This map shows the regions
of the world where Sorbian was once spoken (red circle). Also
known as Wendish or Venetic, Sorbian only survives in some 200
or so short inscriptions. Sorbian is in the West Slavic family
of languages, which in turn come from the Slavic sub-branch
of the Balto-Slavic branch of Indo-European. It is most closely
related to Polish, Slovak,
and Czech. It is also related
to East Slavic languages like Russian,
Ukrainian, and Belarusian,
and to South Slavic languages like Slovenian,
