Official language - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article (369 words)
Officially recognized minority languages are often mistaken for official languages.
However, a language officially recognized by a state, taught in schools, and used in official communication is not necessarily an official language.
Official languages are sometimes not the same as the medium of instruction and so, the two are not interchangeable.
Official language at AllExperts (553 words)
Most typically, the official language will be in line with the language used by the principal nation or ethnic group within the state.
Some states, such as Sweden, Tuvalu, the United Kingdom, and the United States have no official language, although in most such cases there is a single de facto main language, as well as a range of government regulations and practices on which languages are expected to be used in various circumstances.
The official languages of some former colonies, typically French or English, are neither the national languages nor the most widely spoken language.
