I'm native Polish and I hate my own language.

the language is very superficial

I wonder what his first language is. Perhaps not Polish.

Askee. Yes, I just made that word up.

naughty rich: makes up English words :P

naughty

Very, but creating neologisms can be more nice than naughty. I've done it myself in Polish.

If nobody ever made one up, languages would be frozen in time; no language has 'owners', none are changeless.

I already mentioned it - it is Yiddish.

makes up English words :

Simply a genius. :):)

Its first language is of course Russian.

Rich a little exercise for you (to prove you are Polish by birth): translate this little dialogue below:

- I'll tell mom.

- Don't tell mom.

PS. I bet Russians can't do that

You always say so when you are at a loss of words. :):)

I try not to waste my words on un-serious and flippant mental farts like yours. It's like trying to nail that proverbial jello to the wall.

You, of course. You are constantly trying to correct native Poles

Because I know Polish enough to detect when you and others here are just showing off your juggling skills and make your posts weirder than necessary to convey the message. In most cases, there is no message, just an empty toy box.

You, Poles, somehow see this as artistic. In reality, it's just annoying pita with no upside to the reader who has to decipher your coded Polish crap aka alegorie.

BTW, the less I know Polish, the prouder I am.

Because I know Polish enough

Yes, exactly, your enough means superficially in our practice here.

BTW, the less I know Polish,

You see, you voluntarily corroborate my claim. Thank you, the case is closed. :):):)

the prouder I am.

Being proud of one`s stupidity isn`t really a good thing to pride oneself on. :):)

Nothing with stupidity. The only thing that's stupid here is rotting in Poland the way you do.
Let me explain how it works. From age 0 till 24, I was 80% in the listen mode. That's what students do. Subtract 18 years as a kid, and you have 6 years of Polish as an adult - still mostly in the listen mode as a student.

Then from 24 till now, my Polish was useful as hulajnoga or a smoczek. So I took mine to the curb and never looked back. My Polish-born and her Polish-born sister did the same thing.

Do you still suck on your smoczek?

Is it finally sinking or not yet?

Nothing with stupidity.

Actually, yes. Coz you are admitting now you have a superficial knowledge of Polish, yet you dare to correct native speakers. That is tragic stupidity.

never looked back.

Wrong! You desperately try to do it in the forum in Polish threads. :):)

rotting in Poland the way you do.

??? What makes you think I rot? I would say it is quite the contrary - I thrive in the country where I belong. :):)

yet you dare to correct native speakers.

Because many of you are lousy writers. I can't play or compose music but I know what dissonance is and detect it when I hear it.

1. Original text: Logikę pewnych ludzi jest trudne do zrozumienia.
2. English translation: Some people's logic is hard to understand.
3. Back to Polish by google: Logika niektórych ludzi jest trudna do zrozumienia

Hey, English professor, see the difference between 1 and 3? An American website speaks better Polish!!! Hahahaha...

The Polish is more logical than English.

Polish 3 is better than Polish 1 in Post 72. Polish 3 was written by a computer.

Of course not. Now you are speaking about guys like you - who know Polish superficially coz they lost contact with it when young or very young. You mistake them for native speakers.

1. Original text: Logikę pewnych ludzi jest trudne do zrozumienia.

Yes, that is a good example of what I am talking about.
In result, you provided us another proof of your tragic stupidity coz it is obvious you see no difference between a native Pole and a Polonia guy - you treat them the same while it is natural you mustn`t.

You make a fool of yourself repeatedly.

@Novichok
Very bad translation... Missing the social context entirely

1: Logikę pewnych ludzi jest trudne do zrozumienia.

Would be translated more accurately in english as:

"The logic of certain individuals are hard to comprehend"
With a dash of resignation and thinking it incomprehensable that the person being spoken to is making such choices about his choice of words

In case of your english version it would be rather: He is an idiot

Individual is? Individuals are?

They are right vs they is right

Sounds weird
Oathbreaker 4 | 389
15 Oct 2021 #78
It's the individuals who are hard to comprehend. Not the Logic itself tho
jon357 74 | 22,469

Quite, however their logic is rather than are.
Oathbreaker 4 | 389
15 Oct 2021 #80
So when I wish to underline their behaviour and how they ARE behaving, I still need to use "is"?
jon357 74 | 22,469
15 Oct 2021 #81
Yes. Their behaviour is. (Although their attitudes are.)
Oathbreaker 4 | 389
15 Oct 2021 #82
So I should have rather written:
"Novichok and his closest associates whom I wish not to name really, out of disrespect for them. Are clueless idiots and their logic is faulty and incomprehensable"?
jon357 74 | 22,469
15 Oct 2021 #83
Yes. That fits nicely, both in grammar and meaning.

Apart from the typo ".Are" which is probably down to autocorrect on a phone or something. Plus, when using "whom", less is usually more, however it's not actually incorrect..

when using "whom", less is usually more

The only time I use it is when it's a relative pronoun preceded by a preposition

The patron for whom the composer played the sonata was pleased.

The mayor about whom the book was written resigned in disgrace.

The soldier at whom they were shooting managed to escape.

Any other whom seems weird and intrusive.

I agree 100%.

Normal people do not use "whom" as they go about their daily lives - even where whom belongs.
You say to a friend "whom did you see" and he will worry about you. If it's on the first date, it will be your last.

Times sure have changed.
jon357 74 | 22,469
15 Oct 2021 #88
They always change as does language. After all, how often nowadays do you hear chędożyć or even toteż?

Educated people, however, do still use whom after a preposition.
Novichok 4 | 8,268
15 Oct 2021 #89
"Linguistic geeks" to avoid at all cost at the parties. They will use all their creativity to smuggle into a conversation multisyllabic words normal people don't even know exist. Like a guy with a $50,000 Rolex saying, oh crap! I just scratched my watch! Fifty grand down the tubes...

preposition.

What's that?

I hate my own language

It seems strange for someone to hate their own language. Or any other.

Perhaps what they really hate is themself.
