Polish is everywhere
Polish is spoken by more than 40 million people, mostly in Poland, where Polish is, of course, the official language. It’s spoken in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Romania, and Ukraine as a minority language. In Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, USA, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand, Polish is spoken as a language of the diaspora. Nowadays, you can hear Polish practically everywhere on Earth, as the Poles are known for moving to other countries for work.
As a member of the Indo-European language family, Polish is a Slavic language, more specifically a West Slavic language and together with Polabian, Pomeranian, Kashubian, Silesian, and North Slovenian it belongs to the Lechitic group of Slavic languages.
A language without major changes
In the 10th century, all West Slavic languages were almost identical, and, up to the 14th century, the Poles, Slovaks, and Czechs could understand each other perfectly. It was only after this period that the said languages started to change.
For example, Polish took some loanwords from German, Latin, and French. According to available sources, Polish is known to have gone through no major changes compared to the previous period.
Polish has 7 different dialects – Greater Polish, Lesser Polish, Masovian, Kashubian, and the new mixed dialects – the Northern Kresy and the Southern Kresy dialects. Polish uses the Latin alphabet with 32 letters. There are no long vowels and the next-to-last syllable is always stressed. There are also 7 cases in Polish.
And as the icing on the cake, here is a Polish tongue-twister: „Król Karol kupił królowej Karolinie korale koloru koralowego.“ This funny sounding sentence means: “King Charles bought coral colour beads for Queen Caroline.”
