Vietnamese Language

Vietnamese is spoken natively by about 90 million people. As a result of Vietnamese emigration, many Vietnamese speakers are outside Vietnam in other parts of Southeast Asia, as well as East Asia, North America, Europe, and Australia. 

Like many other languages in Southeast Asia and East Asia, Vietnamese is an analytic language with a phonemic tone.

Its vocabulary has been strongly influenced by Chinese, with significant borrowing from French as well.

Vietnamese was historically written using chữ Nôm, a script using Chinese characters and locally-invented characters.

French colonial rule led to the official adoption of the modern Vietnamese alphabet (chữ Quốc ngữ) which uses the Latin alphabet with diacritics for tones and pronunciation.
