Don't you think that you say here is funny :)
The fact is that in Polish the stress is on syllable only. That fact that all vowels within syllable may (but not always are) pronounced doesn;t mean they are stressed, as stress is a relative, not an absolute quality of a sound.
I meant that every vowel is "fully" pronounced, not reduced to schwa
as in english. You're right, I should't have used the word "stressed". And I don't think it's funny, I just expressed it in wrong words. sorry, I didn't want to mislead anyone.
I guess you meant a consonant.
No I didn't. "Th" is the most difficult consonant for poles to pronounce, but it's still easier to produce TH than some of the vowels. you just have to put your tounge between you teeth:)
in case of vowels, in polish there is no distinction between short and long vowels (that's why poles often mispronounce "peace", "beach" etc) so poles have difficulties in grasping the significance of such distinction.
another vowel, called "ash" (like in "cat"), is also hard to produce, as there is no such sound in polish.
and finally, "schwa", the unaccented vowel, poses many problems, because the phonetic value of polish vowels doesn't significantly change even if fast speech (try to say the word KOLORADO in polish, and you'll see that even if you say it fast, you have no doubts there are three "o" and one "a" within the word)
that is why I think TH is simpler to pronounce than english vowels.
