What is Portuguese, anyway?

Though Portugal is a fairly small country, Portuguese is the seventh-most widely spoken native language in the world, thanks to Brazil. The famous Lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) countries are Portugal and Brazil, but the language also has significant communities of speakers in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Príncipe in Africa as well as Macau and East Timor in Asia.

Portuguese traces its roots back to Latin, making it a Romance language like French, Spanish, Italian, and Romanian. It developed alongside Spanish in the Iberian Peninsula but has maintained some of the influence of the original Celtic languages that dominated the area before the Romans. Thanks to their long coast, the Portuguese had significant opportunity to colonize other parts of the world, spreading the Portuguese language to three other continents. In the modern day, while the Portuguese in Lusophone countries does differ a bit, any Portuguese speaker can get by easily in any variant.
