Hey guys:) can anyone tell me what the word "ciumek" means? i think it's slang cause i can't really find it in any dictionary or translator .

"ciumek" is an informal word which derives from "ciumkac", It means to kiss or to produce kissing sound. Ciumek would then mean a person who kisses or is kissed, and it is likely an endearing term , except when context may clearly indicate otherwise, or in some slang expressions such as "ciumkać bigosa" (to masturbate)

Question does "o co chodzi" mean "what is going on here"?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think "O co chodzi?" means "What does that refer to?" or, "How do you mean that?"

"O co chodzi?"

I'd translate that as:

What is the matter?
What's going on?
What do you want/need?

You have withered like a herring

and tell me what it means?

Probably you lost some weight or something

Le Je BuBu

Maybe- idzie bobo? or lezie bobo?
Here comes the boogyman

bobo? Bobo is more like baby.

could someone please translate this for me to english - Zapomnialam ci powiedziec, ze swietnie dzis wygladasz:):)

I forgot to tell you, you look fantastic today

Yes it is but you also say Bo cie bobo weżmie( boogyman will take you) or straszy bobo
Very old people use to use this word for ghost and judging from the word lezie it is a bit archaic.

Bo cie bobo weżmie

I'm not very old but not exactly young anymore. Still, I never heard that one.
Is that a particular region of Poland where you may hear that?

BOBO to po polsku straszydlo, potwor.

przynajmniej w krakowskim, straszono dzieci, "przyjdzie bobo i Cie zje."

Hi, if im writing happy valentines day to my boyfriend do i write: milych walentynek or milego walentego?????
12 Feb 2008  #19

it sounds a bit weird but some Polish say so. I would rather write:
Kocham Cię haha (I love you)
Jestem Twoją Walentynką (I'm your Valentin) : )

Good luck!

Rest in peace
It means Spoczywaj w spokoju. You say that when someone die.

I really need some help. My boyfriend of 4 months has the letters DEL(possibly an I) tattooed on his left knuckles. I finally go the courage up to ask him about it last night. He said it's missing the last letter and all he will tell me is that it's a polish saying. I really want to find out what it could be and what it means. Any help would be great. Thanks!

I am doing something in memory of my grandparents and i don't know polish very well but I really need to know which would be the best way to say/ write " They are resting in peace"
