Japanese, is the official language in Japan and Palau. It’s a language spoken by an estimated 130 people both in Japan and overseas. Outside Japan, the language is spoken by Japanese emigrant communities in Hawaii and California in the United States; Cairns, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney in Australia; and in Argentina, Peru, and Brazil in South America. It is also spoken by an elderly population in former Japanese colonies, such as the Philippines, regions of China, Taiwan, Korea, and some Pacific Islands. The language is hierarchical: different verbs refer to the person speaking, the person spoken to, and to people spoken about. It is also highly inflective: pitch and accent differentiate similar sounding words. Japanese owes its rich vocabulary to borrowing loanwords from other nations for centuries. Most of these loanwords are from China, with whom it has shared a history of about 1,500 years. Some are from Portugal because they traded with the Portuguese in the 16th century; and others are from the Netherlands because they traded with the Dutch in the 17th century. In addition, Japanese has also adopted many English words because of the increased interaction with the Western world after the second world war.
