Japanese is the national language of Japan and has around 125 million speakers. There is only sparse information available about the early roots of the language, but distinct eras from Old Japanese to the modern language are clearly defined. Even though Japan is a small country, many different dialects of the language exist to this day.
The older versions of the language were influenced by Chinese whereas the more recent and modern versions have taken loan words from European languages and English.
