Lyzko 28 Jul 2012 #61Paweł, German and English are less than convincing analogies here, as neither belongs to a language family which has ever used ANY extant alphabet but the Latin (that is, if one momentarily excludes Gothic script!). Polish on the other hand belongs to a language group many of whose representatives do use a non-Latin alphabet, principally Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian etc... In fact, Polish originally was slated too for Cyrillic, but it was then decided that in order to Christianize the Poles more successfully, the Latin alphabet was the more appropriate choice! The reasons therefore were entirely socio-cultural, NOT linguistic, e.g. would Polish phonemes somehow fit "better" into a Latin or Cyrillic alphabet or notLOLRozumiesz moje zdanie?
