Polski, or as it's called in English Polish, is a constructed language of the naturalistic kind. Genetically, Polish is a descendant of Slavic rather than Romance, based on the premise that the Roman Empire had not incorporated the ancestors of the Veneds into their territory. Also, it is designed to show what Wenedyk would have looked like if it had been a Slavic instead of a Romance language.

The idea for the language was inspired by such languages as Czech, Sorbian and Kashubian. The language itself is based entirely on Common Slavic: all phonological, morphological, and syntactic changes that made Wenedyk develop from Vulgar Latin are applied to Common Slavic.

Polish plays a role in Thorsten's alternate history of the European Union, where it is one of the official languages of Republic of Poland.
