It is the 26th most spoken language in the world.

Gujarati Script is based on abugida* system rather than the alphabet system commonly used for European languages.

*abugida
A writing system, similar to a syllabary, in which each symbol represents a consonant with a particular vowel. The vowel is changed by modifying the base consonant symbol, so that all the forms that represent a given consonant plus each vowel resemble one other.
