The Romance languages (sometimes called the Romanic languages , Latin languages , or Neo-Latin languages ) are the modern languages that evolved from Vulgar Latin between the sixth and ninth centuries and that thus form a branch of the Italic languages within the Indo-European language family .

Today, around 800 million people are native speakers worldwide, mainly in Europe , Africa and the Americas , but also elsewhere. Additionally, the major Romance languages have many non-native speakers and are in widespread use as lingua francas . [2] This is especially the case for French, which is in widespread use throughout Central and West Africa , Madagascar , Mauritius and the Maghreb .

The five most widely spoken Romance languages by number of native speakers are Spanish (470 million), Portuguese (250 million), French (150 million), Italian (60 million), and Romanian (25 million). [3]

Because of the difficulty of imposing boundaries on a continuum, various counts of the modern Romance languages are given; for example, Dalby lists 23 based on mutual intelligibility . [4] The following, more extensive list [ citation needed ] , includes 35 current, living languages, and one recently extinct language, Dalmatian :

Romance languages are the continuation of Vulgar Latin , the popular and colloquial sociolect of Latin spoken by soldiers , settlers, and merchants of the Roman Empire , as distinguished from the classical form of the language spoken by the Roman upper classes, the form in which the language was generally written. [5] Between 350 BC and 150 AD, the expansion of the Empire , together with its administrative and educational policies, made Latin the dominant native language in continental Western Europe. Latin also exerted a strong influence in southeastern Britain , the Roman province of Africa , western Germany , Pannonia and the Balkans north of the Jireček Line .

During the Empire's decline, and after its fragmentation and collapse in the fifth century, varieties of Latin began to diverge within each local area at an accelerated rate and eventually evolved into a continuum of recognizably different typologies. The colonial empires established by Portugal , Spain , and France from the fifteenth century onward spread their languages to the other continents to such an extent that about two-thirds of all Romance language speakers today live outside Europe.
