Valencian (valencià [valensiˈa]) is the traditional and official name of the Catalan language in the Valencian Community.[3][4] There are dialectical differences from standard Catalan, and under the Valencian Statute of Autonomy, the Acadèmia Valenciana de la Llengua has been established as its regulator. It is frequently spoken of as a separate language, the llengua valenciana,[5] though opposition to the use of standard Catalan occurs primarily among those who do not regularly use the language.[6]

Valencian/Catalan, like the closely related Occitan, has a long literary tradition, especially Late Medieval and Renaissance. One of the most outstanding works of all Catalan and Valencian literature is the romance Tirant lo Blanch, written by the Valencian knight and poet Joanot Martorell.
