    The Polish alphabet consists of 32 letters: a, ą, b, c, ć, d, e, ę, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, ł, m, n, ń, o, ó, p, (q), r, s, ś, t, u, (v), w, (x), y, z, ź, ż.


    These seven letters indicate vowels: a, e, i, o, ó, u, y (the y is never a consonant like in English), however:

      [li]the pronunciation of ó and u is identical,[/li]
      [li]i before a vowel forms an element of a di- or trigraph,[/li]
      [li]i and u can indicate consonantals identical to j and ł (= English y and w respectively) in some words,[/li]

    The three additional letters q, v and x occur only in those non-assimilated foreign words which have preserved their original spelling.

    The order of these 35 letters is essential when you look up words in dictionaries: góra will follow gotyk, because ó is a separate letter, not a variety of the letter o.

    Traditionally we also mention 7 digraphs corresponding to single sounds: ch, cz, dz, dź, dż, rz, sz. However the combinations ci, dzi, gi, ki, ni, si, zi (and with some reservation also bi, fi, mi, pi, wi) have a similar function in some contexts (before a vowel).
