Slovenian language (slovenski jezik, slovenščina) is a South Slavic language spoken by approximately 2.4 million speakers worldwide, the majority of whom live in Slovenia. Slovene is one of 23 official and working languages of the European Union.
Standard Slovene is the national language that evolved from the Central Slovene dialects in the 18th century and consolidated itself through the 19th and 20th century.
While distinct regional varieties descended from the older rural dialects still exist, the spoken and written language is uniform and standardized.
The distinctive characteristics of Slovene are dual grammatical number and two accentual norms, one characterized by pitch accent. The basic word order of Slovene is Subject Verb Object. Slovene has a T-V distinction: second-person plural forms can be used for individuals as a sign of respect.
