History of Spanish - The language
known today as Spanish is derived from
a dialect of spoken Latin that evolved in
the north-central part of the Iberian
Peninsula after the fall of the Western
Roman Empire in the fifth century. A
written standard was developed in the
cities of Toledo (13th to 16th centuries)
and Madrid (from the 1560s). Over the
past 1,000 years, the language expanded
south to the Mediterranean Sea, and was
later transferred to the Spanish colonial
empire, most notably to the Americas.
Today it is the official language of 21
countries and of numerous international
organizations. It is also one of the six
official languages of the United Nations.
