Official language

From MicroWiki, the micronational encyclopædia
Jump to: navigation, search

An official language is, generally speaking, a language in which all official business, particularly governmental functions, are required by law to be conducted. It is possible for a nation to have more than one official language nationwide, although it is rather rare to have more than two.

In micronations, this term may refer simply to the language(s) most often used by the people of a nations, regardless of its status in law. Although many micronations simply use their native language as an official language, some may also create a conlang to serve alongside it.
