.just a through z

It wasn't always thus. Britain adopted printing earlier and on a larger scale than most. When that happened, several letters disappeared for the sake of printers' ease.

Simple doesn`t always mean superior. Or

Indeed, though no European alphabet, including the Polish one, is especially difficult.

The same with pronunciation. Speakers of English freak out at the szcz sound (as in Szczebrzeszyn) however they're happy to say the word pushchair.

Thought Hungary or Wales tied for the longest place names.

Szombatvasarhély, Abrystwyth...

I am trying to figure out if this thread is about masochism or sadism...

Sado-masochism solely for the ignorant and uninformed.

Szombatvasarhély,

I am proud not to know where that place is and how to pronounce the name.

Abrystwyth

Aberystwyth. Not far from Pwllheli.

BTW, this is the classic Polish film clip:

Muckanaghederdauhaulia - try this one from Ireland :)) It's not that bad actually. The longest Welsh one has 58 letters.

I am sure it's an interesting story...Can you cut it up into what we call words?

Back to original thread from 2011....But Szczebrzeszyn is more famous because of its name than the grandpa who was born there. Have you any good idea?

There was a guy in Szczebrzeszynie whose name was Szczakula. Before he moved, he changed it to Srakula.
