.... and nothing. :):):)

Ha, I got it by googling concrete monument dome inscription. It is a mausoleum to honour the victims of Majdanek death camp killed by Germans during WW2.

I didn`t know it coz there is another more spectacular monument in the same place which is more popular in encyclopedias and media:

So this is a monument.

It is, but it's more than just a monument.

I also added: mausoleum. :)

Yes. Well done. I knew you would get it quite quickly.

concrete monument dome inscription.

The inscription reads ' Los nasz dla was przestrogą.' Let our fate be a warning to you. Very chilling.

another more spectacular monument in the same place

I didn't choose that one because I knew it was the more well-known monument.

Again I must say how clever it is. :):):

Yes, chilling, but we know how useless are such inscriptions coz humans perpetuate the same horrid things endlessly.

One from me:

Primary school student`s notebook shows food vocabulary. What is the major spelling mistake he/she made copying the words from the black/greenboard???
Hint - by major I mean a really serious one!!!

Yes. We will end up destroying ourselves because we have learnt nothing from history.

I can't see anything that major.

There should be a 'z' instead of the 'c' after the 'r in wieprzowina.

Vegetables is spelt incorrectly.

I presume 'Letis' is to show pronunciation of lettuce.

Hey, your pessimism throws me down into the dumps even further now! Why are you doing it to me????? :):)

should be a 'z' instead of the 'c' after the 'r in

No, it is z interconnected with r.
Besides, if it was c, it still wouldn`t be major. :):):)

I presume 'Letis' is to show pronunciation of lettuce.

Of course. It is called the phonetic transcript. :):):)

Vegetables is spelt incorrectly.

No, it isn`t. Look closer - the mistake has been corrected. :):)

Wow! My riddle is hard. :):):)

PS. Hint - a major mistake means the one which changes the meaning of the word. :):):)

Sadly, quite possibly true..... but what do you learn from history?
Stand up and fight or stand down and be subjucated?

subjucated

Subjugated. What is your British-based education???? Let me guess - primary school! hahahaha

You are close...... Think harder... :):):)

You're just lucky I guess :)

Yes. I forgot it's a digraph.

Think harder...

That could be interpreted as leer rather than beer.

Still, think harder...... :):):) Warm warm major mistake change of meaning warm warmer and .....

Are we still talking about the word beer? At a push I can also see rice/mice.

Yes,we are.

I'm stumped. You can only replace the 'b' in beer with the letters d, j, p, s, if it's not veer or leer.
OP pawian 224 | 24,500
28 Apr 2024 #227
You can only replace the 'b' in beer

Do not focus on b so much. Try other letters. I said there is a clear spelling mistake, while you concentrate on carelessly written letters.

And think of PC all the time!!!!

if it's not veer or leer.

And think of foods all the time, too!

from the black/greenboard???

I see:

"lettuce * |letis|

pork - wierprzowina

beer

potatoes

rice

vegatables" (though you say it's now vegetables)

hmmm since when is 'beer' food? especially in elementary school?

maybe the word was bean?

I see:

Maf, don`t believe your eyes now!!! Use your intuition!

hmmm since when is 'beer' food? especially in elementary school?

Twice exactly!!!

Now, what is the spelling mistake which altered the meaning completely ???

Guys and guyesses, I must admit I am flabbergasted you still can`t guess it after so many clues and being so close as you already are. The easiest riddles are the most difficult it seems. :):):)

spelling mistake

The phonetics are very wrong. Should be /ˈlɛtɪs/ although schwa is also acceptable for the second vowel albeit rare.
OP pawian 224 | 24,500

The phonetics

This is primary aka elementary school, not university. :):):):)

That's what I thought too. 'Letis' is very wrong indeed - especially for a Polish learner of English. Letys would be nearer the mark.

The imperfectly formed letters in the child's handwriting leave a margin for doubt eg. rice could be read as vice, but I don't see anything that conclusively proves the child made an error in transcription. Pray enlighten us.

This is primary aka elementary school,

We learnt the phonetic alpahbet (or a version of it) in the first year of primary school, aged 4/5.

Letys

That's how I'd do it for a Polish learner.

Leer is of course a word, and that's the only mistake in English, apart from in vegetables and it looks like they've corrected it. In any case, b can be written with an open loop and that would bre consistent with the way the kid writes p. Old-fashioned though. And wieprzowina is clumsily written but fine for a primary age kid.

I don't see anything major.
OP pawian 224 | 24,500
28 Apr 2024 #236
I don't see anything

Amasing!!! You type leer yourself and still can`t see the mistake???

he child's handwriting leave a margin for doubt

No margin in case of our clear mistake.

I don't see anything

Yes, I can see that. Lazy Sunday afternooner, you've got no mind to worry
You close your eyes and drift away-a hahahaha

enlighten us.

Not yet. It is too easy to provide the answer so quickly.

Could read leer or equally beer which would be consistent with the poor and outdated style of handwriting.

Beer is out of question in primary school while leer is a mistake.
Come on, guys and gyesses, guess it at last coz I am experiencing a huge trauma now. :(:(:(:(
