Kashubians

Quote:
Kashubians/Kaszubians (Kashubian: Kaszëbi, Polish: Kaszubi/ Kaszuby, German: Kaschuben), also called Kashubs, Kashubes, Kaszubians, Kassubians or Cassubians, are a West Slavic ethnic group in Pomerelia, north-central Poland. Their settlement area is referred to as Kashubia (Kashubian: Kaszëbë, Polish: Kaszuby, German: Kaschubei, Kaschubien).
They speak Kashubian, classified either as a language or a Polish dialect.[1][2] In analogy to the linguistic classification, Kashubians are considered either an ethnic or a linguistic group.[2]

Part of Czech Republik inhabited by Polish minority.





Part of Slovakia with large number of Hungarian inhabitants.


It's been posted before, but it suits to this thread as well.
Directions to Sahy on Hungarian side.



M0 motorway in Hungary.


And Slovakia again.
Where, the hell, is Polish translation!?

That's true. Natives living there, does not matter which side of the border, speak in their own funny dialect, sometimes hard to understand for people(Czechs, Slovaks or Poles) from outside the region.

Yes, exactly and it is usually because they speak so fast and with this funny accent. What a pity I can't find any video on youtube.

Btw, what I found on wikipedia -

Quote:
Slovanské kmeny usadivší se na Slezsku měly svůj specifický jazyk - slezštinu. Slezština se řadí do západoslovanských jazyků, ve spojení s polštinou, češtinou, slovenštinou, nebo lužickou srbštinou. Náleží tedy mezi slovanské jazyky, do rodiny jazyků indoevropských. Slezština se používá dodnes, dle polského sčítání lidu v roce 2002 se 60 000 lidí hlásilo ke slezštině jako rodnému jazyku.[4] Za jazyk ji pokládá Knihovna Kongresu Spojených států, která slezštině přiřadila mezinárodní kód „szl“.
So there is Silesian language which is used by 60 000 people in Poland.

we have the ß, at least in South Tyrol (see here: Weinstraße)


This is just an error of the Austrians. Perhaps it is correct according to the old German grammar (a few years ago they introduced new orthographic rules)

Correct. In Italy he most likely response to a sign like "Reschenpaß" would be: "what the hell has Greece to do with South Tyrol?

Not everybody accepted the new rules... I think Switzerland is still bound to the old ones...

No, Switzerland doesn't use "ß" at all. It's probably an old sign.

Nations using latin characters sometimes have an extra letter, like the ß, ţ, or ł. You just should know that, when you visit such a country. And it's just the same when you observe nations using cyrillic characters. There's not one form of cyrillic. Serbian cyrillic, Russian cyrillic, Bulgarian cyrillic: there are differences in using of letters. So why al this complaining over the ß ? It just one character replacing the old ſ and ʒ characters.
