"widzisz" and "mokro". Meaning "to see" and "wet" respectively. Now, that's what Google translate says...and those words I've run across in communication from Poles (in Poland).

However, Wiktionary doesn't have those as forms of the, is Wiktionary wrong? Or is there a different meaing for the words?

Look up widzieć and mokry - these are basic forms.
Widzisz is "you see" and mokro means "it's wet".
Precise meaning always depends on the context.

I always get mixed up between widzieć and widać. Also wydzierać which I mix up with widać.

mokro means "it's wet".

Hmm...I'm not seeing it on the Wiktionary declension table ( But, that would explain it if it means "it is wet".

Would this apply to other words as well? Like "sucho" for "it is dry" and "choro" for "it is ill"?

Sucho yes, also chłodno, gorąco etc, "It's ill" isn't something most people would need to say.

Głodno, chłodno i do domu daleko.

Hungry, it's chilly and my home is far away.
A sad statement sometimes said in a desperate situation - even if you are home..
It may apply to many people nowadays.

It doesn't mean "to see" it means 'you see' or 'you are seeing'.


It's wet

E.g, Nie widzisz że dziecko ma mokro? Can`t you see the baby is wet?

However, I would rather replace see with hear, it is closer to real life: Can`t you hear the baby is wet?

This child from 2010

But you can`t deny the fact that new babies are born every day and they can be wet??? Ha?
