Polish

Polish is an Indo-European language and a member of the West Slavonic group, spoken by c. 40 million people, mainly in Poland, where it is the official language, but also in the UK, USA, Australia and other countries as an important immigrant language. The closest linguistic affiliation is with Czech, Slovak, and Sorbian/Lusatian.

The earliest written traces of the language date from the 12th century, and modern literary language, based on the dialect of the Poznan area, started emerging in the 16th century. Polish literature has flourished in the 20th century.
