Hi all,

Just need help on a couple of nicknames my late grandmother used for old relatives: We had a left handed cousin somewhere along the line that was called something like "shmy-uh" meaning "Lefty" according to her. What is the word and what does it mean?

The other one I was wondering about was something she used to call old ladies that she was friends with, sounding something like "chuh-cha."

Thanks for any help!

'May this be the starlight of my love that e'er burns bright for thee and ne'er shall be extinguished.'

To moje tłumaczenie tego zdania. -:)

[Moved from]: Suspect and suspicion

I believe the construction in Polish 'to suspect sb of sth' is 'podejrzewać kogoś o coś'. But how would a Pole express the following?
'King Krak suspected that the dragon was responsible for...' Possibly as follows?
'Król Krak podejrzewał, że smok odpowiadał za...' or
'Król Krak miał podejrzenie, że smok odpowiadał za... '
Any help in this matter from a Polish person would be greatly appreciated. I am currently doing a homework assignment on 'Legendy Krakowskie - Legenda o Smoku'

'Król Krak podejrzewał, że smok odpowiadał za...' or
'Król Krak miał podejrzenie, że smok odpowiadał za... '

literally : kochanej pamięci...
I would rather say : pamięci it's more natural in Polish i guess

Seems good enough to me. Moja miłości is also possible but may get a strange reaction.

.does this refer to a man and how does the word change if it refers to a female?

its a male form but you can use it refering to a woman. but it also has female version - szajbuska. you can use tham boyh.

These are the initials of three Wise Men / biblical Magi: Kacper, Melchior and Baltazar ( K+M+B, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar), written with the blessed chalk above the door on the day of Epiphany (6th Jan). It is supposed to bring the good luck and Lord's blessings to the house.

[Moved from]: "At the occasion of" in Polish


I would like to know how you say in Polish the expression "At the occasion of...".
Someone who is learning Polish told me it was "Z okazji + [noun of the occasion in dopełniacz]". For example, I need to write to somebody:

"At the occasion of Andrzejki, I would like to tell you..."

Thanks in advance
