Trivia about Italian Language words

Do you think you have a good understanding of the Italian language? You can now prove it by taking the Ultimate Italian Language Trivia Quiz.

Though various dialects of Italian have been around for centuries, it wasn’t until Italy unified that a standard version of the language emerged. In 1861, only about 2.5% of Italy’s population could speak what is now known as standard Italian. Like other Romance languages (and English), Italian uses Roman characters. However, it contains five fewer letters than English: it lacks the letters j, k, w, x, and y. If you see these letters in an Italian text, it means the word has been borrowed from another language.
