they are all very soft and subtle
South and east parts of Austrian annexation (Galicia) were settled by Ukrainians (£emkowie) and Poles living there have a soft pronunciation probably after them. Main places are Florynka, Krynica, Wysowa, Komańcza, Sanok, Ustrzyki. Beautiful, wild and empty (now) territories of Beskid Niski and Bieszczady Mountains are full of orthodox churches, chapels, cemeteries and remains of £emeks architecture even today. I like to travel there.
it's beautiful, it's taught
Ha ha! I know it. My aunt was an actress. But I still hate this pronunciation. ByLem mLodym maLżonkiem - pish! I really don't see any moral or aesthetic superiority of it. My family is deeply indignant of mine!
Btw, the history of this translation from L to £ (flat u) I find quite interesting.
