    Belarussian has a Latin alphabet that resembles the Polish alphabet (it has the L with the line through it).

    Bellorussian doesn't use cyrillic alphabet?

    It does. Belarussian alphabet:
    Taty probably refers to the Latin-based alphabet that was used f in the past (16-19 centuries), and is still used by some Belarussians abroad and by some Belarussian nationalists in Belarussia itself.

    The Belarussian Latin alphabet works the same as the Polish one in many ways.

    I.e. palatisation is denoted using the letter i (where is acts like the Cyrillic soft sign) or an acute accent.

    E.g.

    Belarusian Cyrillic: Беларусь
    Belarusian Latin: Biełaruś

    The i tells the reader that the B is soft. The I is SILENT however. [In this context I is identical to Cyrillic ь]
    ś is soft S [сь]

    After taking 5 years of Russian... I found that it is so easy to get into Belarusian... I have fallen in love with the Cyrillic part of the Belarusian language. There are just so many languages i am into, eventhough i am also studying Italian, and Japanese I put those down for some time already to focus on Russian and Belarusian. And some time later on down the line i hope to learn Ukrainian. Cyrillic is such a beautiful alphabet!!!

    On Belarussian:

    Belarussian is very seldom used in Belarus - approximately 35% of Belarussians speak Belarussian at home, out of those a good half uses a mixture with Russian. Even offcially Russian is used more often than Belarussian in Belarus.

    Learning multiple similar languages will cause confusion, I would master one then move to another. Ukrainian has more value than Belarussian, unless you want to livea and work in Belarus.
