Lower Sorbian

This is a textbook of Lower Sorbian language, used by about 10,000 speakers from a Sorbian ethnic minority in a German land of Brandenburg. The textbook is basing on a Bogumil Šwjela's book, Grammatik der Niedersorbische Sprache (1952). The spelling is however modernised, consulted with a dictionary Dolnoserbsko-nimski słownik / Niedersorbisch-deutsches Wörterbuch of Manfred Starosta (1999).
