Covers the "Slavonic" or Slovenčina + Slovensko set, part of the "Balto-Slavic" grouping within the "Indo-European" intercontinental affinity.

Comprising 1 set of languages (= 8 outer languages) spoken by communities in eastern Europe and northern Asia, from the Alps to the Bering Sea.

Including 2 arterial languages: Russkiy (Russian); Ukrainska (Ukrainian) with Belarusskaya (Belarussian).

There is partial intelligibility among most of the Slavonic languages, with Sloven_ina (Slovakian) at the geographic "centre-of-gravity" of this linguistic network. There may be more variation among the idioms of Slovensko (Slovenian) than among several of the closely related official national Slavonic languages of some nation-states, such as Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, for example.
