A short history of the Mexican Spanish language
Mexican Spanish is the version of the Spanish language that evolved, and is spoken, in Mexico.
When the Spanish colonised Mexico from the early 16th century onwards, they brought their language with them. Mexico, fertile and rich in minerals, soon became one of the most important colonies in the Spanish Empire, and was settled by large numbers of Spanish people.
The country was ruled directly from Spain, and as Christianity spread so did the Spanish language, slowly beginning to replace the native Mexican languages. In 1570 King Philip II decreed that the Aztec Nahuati language should be the official language of New Spain, but in 1696 this ruling was reversed by Charles II, who pronounced that only Spanish should be used throughout the Empire.
At the turn of the 20th century, 38% of Mexicans still spoke an indigenous language, but today the figure is only 6%. Read more
Which countries have Mexican Spanish as a national language?
Spanish has never been legally recognised as the official language of Mexico, although it spoken by the majority of Mexicans. In 2003 the Mexican Congress recognised the indigenous Mexican languages as national languages, with the same validity as Spanish.
How many people speak Mexican Spanish as their first language?
It is estimated that around 115 million Mexicans speak Mexican Spanish as their first language, making it the country with the highest number of Spanish speakers in Latin America.
Did you know…
- After Spanish, the most widely spoken language in Mexico is Nahuati. This is actually a group of related dialects, spoken mainly in central rural areas by around 1.5 million people.
- Mexico has 63 indigenous languages, which makes it one of the most diverse countries in the world. Some of these are severely endangered – for example Awakateko is currently spoken by just a handful of people in the whole of Mexico.
- There are several Mexican Spanish dialects, but the best known are the variations of Central Mexico. This is because Mexico City produces most of the international media output. So most dubbing referred to as Mexican Spanish – and even Latin American Spanish – uses the Central Mexican dialect.
The Mexican economy
Mexico’s export-driven, free market economy is the 14th largest in the world in nominal terms, and the 10th largest by purchasing power parity. It is the second largest economy in Latin America (after Brazil).
More than 90% of trade is carried out under free trade agreements with more than 40 countries, including the European Union, Japan, Israel, and other Latin American countries. Under the North American Free Trade Agreement, around 90% of Mexico’s exports and 55% of its imports are traded with the United States and Canada.
In 2013 Mexico formed the Pacific Alliance with Peru, Colombia and Chile.
