The Aragonese are an ethnic group or nation living in the historical region of Aragon, between the centre and the north-east of Spain. Their native Aragonese language, which might have been spoken in the whole of the Kingdom of Aragon in the Middle Ages, is nowadays a seriously endangered language, natively spoken only by a few thousands in some northern villages.
Most Aragonese (90% or more) speak the Spanish language in its northern form but with some regional traits, particularly in intonation and vocabulary. In the easternmost areas, La Franja, varieties of the Catalan language are spoken. The use of the native Aragonese language is decreasing and maybe dying out. Unlike in other Autonomous Communities of Spain, no law has officialized it yet.
