Guarani Language

Another highly showy phenomenon happens when the Jesuits leave the Missions. The logical thing had been that the natives remained to live in those enormous stone strengths, constructed in the Guarani mounts. The logical thing had even been that the natives will in this way adopt that type of constructions (of material) in the construction of their houses and that assumed a sedentary culture. Nevertheless, it did not happen thus. We can affirm that the conquest and the reduction lasted what the presence of the Jesuits lasted. With the going of the same, and the recovery of the freedom, the natives vindicated their old customs and returned to the mount and in this way they returned to nomadism. What happened with the Missions? , then, they became ruins (destroyed, worn down, useless, empty constructions). To the being reconstructed, at present they are not another thing that " sad memory and imborrable" of the oppression, of the repression, the submission and the slavery of the indigenous towns of Paraguay.

Today, five hundred years later, the Guarani language follows alive, strong, revitalized and so cool, spoken by almost eight million souls (Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela) and admired by the international community since – besides to also exist thousand of sites promote that it in Internet is studied in important universities of the world, becoming " attraction fatal" of numerous investigators of world-wide prestige. Today, after as much persecution and repression, already it is language of the Mercosur next to the Castilian and to the Portuguese. 87% on those who we lived in Paraguay, we spoke and we understand the Guarani. His creator the Native was reduced and conquered implacably by the Empire, almost he was even annihilated. Nevertheless, the Guarani Language remained alive and indomitable in spite of the most incredible forms of oppression and repression that suffered.
