Friulian 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 grammar and vocabulary notes, as well as supplementary examples of usage, I have provided a study of the Friulian language through all 50 chapters of the book of Genesis and am now working through the 40 chapters of the book of Exodus. In these posts, you will find detailed notes related to Friulian, which will allow you to acquire a great deal of the modern, standard form of the language.
The Bible, providing an inexhaustible range of language to study, is the ideal resource for learning Friulian — even more so given that the entire text has been recorded for you to listen to. The text that you will read is from Bibie par un popul. (Archived pages for back-up are here.) This Bible uses contemporary language that you can incorporate into your own use of spoken and written Friulian and will be of immediate use to you in normal language situations. Note: Begin your study with the posts for Gjenesi 1.
* Certain Genesis chapters contain more than one post — be sure to work through them all. The chapters whose notes are split into different parts are indicated by an asterisk.

Polish is a Slavic 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 Slavic languages.
Through grammar and vocabulary notes, I have provided a study of the Polish language through all 50 chapters of the book of Genesis and am now working through the 40 chapters of the book of Exodus. These detailed notes will assist you in learning the modern language and in understanding the Bible in its Polish version. Different recordings of stellar quality are available for Polish, and I recommend that you listen to what you have studied from the Bible as many times as possible.
The text that you will read is from Biblia Tysiąclecia. (Archived pages for back-up are here.) This version is a modern translation into Polish from the original languages and provides an ideal resource for learning Polish. Note: Begin your study with Rdz 1.
