Slovenian Language
 
The Slovenian Language
An Era of Englightenment
 
The Slovenian Alphabet has twenty-five letters, it excludes the letters Q, W, X, Y  which is part of the english alphabet, but includes letters such as c ch sound as in cherry, s sh as in shoe, and z ge as in garage.
The Slovenian language is phonetic,  with very few exceptions, each letter has only one sound. This makes reading and writing much easier than other languages.
Franc Preseren, scholar writer , whose skills  and expertise gave us the written word and is known among Slovenians as the fatherr of our language.

Here are just a few examples of our language.

This is but a smattering of the language,  as it is spoken so it is  written. I shall be altering the various expressions used, and at a later stage shall also provide a wav file   with  the spoken word  making it easier to express and understand.
