 A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE POLISH LANGUAGE:


Development of the Polish Language

 

The originality of Polish culture is tied to its language and to its Slavonic roots. The evolution of the Polish language occurred between the IX and XV Centuries.

 

In spoken words and in the literature, Polish language reflects the intellectual and material culture. Early Polish vocabulary contained a lot of cultural information and the adoption of foreign words grew with the passage of time. Over the last Century, Polish language had been modernised by new European and American terms; related to fashions, sports, arts, politics, and technology. Presently modern Polish dictionaries contain over 200,000 entries, which one-third of these are foreign adaptations, while about one-fourth are still close to old Slavonic words.

 

Although Polish was the national language of Poland, the influence of the Roman Catholic Church introduced Poland to Latin - the lingua franca of western European culture. Polish translations of Latin texts and other Polish publications were the only source of the eastern Slavic peoples' knowledge about Western civilization.

 

A constitutional Polish monarchy evolved between XIII and XV Centuries. During this time, legal process was established in Poland and Polish language became a language of elegance and civility in east central Europe. Poland acquired a civilizing role between the Baltic and the Black Seas with Polish being used as the language of diplomacy. By the end of the XVth century, national and regional parliaments became catalysts of social and cultural life in Poland. Poland played a significant role in the rest of Europe by the royal court and the town. The first Digest of Polish Law was printed in Kraków in 1488; it included a royal guarantee against searches and seizures. Approximately 15,000 different Polish words were used in the preserved medieval texts.
