It’s not quite the same sound. Polish distinguishes /ʐ/ and /ʑ/; English /ʒ/ is somewhat between them.

0stsee wrote:What I still need to learn is the "ubezdźwięcznienie", which I guess means something like assimilation. :?:


It is one particular case of assimilation: making unvoiced.

dźwięk — sound
dźwięczny — voiced
bezdźwięczny — unvoiced
ubezdźwięcznić (rarely used) — to make unvoiced
ubezdźwięcznienie — making unvoiced

That's right. The 's' sound in measure is more how the letter ź is pronounced. Ż is 'harder' sounding I suppose. Is 'ż' a uniquely Polish sound? I've never come across it in any other languages. I wonder how it was created... :wink:

Just a question 0stsee, do you want to display Polish accents in your post? That's not to suggest you can't do what you're already doing because we'll understand you anyway but would you like to know how the accents are transposed into posts or are you fine the way you are?

Hej Jakc!

I'd like to. I don't have much problem using a "normal PC keyboard", but the Alt+... doesn't work on my laptop keyboard, unfortunately.

You have any good alternative?

No, it's not uniquely Polish. It is also found in Belorusian and Russian; it's unvoiced counterpart is an phoneme of many Indian languages. From a historical perspective, ż evolved in Slavic languages in Proto-Slavic times from a palatalised [g] (maybe via [dʒ]) - that process is called "first (regressive) palatalisation" in Slavic studies. (And as you probably know, the Slavic people didn't stop with that palatalisation. :))

Click on the "insert special characters" link left of the text typing box (right above the emoticons), select "Polish" and start typing. ;)
Of course it's a bit complicated, but much better than typing in unicode letters...

Russian and Belorussian? Really? I thought those were far too soft sounding for a letter like that! Well what d'ya know! :wink: Dziękuje Kuba! ;)

What do you mean? Polish palatalisation is extreme, i.e. it sounds softer by default.

You're right.
Is Polish the "softest" Slavic language?

It depends what do you mean. Polish palatal consonants might be quite soft, but in Russian they occur more often.

Polish vs. Russian

Postby 0stsee » 2008-07-02, 16:08

Hmmm.. somehow Polish sounds "softer" to me. Probably it also has to do with the intonation or general volume. :hmm:

I don’t know. For me Russian is softer, e.g. e always palatizes the previous consonant (except for a few consonants), and while ś, ź, ć, dź sound softer than their Russian counterparts, ль is softer than l, ч is softer than cz,рь is softer than rz, and Russian foreign words sometimes have и where Polish ones have y, e.g. демократическийdemokratyczny.

That may be true but for me Russian sounds very soft and malleable (fluffy, maybe? Everything rolls together when you say it). Maybe it's as Qrczak says, the frequency of palatalised consonants in Russian is much greater than in Polish. In any case I've always had the impression that Russian is a soft language. Though, I'm learning very different new things every day here. It's all very interesting! :wink: Thanks!

edit: Just looking at 0stsee last post. I figure I might mean ‘soft’ in a different context. For me, Russian has the same degree of ‘softnesś as French does in the west. It's the way in which the letters run together when you say them. I know that I'm always stumbling over ‘sz' and cz' and ‘rz' when I read because they're such different sounds to the letters that surround them. Last night I was reading the ‘Tygodnik Polski’ with my father and I tried to pronounce: ‘Wileńszczyzna and it sounds very jagged and uncomfortable to pronounce: ‘Wileń-sz-czy-zna. I suppose that's lack of practice though. Although languages such as Welsh (and French?) eliminate this sort of harshness with mutations, certain nouns change consonants to ease this jaggedness. But learning the mutations itself is a pain. :P There's no 'easy' way I suppose. Indonesian is brilliant though...

It's a very phonetic language and it also has a very simple structure. For example to make a noun plural you just repeat it twice. Oh so very brilliant. :wink:

And only when there's no other plural indicator in the sentence.

For example in Indonesian we say something like:
one child
two child
three child
several child
many child
etc. :)
