Lithuanian is considered one of the most archaic of the living Indo-European languages. It is one of two (another is Latvian) living Baltic family of languages, which is perhaps closest to the Slavic family. It is the official language of Lithuania, spoken by about 3.5 million native Lithuanians.
In older literature on Baltic languages, "Lithuanian" can sometimes refer to Baltic Languages in general.
