Polish alphabet


The latin alphabet was adopted to write Polish with the christianization of the country in the Xth century. The language was for the first time codified about 1440 with the composition in Latin of a treaty of the Polish orthography. Written by Samuel Bogumil Linde between 1807 - 1814, the first Polish language dictionary described 60 000 words.
