I know whjat these mean and rpesume Polish native speakers take them for granted without giving them a thouhgt. My question is whether anyone on PF knows how, when and why they arose, perhaps who was the first to use them in the media.

I can even understanding zajebisty (f****** good), but full wypas? Sounds like something a sheepherder would make up. Any comments on its etymology?

I'm not sure, but I think that "wypas" is from cows on the field. They eat a lot of grass, so they are good-feeded, big, healthy. So something "wypasione" is good, not cheap, have a lot of features, etc.

full wypas

fully loaded car ( with all the extra features) was used originally used to describe a car

I am not sure if it it used to describe other things.

Wypas/wypasiony=well fed, therefore the car fully loaded is described as :full wypas

I guess you understand which word it's derived from.

is kind of a free for all kind of word.. it has many different meanings depending on how it is used.

I'm not sure, but I think that "wypas" is from cows on the field. They eat a lot of grass, so they are good-feeded, big, healthy. So something "wypasione" is good, not cheap, have a lot of features, etc.

right on.

we use this word in Russian for the same purpose and plenty others but it's considered rough.


But this is only for livestock...

[Moved from]: zajebisty~zajedwabisty

To older Poles zajebisty has a crude and vulgar ring to it, but younger Poles claim nothing bad is intended. It's just a slang way of evaluating something in a positive light. If so, why has the euphemism zajedwabisty been thought up?

Just another iteration, like in any other language words are gaining new meanings and are generally changing, there's lots of such words: zajebiszczy, zajebongo, zajebitny.. probably even more in other parts of Poland..

It's an euphemism for zajebisty, which is still considered rough by most people.

I remember Agnieszka Chylińska using it on TV, but I'm not sure when exactly and what programme it was. I don't think she was the first one either, but then I'm not much of a TV viewer.

And I remember "wypas" used by Gulczas, a guy from the 1st edition of the Polish Big Brother, in some sort of a TV commercial - something to do with cars probably, as the exact quote was "Nysa to jest wypas". I've just checked and the 1st edition of BB in Poland was in 2001, so the commercial must have been on the air soon after that - end of 2001? The expression was quite new then.

Merged: Slang word my polish friend uses for when something is really great, fabulous??

In English it kinda sounds like Ziabeasta? :)

Zajebista (better to say zajebisty). Or better not to say it at all, since it's a very vulgar word. Translates as f*cking brilliant'.
