The Slovenian writing system is based on the Latin alphabet with a total of 25 letters. The q, w, x and y characters, as well as the Slavic ć, dž, đ, lj, and nj characters, are excluded from the Slovenian alphabet, but can show up in foreign proper names.1
Slovenian is now regulated by the Slovenian Academy of Arts and Sciences, which is the standard bearer for Slovenian grammar, as well as its writing system.
Additional resources on the Slovenian writing system can be found on the Web at:The Slovenian Language, please see our Quick Facts Library.
