Subject: Re: ISO 639 proposal - Silesian - discussion

Dear Hĺvard Hjulstad,


Thank you very much for your letter.


Our previous letter to you regarded the status of the Slavophone idiom (though interlaced with numerous Germanic linguistic loans) of the historical region of Upper Silesia, today split between Poland and the Czech Republic. Most of the region is located in Poland, where it is currently divided between the Voivodeships (Regions) of Opole and Silesia (formerly Katowice). In one-third, the latter region is composed from historically non-Upper Silesian territories. In the Czech Republic, most of its share of historical Upper Silesia is contained within the Kraj (Region) of Ostrava.


Upper Silesia is the sole section of historical Silesia, where the native population was not expelled after 1945, as it happened in Lower Silesia. After World War II, Lower Silesia denuded of its overwhelmingly German-speaking population, it was resettled with Polish settlers from Central Poland, and Polish expellees from eastern Galicia, incorporated to Soviet Ukraine in 1940. Bearing this in mind, the so-called Lower Silesian dialect, for all practical reasons, is indistinguishable from standard Polish.


We are writing in regard of the idiom of Upper Silesia. In the 20th century, Czech and Polish scholars claimed it as a dialect for Czech and Polish, respectively. Earlier, in the 18th and 19th centuries, prior to the rise of ethnic Czech and Polish nationalisms, scholars spoke of the Silesian language, meaning the Slavic idiom of Upper Silesia (in Lower Silesia, German was spoken). In the first half of the 20th century, German scholars preferred to designate the idiom of Upper Silesia as ‘Slavic.’


Between 1920 and 1922, historical Upper Silesia was divided among Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Poland. In 1938, Germany and Poland seized Czechoslovakia’s share of the region. In 1939, Germany incorporated entire historical Upper Silesia. In 1945, Czechoslovakia regained its share of Upper Silesia, while Poland was granted with Germany’s prewar section of the region along other German territories east of the Oder-Neisse line.


The frequent changes of borders rather than making the Upper Silesians into Czechs, Germans, or Poles, fortified their own ethnolinguistic national identity. In 1919-1922, in Prussian Upper Silesia, the Bund der Oberschlesier / Związek Górnoślązaków (Union of the Upper Silesians) with half a million members, appealed for autonomous or independent nation-state for the Upper Silesians. During the same time, in Austrian Upper Silesia, the Schlesische Volkspartei / Śląska Partia Ludowa (Popular Silesian Party) appealed for independence for this region or autonomous status for it in Germany or Czechoslovakia.


In the interwar period, the expression of the ethnolinguistic national identity of the Upper Silesians was possible, though Berlin, Prague, and Warsaw gradually suppressed it. At that time, the self-ethnonym ‘Silesian’ stabilized for referring to Upper Silesia’s native Slavophone population. By extension, they began to refer to their speech as the ‘Silesian language,’ as well.


During the communist period, when the orthodoxy of ethnolinguistically homogenous Poland and Czechoslovakia obtained, it was impossible to express the (Upper) Silesian identity, and cultivate the (Upper) Silesian language. When the identificational and linguistic difference surfaced in everyday life, the authorities interpreted it as ‘regional’ or ‘dialectal,’ and as such connected either with the Czech nation and its language or the Polish nation and its language. The population concerned disagreed, because the speech and customs of ‘Czech’ and ‘Polish’ Silesians are practically the same and equally distant from standard Czech and standard Polish and national cultures connected to both languages.


In regard of the information given above, please refer to:


Tomasz Kamusella. 2003. The Szlonzoks and Their Language: Between Germany, Poland and Szlonzokian Nationalism (Ser: HEC No 2003/1). Florence: European University Institute (also available at


Tomasz Kamusella. 2006 [Forthcoming]. Silesia and Central European Nationalisms: The Emergence of National and Ethnic Groups in Silesia, 1848-1918. West Lafayette IN: Purdue University Press.


For the first time after World War I, the Silesians could freely express their ethnolinguistic national identity following the fall of the communist regimes in Czechoslovakia and Poland (1989). In the 1991 Czechoslovak census, 44,000 persons declared their nationality as Silesian. In the 2002 Polish census, 173,000 persons declared their nationality as Silesian. From among them, 70,000 persons declared Silesian as their language of everyday inter-family communication.


Beginning in the 1990s, numerous publications in the Silesian language and bilingual dictionaries of Silesian have been published in Poland and the Czech Republic. Due to the sheer demographic size, the Silesian national movement has been more vibrant in Poland than in the Czech Republic. In my previous message, I enclosed a lengthy list of a representative selection of such publications. In this letter I add more.


In 2004, the Polish branch of the EU’s Bureau for the Lesser Used Languages registered Silesian as one of the lesser used languages spoken in Poland.


I hope that this detailed explanation of the sociolinguistic history and situation of the Silesian language will suffice to make it possible for you to grant the language with its specific ISO 639 language code.


However, should you need further verification, please advise, what kinds of materials and information you may need.

Subject: FW: ISO 639 proposal - Silesian - discussion

Dear proposers,
Below please find a message that has been sent to the ISO 639 Joint Advisory Committee. Committee members would like to have some further information:
Please look at the Ethnologue database. The entry is for "Lower Silesian"; cd the entry for "Polish", which lists "Upper Silesian" as a dialect.
Which of these items (if any) do you mean? If you are thinking of the entry "Lower Silesian" in Ethnologue, it is already encoded in what will soon be ISO 639-3 with the identifier "sli". We then need to assess whether the item should be moved also to ISO 639-2. On the other hand, if you mean what in Ethnologue is identified as "Upper Silesian, dialect of Polish" we need some further verification as to the basis of encoding this as an individual language (as opposed to a dialect of Polish).
Any input would be most welcome.
Best regards,
Håvard Hjulstad

Subject: ISO 639 proposal - Silesian - discussion

Dear JAC members,
We need to process the proposal below.
Ethnologue and ISO 639-3 has "sli" = Lower Silesian, with the additional info: "Different from Upper Silesian, a dialect of Polish".
The Linguasphere Registry probably indends this item under 53-AAA-cck under Polish or 53-AAA-dam under Czech.
If indeed the intended item is "sli", the question would be to move it from 639-3 to 639-2. No alpha-2 identifier is proposed.
Discussion please (until 14 April).
