The Kashubian Language

The Kashubian language is part of the West Slavic group found within the Slavic languages. About 200,000 people speak Kashubian, also known as Cassubian, Cashubian or Kaszubski. Of these speakers, only about 25% of these speakers speak it on a daily basis. Those who speak the Kashubian language typically live in the northern part of central Poland, in a region called Pomerania, which is located on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea and between the Vistula and Oder rivers. Additionally, there are those who speak Kashubian in Canada. Because so few people speak the language and few schools teach it, the Kashubian language is in the category of a “threatened” language.

The Kashubian language first came to be in the 1300s. However, it was only up until recently that many linguists categorized Kashubian to be part of Polish simply as another dialect. There are multiple dialects within the language such as Kashubian proper and Slovincian, with heavy German and Polish influences. The Kashubian language has several works of literature as well. The earliest known published pieces of Kashubian literature are in the 16th century. The spiritual songs, Duchowne Piesnie by Szymon Krofei was published in 1586 while the Maly Catechism by Michal Pontanus was published in 1643.

The written Kashubian language that is used today was developed by Florian Ceynowa in his Outline of the Grammar of Kashubian-Slovincian Language, which was published in 1879 in Poznan. There are less than 100 schools where the children learn the Kashubian language. Some media such as radio and TV are available in the Kashubian language currently. The language itself is written in Latin script.
