TV Channel Lineup by Language : Latvian

Latvian, the official language of the state of Latvia, sometimes called Lettish, is spoken by about 1.4 million native speakers living in Latvia and by about a 150,000 Latvians living abroad. Unlike other small languages, there is also a huge number of non-native speakers. This is because minority populations in Latvia like Poles, Ukrainians, Belarusian, and Russians, who came during the Soviet period from 1940 to 1991, discovered that fluency in the language offered numerous benefits. Since Latvian, as an official language, is prominent in the educational system and is the only language permitted in the public sector, fluency translated to better education, better professional careers, and better standards of living. It is estimated that about 30% of the 924,000 ethnic minorities are fluent in Latvian, and a broad proportion of these speakers are from the younger generation. Moreover, since Latvian plays such a major role in social success in Latvia, the number of speakers is steadily increasing. Latvian is part of the Baltic section of the Indo-European root language and has three dialects: Livonian, Latgalian, and Middle dialect. Latvian first appeared in print in a well-known book by Sebastian Munster called Cosmographia Universalis. Here it appeared as a Latvian version of the Lord’s Prayer.
