The Aragonese (Aragonese and Spanish: aragoneses, Catalan: aragonesos) are a subgroup of Spaniards and the inhabitants 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 villages.

Most Aragonese (90% or more) speak the Spanish language in its northern form but 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.[2]
