You wanted to say "niektórzy mężczyźni lubią mężczyzn" or "któryś mężczyzna lubi mężczyzn" we don't use któryś with plural, and accusative is mężczyzn
hahaha, noo :) 'któryś' is an indefinite pronoun and means 'one (of them/those)' - used when you want to indicate someone or something out of a larger group but you do not tell precisely which one (it's either unknown or it doesn't matter at the moment)
e.g.: Któryś z nich rozmawia przez telefon. - One of them is talking on the phone.
also, notice that this pronoun changes dependently on gender, number or cases (as regular nouns) - i.e. któryś - masculine form, któraś - feminine
Anyone else having a hard time telling the difference between ź and z in some words?
That's kinda the same like: n - ń sz - ś or many other consonants before vowels: me - mie pe - pie be - bie
It can be read as a general statement, it can be read as "some particular group of men". It doesn't specify that these are "all men".
so what's the difference between lubi and lubią they're both for "they" right
Lubi is used in third person (he, she, it/on, ona, ono), lubią in third person PLURAL (they/oni).
Doesn't "man" translate to Mężczyzna? (note the accents) Why, then, does the third z have an accent over it?
It does, but when it turns into plural, -zna turns into -źni. I'd discourage thinking of this as an 'accent', it's a different sound, palatalized Z.
Because "love" and "like" are totally different things. Well, unless your native language is Russian, at least ;)
My native languages are Russian and Ukrainian;) "lubią"means only "like' and not "love", yes?
Well, I will assume that you dont mean the "t" in "kobiety", because it's explicitly written... but it's the only "t" in this sentence.
My guess is that you mean the sound in the middle of "mężczyźni". "cz" could be considered a bit similar to "t" and sometimes may be transcribed into English as "tsch". Still, it's very different.
I'm just reminding that there's nothing romantic/sexual in the verb "lubić" itself, plus the sentence doesn't have any word like "all" :) But I know what you meant, of course. Happy New Year to you too! :)
Men is plural of man. So they like, not "likes". A man likes[...], Men like[...]
