Translation:My room does not have an orange ceiling.
Could someone explain why it is pomarańczowego here? Is it the genitive form because it's a negative sentence? Thanks :)
Yes. It's a typical example of accusative changing into genitive in negative sentences.
"Strop" is the kind of ceiling that you see in larger buildings or caves. "Sufit" is definitely much more fitting here.
Is there a shortening for pomarańczowy?? This word just seems way too long, and i would think a language would evolve not to have such long words for just a simple adjective
I recently needed to find a shorter equivalent and my colleague suggested "oranżowy". Apparently it can work. But the fact that I needed to check if it's really a word and if it means the same says it all: it's just a fun fact ;)
That reminds me of a computer game, where the translator had to translate "homing missile", but the usual translation „pocisk samonaprowadzający” exceeded the character limit. So they made up a new word: „samotraf”.
On the other hand, I hear that Polish has "wariator" where English has "continuously variable transmission".
I'm not aware at the moment of any shorter synonyms. This is just how people call this color in Polish.
"My room has not an orange seilling". Is that not an correct sentence? This answer was wrong!
This treatment of "have" as auxiliary when it means "to possess" is dialectal. If I recall correctly, people in North of England or Scotland may say that. In more standard varieties it would be a normal verb, so you would use "doesn't have".
It's a pretty unusual variation. Nobody I know would ever say it like that; it sounds foreign or stilted.
so a ceiling is like a plant or a food like a tomato, and requires the genitive? Oh, "nie ma" requires genitive. Got it!
Why doesn't: my bedtime does not have an orange ceiling work? My (polish) wife uses pokój to describe a bedroom
Well, Wiktionary says that dach means roof and sufit means ceiling. A roof is visible from the outside looking down, and a ceiling is visible from the inside looking up. The roof and the ceiling are usually different surfaces.
