    What are the main features of the Latvian language ?

    Just out of curiosity...

      In Latvian, there are letters ā, ē, ī, ū, č, ž, ņ, ļ, ķ, ģ, š, diphtong O that sounds like UO. The accent is on the first vowel or diphtong (usually) but the accents aren't strong.

      Wow! 'Tu' is 'you', just like in the Romance languages!

      If I didn't know better, I'd say Latvian almost looks like an ancestor of the Romance and Slavic languages! It definitely feels much closer to Proto-Indo-European than other languages - just like its sibling language Lithuanian!
