Latvian language (latviešu valoda) — is the official state language of Latvia. Alternative names include Lettish and Lettisch. There are about 1.5 million native Latvian speakers in Latvia and about 150,000 abroad.

Latvian is a Baltic language, closely related to Lithuanian; however, they are not mutually intelligible to each other.
Latvian first appeared in Western print in the mid-16th century with the reproduction of the Lord's Prayer in Latvian in Sebastian Münster's Cosmographia Universalis, in Roman script.

There are three dialects in Latvian: the Livonian dialect, Latgalian and the Middle dialect.

Latvian is an inflecting language with many analytical forms. There are two grammatical genders in Latvian (masculine and feminine) and two numbers, singular and plural.
Nouns decline into seven cases: nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, instrumental, locative, and vocative.
