The Sorbian language is a member of the West Slavic branch of languages. It is also known as Wendish. It is similar to Czech, Polish and Slovak but still it is a completely different language that has kept some of the elements of the old language of the Slavs. It is spoken in a small area in Germany called Luzica. Therefore the name of its speakers is Luzicki Sorbi. There are 2 important dialects which are sometimes described as separate languages, Upper Sorbian and Lower Sorbian language.
