Guaraní language overview

 

Guaraní

 

Guaraní is a South American indigenous language of the Tupí-Guarani language family. Around 4.8 million people speak Guaraní, making it one of the most spoken indigenous languages of South America.

Guaraní is spoken by most people in Paraguay (where it is one of the two official languages), and in communities in Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina.

The case of Guaraní is unusual in that this indigenous language was adopted by European settlers and their descendants, whereas in most other cases the indigenous people (and mixed race people or Mestizos) adopted Spanish or Portuguese.
