Title A Brief History of Spanish
Contribution Type Single author
Journal TypeAnother Country
Details Beginning in the third century BCE, the Romans conquered the Iberian peninsula. This period gave rise to several regional languages in the area that's now Spain, including Castilian, Catalan, and Galician. One of these would become Spanish— but not for another 1,500 years. Those years tell the origin story of what's become a global modern language. Ilan Stavans traces the evolution of Spanish.
