Take note – story published 6 years ago

Latvian is a small language by international standards. As modernity and technological progress march onward, many words enter the language, with some becoming popular and others eschewed as artificial-sounding or otherwise unpalatable.

Mistranslations, misinterpretations and curiosities of all sorts roam free in every language, and Latvian is no exception. 

In this quiz, made for State Language Day celebrated on May 13th each year, you are invited to answer seven questions related to how the Latvian language accommodates new things.
