The Aragonese (Aragonese and Spanish: aragoneses, Catalan: aragonesos) are the people self-identified with the historical region of Aragon, in inland northeastern Spain. Their Aragonese language, which might have been spoken in the whole of the Kingdom of Aragon, Kingdom of Navarre and La Rioja in the Middle Ages, is nowadays a seriously endangered language, natively spoken only by a few thousands in some northern towns.
Most Aragonese (90% or more) speak the Spanish language, traditionally in a northern variety with some regional traits, particularly in intonation and vocabulary. The use of the native Aragonese language is decreasing and maybe dying out. In the easternmost areas, La Franja, varieties of the Catalan language are spoken by about 90% of the Population.
