Additional background on Galician
"Gallego" redirects here. For other uses, see Gallego (disambiguation).
Galician (Galician: galego) is a language of the Western Ibero-Romance branch, spoken in Galicia, an autonomous community with the constitutional status of "historic nationality", located in northwestern Spain. Galician is considered by some to be a different written norm for Galician-Portuguese, the other norm being Portuguese. Galician and Portuguese are separated by a dialect continuum - however, the written norm is substantially different.

In July 2003 the Galician government made many changes to the Galician language in order to preserve it.
