It is an official language
in this US State, and if somebody writes you a check in it while you're here, you better know your numbers
. Although its usage fell after a sharp decrease in the native speakers' population and a later 'ban'
, (not really)
in the late 19th century, it is now making a comeback. Wikipedia gets its name
from the language. Sadly, though there are almost 4 million Wikipedia articles, a scant 27
of them are written in it. Of course, if you just need a dictionary, it's not hard to find
