The Slovene language (slovenski jezik, slovenščina) belongs to the western branch of the South Slavic languages. It is spoken by approximately 2 million speakers, most of whom live in Slovenia. The language is considered one of the most archaic languages. Along with Lusatian (otherwise known as Sorbian), Slovene is one of the only two literary Slavic languages to retain a dual numeral. The name of the language, both Slovene and Slovak, means “Slavonic” (cf. from Old Slavonic “словѣньскъ”).

The earliest written evidence of the formation of the Slovenian dialect is the Freising manuscripts, which were written between 972 and 1093 in the valley of the river Moell in Carinthia. It is the oldest surviving example of Slovene written language in Slovenia, written in the Latin alphabet (Carolingian minuscule). “The Brižin passages” are one of the oldest monuments not only of the Slovenian language, but of the Slavonic written language at all.

The Slovene literary language began to form in the 16th century, in the works of reformers such as Primož Trubar (1508-1586), Adam Bohoric (1520-1598) and Juri Dalmatin (1547-1589). The territories of what is now Slovenia once belonged to the Holy Roman Empire and later the Austrian Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In the latter, German was the language of the elite, while Slovene was spoken by ordinary people.

There are many Germanic forms in modern Slovene, which is partly due to the impact German has had on Slovene in the course of historic events. Many eminent Slovene scholars were writing in other languages before 1920, chiefly in German, which was the lingua franca at the time.

During the 18th century, the foundations of the literary language began to shift from the Dolene dialects to the north, towards Ljubljana, which was situated in a transition zone between the two dialect groups: Dolene and Gorenj. According to linguists, Dolenj consonantism and Gorenj vocalism can be observed in modern Slovenian.

Illyrianism and pan-Slavism have resulted in a number of loan words in Slovene from the Serbian, Czech and Russian languages.

Slovene literary language formation was completed in the 1850s. Catholic bishop Antonije Martin Slomšek had a major influence on the formation and development of literary Slovenian.

One of the theories about the origin of Slovenes is the Venetian Theory (venetska teorija), which is based on the denial of Slavonic settlement of the Eastern Alps in the 6th century and the assumption that the Venetians (proto-Slovenians) have inhabited the region since ancient times. This theory is seen as an alternative explanation for Slovenian ethnogenesis, but is not recognised officially.

Slovene has a dual numeral, which the Slovene people are rally proud of! In Russian only the singular and the plural remain, but in Slovene you can often hear: “The two of us (Mi dva sva)
