About the Samoan language:
Samoan is a Polynesian language, with an estimated 500,000 speakers. The Samoan language has its origins in the Samoan Islands, an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean. The Samoan Islands are divided between the country of Samoa and the smaller adjacent US territory of American Samoa. Samoan remains the prominent language of both territories as well as the co-official language along with English. Even though the Samoan Islands are a considerable physical distance from their nearest neighbors, Samoan language retains considerable linguistic similarities with languages such as Tongan and Cook Islands Māori, which are also Polynesian languages. Many Samoan have moved to New Zealand, the United States and Australia, and up to half of all Samoan speakers live in these countries. There is a considerable difference between informal everyday speech in Samoan language, and the formal language used for ceremonial purposes and for communication with elders and people of higher rank.
