The Sound of the Ladin Language (UDHR, Numbers & The Lord's Prayer)

  • Published on Jun 27, 2018
  • Special Thanks to Davide!!! :D

    Ladin is spoken by about 30,000 people in northern Italy in the Dolomite mountains in Trentino, South Tyrol and Belluno provinces. It is part of the Rhaeto-Romance branch of Romance languages and is closely related to Fruilian and Romansh.
    The Office for Ladin Language Planning (L Servisc à l'enciaria de laoré fora na forma de ladin) is developing a standard written form of Ladin (Ladin Dolomitan) for use across the Ladin-speaking region.
    Since the 1990s a number of laws have been passed which provide protection for the Ladin language and culture, and the language has official recognition in Trentino and South Tyrol, though not in Belluno. Ladin is taught in schools and appears on some street signs.

    As a native speaker of Portuguese, this is understandable.
    Apart from the 'commonest' latin source (vocabulary and structure), the phonemes have a good resemblance to those of my language.

    There are five diferent types of Ladin Language. And also the history about the Language would be interesting. I'm living in a ladin municipality. Nevertheless it's a nice video.

      Ahh ho capito : )
      io sono di Agordo.
      Una curiosità, ma Castelrotto è in maggioranza tedesca con alcune frazioni ladine o è tedesca e ci sono dei ladini sparsi per il paese?

    In my opinion there's another good example of artificial language that you can make a video about: Volapük ;)
