Ida bo mom szychta - is supposedly Silesian jargon. My question is what the ending of the adjective would be: nocna szychta (accusative), nocno szychta or what?

Also I believe -byk is the condtional particle: Jo byk zrobił (-bym in standard Polish), whilst in Góral it would be -bych?
Does mazurzenie commonly occur in Silesian speech? Would anybody say sychta instead of szychta?

Gwara is the dialect, Pol3. A Ślązak is a man from Silesia and a woman is Ślązaczka. There is a Gwara thread that I created some time ago but it may have fallen off the bottom of the list.

Nope, it's there. Type in Gwara to the Search box and you'll find it.

In Silesian dialect it would be: mam nocno szychta (normally in Polish we have "nocną szychtę")

In Silesian dialect you don't find "mazurzenie" - sychta would say the mountainer (from Beskida or Tatra mountains).

The Silesian dialect referred to here apparently is "Czech-ized" Polish, or Polacized Czech. There has been a mixed Czech, Polish, and even German population there in the past few centuries.

Interesting connection between "gwara" or "dialect" in Polish, "gwar" or "noise" and then the verb "g[o]VORit" (to speak) in Russian vs. "mowic" in Polish (no doubt a kissing cousin, at least a relative of Czech "mlutvit"). What passes for speech in Russian may at one time long ago been considered noise in Polish:-)

Just thought I'd chime in here with this off-topic observation!

you are completely wrong - Silesian dialect is not Czech-ized Polish - it's a completely separate developement

There is the verb gaworzyć in Polish which does not mean to speak in general (as in Russian) but to chatter, palaver, gossip or it is used to describe a baby's first attempts to mimic speech.

There is also gawędzić (like the first meaning of gaworzyć to chat), gawęda is a spoken story or yarn and a gawędziarz is a good story-teller or yarn-spinner.

Oooh, nice one Polonius! Thanks:-) Shows how related language family speakers once perceived each others' native tongue.

mam nocno szychta

How would one say in Silesian: Weź tę brudną łapę.
Judging by what you wrote, Aniu, I'd say its: Weź to brudno łapa.
