n'yea-ve-ar-e-god-ny.........the stress of the word falls on the 'god' part, in Polish the stress is always on the 2nd last syllable
OP incredible

Merged: niewiarygodny, does it mean unbelievable?

niewiarygodny, does it mean unbelievable? Loosly translated to English could it mean incredible? I have found several meanings, but I'm looking for a Polish word translation for incredible, but niewiargody is the easiest to pronunce for a Dutch-Irish American. Is niewiarygodny close enough to mean incredible as a synonym for unbelievable?

As in the adjective "niesamowity", the meaning of "niewiarygodny" has transformed.
Originally, the pair of words (wiarygodny and niewiarygodny) meant:
wiarygodny => godny wiary => trustworthy, credible, reliable
niewiarygodny => untrustworthy, not credible, unreliable

Now:
niewiarygodny => incredible, unbelievable, mind blowing but you can still use it in its original meaning, depending on the context.
