Speech community is similar to other communities. The people who make up the community share a common language. Often they live side by side as they do in a neighborhood, a village, or a city. More often they form a whole country. Many nations are composed of a single major speech community, for example, Italy, Sweden and Japan. National boundaries are not always the same as the boundaries of speech communities. Some nations, for example, Russia and India are made up of many speech communities. Some speech communities are, for example, Arabic, Spanish and English extended across national boundaries. A speech community, then, is any group of people who speak the same language no matter where they happen to live. We may so say that anyone who speaks English belongs to The English speech community. For convenience, we may classify the speakers in two groups: on e in which the speakers use English as their native language, the other in which the speakers learn English as a second language for the purpose of education, commerce and so on.
