During the 10th century, the Italian language started appearing in written documents in the form of the short text and notes. For quite a while there was no standard parameter written or spoken language in Italy. The first grammar of Italian was produced by Leon Battista Alberti and published in 1495.


Italian was adopted by the state after the Unification of Italy, having previously been a literary language based on Tuscan as spoken mostly by the upper class of Florentine society. Its development was also influenced by other Italian languages and to some minor extent, by the Germanic languages of the post-Roman invaders. The incorporation into Italian of learned words from its own ancestor language, Latin, is another form of lexical borrowing through the influence of written language, scientific terminology and the liturgical language of the Church.

Now these days Italian (Italiano) is the official language of Italy and mainly used in literature and media.Italian (Italian it-it) is considered one of the easiest languages for a native English speaker to learn. The grammar and sentence structure are different from English, but simpler. Because both languages have Latin roots, they also share thousands of cognates – words that sound the same and have the same meanings.
