A National language was the language given special status by a nation, usually the language spoken by most members of that nation.

English as a national languageEdit

In the United States, English was proposed as a national language by the Congress.

The Bartlet Administration was against legislation that would make English the national language. In 2000, Steve Onorato, furious about the President's recent FEC appointments, stated that a bill proposing the national language would be the first among many bills passed by the Senate in retaliation for the embarrassment of the appointments.
