Polish language and culture in a nutshell – a lexicon of cultural connotation

A – alphabet

In contrary to the most Slavic languages (East and South), Poland use the Latin alphabet – introduced together with Christianity in 966, when Polish prince Mieszko got married to a Czech princesses Dąbrawa.
Receiving Christianity from the Czech Kingdom Poland has been included to the Western Christian Church, while most of the Slaves belong to the Byzantium circle.
The Roman Church and the Latin alphabet was the door to the written heritage of the West European Culture. As Latin alphabet wasn’t sufficient to illustrate Polish phonetics, the diacritical signs have been introduced, like ą, ę (the nasal vowels) or a letter combination (such as: sz, cz, dź, dż, ch, like English sh, ch, th). Foreigners often complain about it, but the rules of using them are very regular, so it is easy to learn it, and it is conducive to know the pronunciation.

Despite belonging to the Roman circle, Poland hasn’t lost the contacts with the rest of the Slavic world. Especially the folk culture preserves the pre-Christian Slavic heredity. The echo of the ancient believes is still reflected in traditional folk rituals and magical practices.

I will be pleased to present you some disappearing remains of the old believes, symbols and behaviour as an alphabet of Polish thoughts. If you are interested, follow the blog. You are welcome to comment!

I am a linguist interested in discovering the image of the world hidden behind the words. The linguistic worldview shows the differences between languages. Words and ideas reflect the common memory of each particular society that perceives reality through its historical and cultural experience, habits, beliefs mirrored by the language. Each language contains its view of the world and it is fascinating to discover the differences in the meaning of words and contexts they are used. Apart from doing research, I run a Polish language school for foreigners – Academia Polonica. The results of my investigation in cultural linguistics are implemented in the programs for teaching Polish to foreigners in broad cultural contexts. I believe that a deeper view of Polish culture through history, customs, symbols will help to cross the cultural barriers and improve communication behind diversity. Became a friend of Poland! If you seek more knowledge about the issues given in the posts you can follow my publication on www.academia.edu.pl
