Vietnamese (or tiếng Việt, pronounced as [‘tɪən ‘vɪet]) is a part of the Austroasiatic language family, spoken natively by more than 70 million people in Vietnam and its overseas communities. The Vietnamese alphabet in use today is a Latin alphabet with additional diacritics for tones, and certain letters. A typical feature of Vietnamese is that the voice tone is employed to distinguish words with identical consonant and vowel sequences, and the word order is able to express and change the syntactic relations of words to each other.
