Latvian (also known as Lettish) is chiefly spoken in Latvia. Latvia is a Baltic state in Europe bordered by Estonia, Lithuania and Russia. The official languages are Latvian and Russian. Latvian is also spoken by Latvian communities who have settled around the world especially in the former Soviet Union lands, the USA, and Australia. Latvian is spoken by approximately 1,500,000 people and is related to Lithuanian, but is not related to Estonian.
The current Latvian orthography was adopted in 1922 using the Roman script modified by diacritics.
