French was also influenced by native Celtic languages of Northern Roman Gaul like Gallia Belgica and by the (Germanic) Frankish language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders.

A major world language, French is an official language in 29 countries across multiple continents.

French is estimated to have about 76 million native speakers and about 235 million daily, fluent speakers.
