Gujarati Language Statistics/Facts:

India, like no other country, has a tremendous number of languages that are spoken in its territory. India’s latest census registered more than 1600 languages, with 15 added to special appendixes of its constitution. Gujarati is included in the list of 23 official Indian languages.

Gujarati is an Indo-Aryan language that is spread mostly throughout the Indian state of Gujarat. There are about 45 million people who speak Gujarati. Scanty minorities that are also able to understand Gujarati can be found in Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Fiji, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Great Britain, USA and some others.

Grammatically Gujarati resembles Hindi and Punjabi. Gujarati’s standard order of words within a sentence is Subject – Object – Verb. Expressions and sentences in Gujarati are built with the help of suffixes.

Gujarati, as many of the other languages of Northern and Central India, originates in Sanskrit. Structurally Gujarati falls between Hindi and Marathi. Most of Gujarati’s vocabulary is based on Sanskrit. However, due to the prolonged presence of Muslims in the West India, a lot of Arabic and Persian words appear in Gujarati. With the lapse of time, most borrowed vocabulary has been adjusted to Gujarati and changed not only grammatically but also phonetically. Recent vocabulary borrowed from English has not faced a lot of grammar modifications, taking into account its quite young age. Gujarati also contains some Portuguese vocabulary.

The Gujarati writing system is graphically based and is closely connected with the peculiarities of the Devanagari language. The most prominent distinguisher between Gujarati and Devanagari is the lack of a horizontal top hyphen.

Gujarati Dialects:

Gujarati has numerous dialects, including social ones. The most significant of them are the dialects of Muslims, Hindu and Parsi. Dialects of Muslims and Parsi contain a lot of Persian and Arabic words.

Gujarati History

There are three historic forms of Gujarati. The first one is Ancient Gujarati (about 1100 – 1500), which is considered to be an ancestor of the modern Gujarati and Raja languages. The second form is Middle Gujarati (about 1500 – 1800), which separated from Raja modifying phonetics and grammar. The last form is Modern Gujarati (from 1800 up until now), which is characterized by slight grammatical changes.

Since the second part of 19th century, Gujarati was a literary language. The foundation of modern literary Gujarati started in the middle of 19th century. The beginning of ancient literary tradition of Gujarati took place in the 15th century under the influence of the religious poetry of Narsinh Mehta.
