The worldwide population of Dutch speakers is 23 million people (Ethnologue). The word ‘Dutch’ comes from the old Germanic word Theodisk that referred to the language spoken by the people as opposed to the official Latin. Theodisk became Deutsch in modern German. In Dutch, Theodisk became two different words: Duits, meaning ‘German’, and diets, meaning ‘Dutch’, a term no longer used. Today, Theodisk survives as Tedesco, the Italian word for ‘German’. Prior to Holland’s becoming an independent country in 1550, the English word Dutch was used to refer to any Germanic language. To this day, descendants of German settlers in south-eastern Pennsylvania are known as the Pennsylvania Dutch. Dutch belongs to the west Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family spoken by 16.4 million people in the Netherlands (Holland) and in the northern half of Belgium (Flanders, including Belgium’s capital Brussels).
