Title: Podlachian language
Post by: mike on September 18, 2009, 06:42:49 AM
Podlachian language is a new written East Slavic language, Podlachian, which is spoken in several dialectal forms by some 50,000 people in the eastern region of Poland called Podlachia (and perhaps by as many as 500,000 people in Belarus and Ukraine, but this number needs to be confirmed yet). Up to now, these people have been deemed to speak a peripheral variety of either Belarusian or Ukrainian, depending on their ethnic identification. It is however, believed that their dialects belong to a distinct language, which should be given a consistent written form and determined support.

świetne :) czyta się bardzo przyjemnie i bez trudu można wszystko zrozumieć. Pamiętam jak pierwszy raz usłyszałem rusiński byłem zdziwiony bo jest dużo bliższy polskiemu niż ukraiński a przy znajomości serbskiego mogłem bez trudu wszystko zrozumieć. Pytanie czy to już język czy jeszcze dialekt?

Ja to uważam za dialekt mieszany białorusko-ukraiński. Maksymiuk za pełnoprawny język. Obiektywnie nie określi tego raczej nikt.

Zdajesz sobie sprawę, że akurat nie o rusiński mi chodzi?

tak, ja bardzo lubię takie bogactwo etniczne. Czy to język czy tylko dialekt winno być pielęgnowane.
