Chapter Summary

It is thought that lecturers using this book in their teaching may appreciate a guide to the pronunciation of the Polish names and terms such a work inevitably contains. Some of them may look a bit daunting to the uninitiated, but the pronunciation of Polish is almost entirely regular. The Polish language is written in the Latin alphabet with the addition of a few additional letters, diacritical marks, and several characteristic two-letter combinations. The sounds they make may be approximated by the English speaker. The stress of words usually falls on the penultimate syllable.
