietnam won independence and is now established as the official writing system.
