Poland is an eastern European country on the Baltic Sea. There are about 50 million people who are Polish speakers among which 38 million are in Poland. Polish is the official language in Poland and is also spoken in minorities in some countries, namely: United Kingdom, United States, Belarus, Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine. Polish is a member of the West Slavic language same as Czech and Slovak.
Greater Polish, Lesser Polish, Mazovian, and Silesian are the four dialects of the Polish language. Polish language is written in the Roman alphabet augmented by the use of diacritical marks. It is extremely rich phonetically, having 10 vowels and 35 consonants. In pronunciation the stress is normally placed on the penultimate syllable of a word. A distinctive feature is the preservation in spoken Polish of the nasal vowels which are no longer found in the other modern Slavic tongues. As in Czech, the nouns, pronouns, and adjectives have seven cases (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, vocative, instrumental, and locative).
