Yes, indeed! Belorussian in Poland was mentioned already. Second is the language of the Lemko's in Poland. They number ca. 50,000 and disagree about their ethnic adherence: part of them consider themselves Ukrainians, some believe they are Rusinians (Rusyns), some others think Lemko's are a separate group. I prefer to think of them as Rusinians. The majority of them are Orthodox, by the way. If I am not mistaking, they use the Latin script as well. Sorry for my late reaction, Jan ===== "You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." --- J. Michael Straczynski __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
