•Junior Editor Quit en- SPANISH QUESTION: What's the difference between the Spanish and Mexican languages? ANSWER: The Spanish language came from the Roman Latin, somewhat modified by Arabic, when Arabs occupied parts of Spain. Spanish as spoken today is based on the language used in the ancient kingdom of Castile. But there are several secondary languages or dialects spoken today in Spain, especially Catalan, Galician and Basque — this last being a language all by itself. Remember that Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain were the rulers who, in 1492, financed Columbus on his historic trip to America. Columbus and, later, Spanish explorers claimed for Spain the lands which later became Mexico, Central America, Cuba, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. In 1519, the Spaniard Hernando Cortex landed ' in Mexico and by means of guns and horses terrified and subdued the Indian Aztecs who had built a remarkable civilization there. As Spain began its rule in this part of the world, Spanish became the official language. It is still spoken by most Mexicans — there is no such thing as an Official Mexican language apart from Spanish. However, in out-of-the-way places, the Indians often use their native languages and dialects. Mexico is a fascinating contrast between old and new — typified by our picture of a little burro laden down with home-made baskets, with a 'modern skyscraper soaring up in the background.
