Language / Polish regional accents? [141]

you know, I'm actually curious as to which point of time following the war, did the accent actually change, or start changing, and how it became nation-spread.

I mean, with the pronunciation of hard/soft ł, and letter 'y' from yj/i in words. Also, they used to pronounce 'cz' as 'sz' in many words, primarily in cases where cz was proceeded by 'ł'.

Love / Good looking Polish women with ugly men [416]

Men with shaved heads, scars on their faces, no necks, and with about as much conversational skills as a potato.

lmao... sound like typical 'skinheads' to me :/

I think I would stand out far too much walking around back home. I'm such a typical urban city-dwelling westernised Polak, with facial piercings, dyed hair/eyebrows, wearing not-so-typical clothes and jewellery =PP

Language / Polish regional accents? [141]

Merged: Are there any regions in Polska today, which still speak with the pre-war accent?

Are there any regions in Polska today, which still speak with the pre-war accent?

I simply adore it.. especially in songs sung by Eugeniusz Bodo and Mieczysław Fogg, for instance. It was obviously influenced strongly by Russian, but sounded soo much more pleasant than today's Polish. :P

My mother was taught to speak it that way by her Belorussian mother back when was younger and living in Zabłudów, but she unfortunately adapted the modern accent upon moving to Gdańsk in the 80's, before she had us. :(

Language / Chcę and chce [21]

why do many Poles often neglect the final 'ę' in words??

my mother taught me to ALWAYS pronounce it clearly... like in the phrase 'Lubię Cię'.

Of course, since polish is generally spoken really quickly, that sound obviously would be omitted for the most part.

But still, just like when she pronounces the word 'język'... she doesn't say 'JEN-zyk', like soo many videos on youtube teach, for example... she says 'ję' nasalized! ~ THE PROPER WAY!.. like in french

I don't think it's even possible to spell it phonetically, when properly spoken, with a nasal.

News / What you think about parliament monarchy in Poland? Imperial Poland? [13]

Monarchies are soo medieval, and simply don't fit into our modern day societies. I don't know how or why the UK, for example, still has one. Japan, on the other hand, has an Emperor - one who basically has no political power whatsoever, yet is incredibly adored by almost every Japanese resident.

History / How do Poles feel about 10th anniversary of 9/11 [40]

I was 15 and staying with my aunt in Williamsburg during that time... I remember everything that day. I was standing on the williamsburg bridge watching the towers collapse..

Also, my cousin, Edyta, worked in the south tower on the 37th floor, but her shift started at 9:30 am... she was riding on the subway as the north tower got struck by the plane..

Language / Weekend vs Łikend [15]

I see łikend used a lot more than the English variant, but if we have Polish names for each day of the week, and words like tygodnia/tydzień to describe the whole week, why not a word for weekends? :O

Another example I like is łał! instead of wow!.. lol

History / What are Poland's pagan roots? [62]


bring back our beloved Slavic Deities!!!!! <3

Bailobog - The white God of the waxing year; Guardian of the summer. Bailobog would defeat his brother in battle every Koliada to take his rightful place as the ruler of the waxing year. At Kupalo, Czarnobog would defeat Bailobog in battle to assume his position of ruler of the waning half of the year. Bailobog is said only to appear by day to assist travelers to find their way out of dark forests or reapers in the fields.

News / POLAND HAS LOST 1 MILLION PEOPLE (for other EU countries) [30]

in the late 1800's to early 1900's, the average fertility rate for polish women both in poland and america was around 7.1 (my prababcia had 11 kids living on a farm in Zabludow - 4 males died in WWII) maternal babcia had 8 of her own (all survived).. and my mom had 4 (+ 2 miscarriages)..

The Polki of today should once again follow this trend, and our population *decline* will quickly be reversed. :D

I don't understand why people are so overly concerned about being financially stable to support their offspring..

I mean, ****.. you have pakistani couples having an average of 8+ kids while living on welfare in Canada, yet they all seam to live happy, prosperous lives, and send their children all off to universities later on.

I'm 24, make just over minimum wage, and live happily on my own... yet i'm incredibly desperate to have kids... I wanna start off with 1, then 2, then 4, then 6...hell, i'd go for 10 or more.. money or no money.. there are ALWAYS ways to support your kids in a developed country, So so so so soo many ways. :)

Life / How many Jewish people live in Poland? [145]

According to Wikipedia:

There are 50,000 Jew in Poland.

those numbers could be wayyyyyyyyyyy off. Many sources state that there could be 10-20 times that amount, or even more. So many Poles (like my father) either don't know about their jewish past or learn about it at a much later age.

regardless, the numbers are growing daily. :D

Life / Will Polish people be accepting that im only half polish? [63]

Gary Grzelak, my parents went to poland last year and they told me that not only 'skin heads' attack random people. My mom is very honest and she told me that 'they' love to harass colored people, english-speaking people, tourists in general. Hell, they were approached by them (in their cabin) 4 times while on a 2-hour train trip in north-east (podlasie) poland. One threatened to take my mom's purse unless she handed over a bottle of vodka she brought for her cousin in bialystok. lol

****, i'm fully polish and i'm scared shitless to go there, especially to ride on a bus or train by myself.

Poles are very interested in the Polish expat community and even half-Poles. You'll be quite popular, especially among the ladies.

true... when i was last in poland for vocation in 1999, i was in a playground behind our building and the moment i told these kids swinging next to us that i was from Canada, all of a sudden 20 more kids ran over and huddled around us. lol .. they tried speaking english to me, i guess in attempt to practice theirs.
