Polish Information

Polish is predominantly spoken in Poland, and is spoken to a much lesser extent in Lithuania, Belarus and other Polish communities throughout the world ( the US., Canada, Germany, France, Australia, Ireland, and elsewhere.)

Language Facts

Polish, the official language of Poland, has the largest number of speakers of any West Slavic language. Polish-speakers use the language in a uniform manner through most of Poland, and it has a regular orthography. The language developed indigenously and retains many ancient Slavic features of pronunciation and grammar. Although non-Polish administrations in Poland sometimes attempted, historically, to suppress the Polish language, a rich literature has nonetheless developed over the centuries, and many works by Polish authors are available in translations in English and other languages.

Poland has one of the most linguistically homogeneous populations in Europe with regard to its native language; nearly 97% of Poland's citizens declare Polish as their mother tongue. As a result of World War II, Poland was forced to change its borders, which resulted in various migrations (World War II evacuation and expulsion, German expulsions, Operation Wisła) as well as in ethnic cleansing of the Poles across the current borders such as during the Massacres of Poles in Volhynia. Nevertheless, after the Second World War the previously Polish territories annexed by the Soviet Union retained a significant proportion of the Polish population unwilling or unable to undergo forced migration toward the post-1945 Poland. Even today ethnic Poles constitute large minorities in Lithuania, Belarus, and among the Poles in Ukraine. Polish is by far the most widely used minority language in Lithuania's Vilnius County, and it is also present in other counties.

Writing

Polish uses a modification of the Latin alphabet. The modifications include marks over letters looking like apostrophes (ń, ć, ś, ź), a point over 'z' (ż) and crossed letter 'l' [ł ] and 'ą', 'ę'. The font is a Central European font.

a is a low central vowel for which there is no symbol in the IPA

The i in ci, dzi, ni, si and zi is not pronounced when they are followed by another vowel, e.g. dzień

u sometimes = [w] in loanwords like auto [awtɔ] 'car'

ó is called o kreskowane

The letters q (ku), v (fau) and x (iks) are also used, but only for foreign names or words.
