There are four officially recognised languages in Switzerland. In fact, Switzerland has the unique position of being the only country in the world where every citizen has at least three officially recognised languages at their disposal.
Switzerland has four official main languages – Swiss in three forms French, German, and Italian (all of which have different dialects or calques that are transcribed when written), and Romansh, which is a descendant of the spoken Latin used in the Roman Empire. German-French is also commonly used in Switzerland but is not recognised as an official tongue.
It’s hard to imagine a country with four official tongues, but Switzerland has exactly that. This is because the Swiss Cantons (or states) have the authority to adopt their own official language independently. The particular one used by each canton represents both the geographical and cultural boundaries of Switzerland.
Swiss German is the official tongue of Zurich—while Swiss French is the official one of the Republic and Canton of Geneva. Fribourg, Valais, and Bern share joint main languages of Swiss French and Swiss German. Graubünden has three official languages: Swiss German, Swiss Italian, and Romansh.
While Swiss French shares lexical elements with Quebec French and Belgian French, which are distinct from the standard French vocabulary. Here the counting system is different from standard French, and different words are used for mealtimes—the Swiss French for ‘breakfast’, for instance, is dejeuner, which in standard French means ‘lunch’.
Standard Italian and Swiss-Italian share many similarities, but there are unmistakably noticeable differences between the two. The Swiss tend to speak more formally, which is influenced by Swiss German, and use a lot of words from other Swiss dialects. For example, the Swiss Italian for ‘driving licence’ is licenza di condurre, with condurre borrowed from the French.
Switzerland is a multilingual country, with French, German and Italian the main languages.
