Spanish (language)

Spanish is a language that belongs to the Indo-European language family. In Spanish, words like Sabiduría are related to mental activity or other psychological processes. To transcribe the Spanish language from speech to writing, scripts (writing systems) like Latin are used.

For example, the sentence below utilizes both the Spanish language and Latin (Script) script:

Solo alabaré al maestro de la sabiduría.
I will only praise the master of wisdom.
