English to Ukrainian Translation
(українська мова) is a language of the East Slavic subgroup of the Slavic languages. It is the official state language of Ukraine. Ukrainian
is spoken by approximately 36 million people in the world. Most of the countries where it is spoken are ex-USSR where many Ukrainian
have migrated, Canada and the United States with large Ukrainian
is descended from the East Slavic, along with the Russian
and Belarusian, or White Russian, languages. These three East Slavic languages initially shared essential grammatical features which allowed them to use a shared writing system known as Church Slavonic or Old Church Slavonic. The first samples of written Ukrainian
appear in 12th century manuscripts. However due to centuries of political subordination, Ukraine lacked any form of formal written expression for many years.
The expansion of the British Empire and since World War II, the influence of the United States has spread English
throughout the globe. Because of that global spread, English
has developed a host of English
dialects and English-based creole languages and pidgins.
Two educated native dialects of English
have wide acceptance as standards in much of the world. One based on educated southern British and the other based on educated Midwestern American. The British typifies the Cambridge model, which is the standard for the teaching of English
to speakers of other languages in Europe, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent. The latter dialect, General American, which is spread over most of the United States and much of Canada, is more typically the model for the American continents and areas that have had either close association with the United States.
