Belarusian (or Belorussian) is the language of the Belarusian people and is mainly spoken in Belarus, though Belarusian speakers are also found in Russia, Ukraine and Poland. Prior to the end of the Soviet Union in 1992, the language was called 'Byelorussian' or 'Belorussian' (in accordance with the ethnicity and country names, having been transliterated from Russian). It belongs to the group of the East Slavic languages, and shares many grammatical and lexical features with other members of the group. It is very similar to Russian and Ukrainian. In 1999, roughly 3.686 million Belarus residents (36.7% of the population) claimed Belarusian as the language spoken at home, while approximately 6.984 million (85.6%) Belarus residents declared it their mother tongue. Overall, some estimates hold that there are over 9 million Belarusian speakers worldwide. The Belarusian alphabet uses the Cyrillic alphabet in the modern Belarusian form, which was established in 1918 and consists of 32 letters. The Glagolitic script had been used sporadically until the 11th or 12th century and Belarusian was also previously written in both the Belarusian Latin alphabet (created in the 19th century) and Belarusian Arabic alphabet. Standardized Belarusian grammar in its modern form was adopted in 1959, with minor changes in 1985.
