Speaking Russian is illegal over there?

Over here you hardly hear English. There's so many Chinese, Indians, Arabs etc. over here now.

no they want to legalize russian as second official language in latvia

e.g. street names in russian, in passports you will see your name in both languages, in schools you need to learn russian language (previously you could choose between german and russian),....

lol Vertigo and FF. It is illegal as official language, which means you can't make official streets signs in Russian, passports in Russian etc.. Ofcourse you can speak it, but you can't use it as official language. So all official paperwork has to be filled in the legale language(s), not in any other 'illegal' language.

The most common process leading to language death is one in which a community of speakers of one language becomes bilingual in another language, and gradually shifts allegiance to the second language until they cease to use their original (or heritage) language. This is a process of assimilation which may be voluntary or may be forced upon a population. Speakers of some languages, particularly regional or minority languages, may decide to abandon them based on economic or utilitarian grounds, in favour of languages regarded as having greater utility or prestige. This process is gradual and can occur from either bottom-to-top or top-to-bottom.


anyway, linguists think that when less than 4 millions people speak a language , it gonna die by itslef. (Latvia population-2010 estimate   2,245,357[1] (143rd))
So , it's sad , but it seems that it's a lost battle :(

thats not really true, they got enough signs for voting to be made, not won the voting.
thats a HUGE difference.

still its a horrible argument "Russia is the best" that they say.
then move to russia, or stfu

and really all this is is just a government decoy to talk and make fuss about unsolvable problems instead of fighting against crysis and solving real problems.

Well the Polish language is pretty strong because you don't speak other languages.. so there's few influence of other languages.
