Spanish (Spanish: español or castellano) is a Romanish tung spoken as a first tung by 329 (or up to 400) thousand-thousand folk worldwide, and further spoken by about 100 thousand-thousand as a learned tung. It thus ranks as the 2th tung with the most first speakers, and the 3rd most spoken overall, only after Midrikish and English. Spanish is foremost spoken in Spain and Latin Americksland, with the greatest share of speakers living in Mexico. The Banded Folkdoms of Americksland and other non Spanish-speaking lands worldwide have seen a steep rise of Spanish-speaking folk, mostly as an outcome of inwandering.
