The Polish language
Polish (język polski) is an Indo-European language belonging to the West Slavic branch of the family along with Czech and Slovak (and a few others). It is spoken by app. 40 million people, most of whom live in Poland, where it is the official language. However, it is also a significant language in western parts of Belarus, Lithuanian and Ukraine. Interestingly, due to extensive emigration after World War II and also since Poland joined the European Union, large expat communities of Polish speakers exist in countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States, among others. In the UK, the 2011 census data showed that Polish was the second most spoken language, while Chicago (in the US), according to some estimates, can claim to be the second largest Polish city by population in the world after Warsaw.
Polish is written in Latin alphabet supplemented with some diacritics. As a Slavic language, it is highly inflected in terms of grammar, which affects a variety of parts of speech, including verbs.
About Polish conjugation
In Polish, the verbs can be conjugated by these major factors:
- person (the verb changes depending on the person it is referring to, e.g. 'robię' - 'I do', or 'robi' - 'he/she does'),
- number (are we talking about a single person like in 'robi' - 'he/she does', or many: 'robią' - 'they do'),
- gender (Polish distinguishes male, female and neuter genders in singular, whereas in plural verb forms are divided by whether they refer to a group of all-masculine persons or any other (mixed, or all-feminine) group),
- perfective/imperfective aspect (a feature present in most Slavic languages that distinguishes whether a verb refers to an action performed to completion, e.g. 'zrobić' is "perfective", or whether a verb emphasises the process of performing an action, e.g. 'robić' is "imperfective"),
- tense (Polish distinguishes present, past and future tenses, although past perfect also exists mainly in literature; imperfective verbs form simple present and compound future tenses whereas perfective verbs only have simple future which is formed the same way as simple present for imperfective verbs),
- mood (which indicates the attitude, and is distinguished as indicative, conditional or imperative, e.g. 'robisz' - 'you do', 'robiłabyś' - 'you would do' and 'rób' - 'do!'),
- voice (indicates the actor and can be active or passive, e.g. 'robię' - 'I do' and 'jestem robiony' - 'I am (being) done'),
- impersonal forms (these exist in present and past tense, e.g. 'robiono' - 'it is done').
