Here's a look at some of the languages spoken in these lands, and a short manual to the linguistic idiosyncrasies which often entailed complicated issues of ethnic, social and even economical background.1. Macaronic2. Lithuanian3. Belarusian4. Ukrainian5. Yiddish6. Hebrew7. Esperantoculture.pl/en/article/poland-didnt-always-speak-polish-the-lost-linguistic-diversity-of-europeIt's a shame that it's all been lost. I would've loved to have lived in a country where Ukrainian, Yiddish, German and other languages were all spoken side by side with Polish.
