The reader will learn Friulian and Polish here, through detailed notes relating to the text of contemporary Friulian and Polish translations of the Bible. Along with the audio, he may use these notes to assist himself in his independent study.

News: 23.VII.2020. Certain Exodus and Leviticus posts for both Friulian and Polish are being edited are not accessible for the moment. There will be no new posts until this edit has been completed; I expect my edit to draw to a close towards the end of August 2020, whereupon I will resume the creation of new material.

Lenghe furlaneFriulian is a Romance language spoken in the far north-east corner of Italy, in an area located due west of the Italian border with Slovenia. Friulian is spoken by about a half-million people.

Through linguistic commentary, I am currently providing a study of the Friulian language through the five books of Moses, known as the Pentateuch (il Pentateuc) or Torah (il Torà); these five books — the first five of the Bible — are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. In these posts, the reader will find detailed notes related to Friulian, which will allow him to acquire a great deal of the standardised form of the language.

The Bible, with its inexhaustible range of language to study, is the ideal resource for learning Friulian — even more so given that it has been read aloud by many different speakers of Friulian and and recorded. The text to be read is from Bibie par un popul (visit this official site to read the Bible, or view archived pages here). This Bible uses contemporary language which the learner may incorporate into his own use of Friulian. Note: Study begins at Gjenesi 1.

polski-01Polish is a Slavonic language spoken by some fifty million people, both in Poland itself and by minorities in different parts of the world. Polish is the second-most widely spoken of the Slavonic tongues.

Through linguistic commentary, I am currently providing a study of the Polish language through the five books of Moses, known as the Pentateuch (Pięcioksiąg) or Torah (Tora); these five books — the first five of the Bible — are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. These detailed notes will assist the reader in learning the modern language and in understanding the Bible in its Polish version. Different recordings of stellar quality are available for Polish.

The text to be read is from Biblia Tysiąclecia (visit this official site to read the Bible, or view archived pages here). This version is a modern translation into Polish from the original languages and provides an ideal resource for learning Polish. Note: Study begins at Rdz 1.
