Slovak Language Orthography
The Slovak language, sometimes incorrectly called "Slovakian", is an Indo-European language that belongs to the West Slavic languages (together with Czech, Polish, Silesian, Kashubian, and Sorbian). The primary principle of Slovak spelling is the phonemic principle, "Write as you hear". The secondary principle is the morphological principle: Forms derived from the same stem are written in the same way even if they are pronounced differently.
The Slovak Language and Its Relationship to Other Languages
The Slovak language is a descendant of Proto-Slavic language, itself a descendant of Proto-Indo-European. It is closely related to the other West Slavic languages. In particular, Slovak is very closely related to the Czech language. It also has some striking similarities with other Slavic languages. The Slovak language has been influenced by many languages, including Czech, Polish, and German.
