Basque (/bæsk, bɑːsk/; euskara [eus̺ˈkaɾa]) is a language spoken in the Basque Country, a region that straddles the westernmost Pyrenees in adjacent parts of northern Spain and southwestern France. Linguistically, Basque is unrelated to the other languages of Europe and is a language isolate relative to any other known living language. The Basques are indigenous to, and primarily inhabit, the Basque Country. The Basque language is spoken by 28. 4% (751,500) of Basques in all territories. Of these, 93. 2% (700,300) are in the Spanish area of the Basque Country and the remaining 6. 8% (51,200) are in the French portion.
