Can anyone tell me a few polish words that would be said in celebration, such as:
Yay!
Victory!

Is it true that booing is a rather new, English-influenced way of expressing audience disapproval? Earlier it had always been whistling (wygwizdać kogoś), but since Americans whistle their approval, the Pole had no choice but małpować....

Also the jeering boooo in a big crowd can sound like the Polish uuuuuu of approval. Can anyone authoritatively sort this out, please?
