Exciting facts about the Latvian language

  1. In Latvian there are many words similar to Polish, such as man — cilvēks, people — ļaudis.
  2. It is believed that Latvian is best understood by those who speak German — it is based on Germanic language roots.
  3. The Latvian language is very short! A whole sentence can be replaced by a few short words (My name is Mirek — es mu Mirek), or for example, the use of case changes the word without prepositions (they differ only in the presence of vowels.
  4. The accent in Latvian words usually falls on the first syllable, so it is difficult to pronounce words correctly – especially when there are long vowels in the second/third syllable.
  5. The order of words in a sentence depends on which word carries the most meaning, and the inflection of words in word combinations also depends on this (especially if it consists of two nouns). For example, “fish chops” sounds like this – “zivjukotletes” (literally translated “chops belonging to fish”, not “chops from fish”).
