Vietnamese is spoken in both North and South Vietnam by about 65 million people. Its linguistic affiliation is uncertain, and though it is sometimes thought to be distantly related to Chinese, this remains to be proven. Like Chinese, Vietnamese is a tonal language and it has borrowed nearly half of its vocabulary from the Chinese.

The Vietnamese alphabet was devised in the 17th century by Catholic missionaries. It contains a complex system of diacritical marks, some distinguishing certain vowel sounds, others indicating tone. As can be seen in the few lines below, a letter may often contain two diacritical marks.

Kim- Van-Kieu is the Vietnamese national poem. Written by Nguyen Du (1765-1820), it contains a total of 3,254 lines, of which only eight are cited above
