How do you say the equivalent of "paesan" or "pal" in Polish? Used in the fashion of "hey paesan!" or "hey pal" which would be slang used to talk to someone you don't know well or at all. But not in the cheesy way "dude" is used by surferboys and high school kids, but like what 20something+ aged guys would say to each other.

??? good question. not being a 20 something (but around them a lot) I'd have to say that I don't think there is a neutral word like that. You might use 'hej' (pronounced like 'hey') to get someone's attention.

There are words that friends use with each other, especially 'stary' (literally "old (guy)") which has been around forever but is still used.

Other than that words used that mean 'guy' like gość (literally: guest) or koleś (literally 'friend') or even ziomal (something like 'homeboy') would be kind of confrontational when used with someone you don't know.

With people you know, the most common are either diminutive names or nicknames (which seem more widely used in Poland than in the US)

And what about kumpel? It means “mate”, if I’m not mistaken. (Of course, not in the British English “vocative” way at the end of every single sentence, but as a reference between males who know each other.) Is it closer to przyjaciel, friend?

Kumpel means 'friend' but is different from przyjaciel. It implies (as far as I can tell) long acquaintance and rapport, but not necessarily strong emotional attachment, or at least not as strong an attachment as 'przyjaciel'.

I think I've mainly heard it in the third person 'to mój kumpel' or maybe 'jesteśmy kumplami'. I don't think I've ever heard anyone use kumpel in the vocative (kumplu!). That just seems bizarre.

How do I say you look nice in Polish (complimentary), can anyone help? (to a polish woman of course) And then how do i pronounce it? i'm Scottish and find the language hard, for example I say Dzien Dobry as "Jen dough brie"

Lately in polish slang switching syllables it the words is trendy (i also use it).
For instance: "pałprzy" instead of "przypał"; or "brzedo" instead of "dobrze"- a simple "ok"

What does przypał mean? ....or what does pałprzy mean?

Does dobrze mean 'well' ?

(Just learning from the beginning sorry!)

ubzdryngolić się

ubzdryngolić się

Ohmygod I can't pronounce this! Is it just me or is this really, really hard for English people to pronounce?
