Corrections[edit source]

Are you sure about the following?

  • Oo - This represents the English "o" sound in "pot" and "hop", but at the end of a word represents the English "o" sound in "go" and "piano".
  • Dd - The same sound as the "Dd" sound in English. At the end of a word, it becomes the English "Tt" sound.
  • Ńń - This represents the "ñ" sound in "El Niño" (except, for example, in the word "elephant" or [[[w:pl:Słoń_afrykański|"słoń")]]].

Could you provide examples of Poloish words where this applies? I can give the example of 'okno' (i.e. window) to counter the first point.

Also ć and cz make different sounds. I corrected your article.--00iCon 03:26, 9 December 2009 (UTC)[reply]
