Mirandish is a tongue spoken in a few northeastern towns in Portugal, namely Miranda do Douro, Mogadouro and Vimioso, by about five thousand folks as a birth tongue. Fully there are fifteen thousand folks who speak it. For some time most folk believed Portugal was the only one-tongued land in Europe, but when they aknowledged Mirandish in 1998 that thought shifted.
Muitas lhénguas ténen proua de ls sous pergaminos antigos, de la lhiteratura screbida hai cientos d'anhos i de scritores hai muito afamados, hoije bandeiras dessas lhénguas. Mas outras hai que nun puoden tener proua de nada desso, cumo ye l causo de la lhéngua mirandesa.
Many tongues are proud of their olden scrolls, of the booklore written hundreds of years ago and well-known writers, today flags of those tongues. But others can't be proud of that, as is the standing of the Mirandish tongue.
