The audio file to me sounds very of given words? Playing the words individually yields a different middle word (or to my ear) than jedza? The given sound, sounds more like enzoh (for english speakers). Is this just my english ear or are they saying a different word in the audio file?

The synthesized speech is kinda distorted here. I'm native and it sounds a little weird to me, too

It almost sounds like 'jędzą' to me - which would mean 'using the shrew (nagging woman)'....

Chleb is Nominative or acccusitive? being a direct object I think it is a accusitive case!!

December 14, 2015


It is in the accusative case.

Which happens to be the same as the nominative case for masculine inanimate nouns such as "chleb" (and also for neuter nouns).

Is 'ą' a nasal vowel? Like the French word for 'year', 'an'?

January 11, 2017


Yes, it's nasal. I believe that's the same sound indeed.

Non, cela correspond au son français "on" comme dans "bonbon" It is like to the French sound "on" in "bonbon" (candy) for example

why is it jedza and not je?

September 13, 2016


Plural. "jedzą" works for 3rd person plural, "je" for 3rd person singular.

Warum wird boys in diesem Satz in der Mehrzahl geschrieben? Woran erkenne ich die Mehrzahl im polnischen?

January 2, 2016


In der Regel endet die Mehrzahl bei sächlichen Substantiven auf -a; bei männlichen und weiblichen auf -y (meist), -e (nach weichen Konsonanten) oder -i (nach g, k, Palatalen).

Am Besten zu jedem Substantiv den Plural mitlernen.... wie das Deutsch Lernende ja auch tun müssen.

Vielen Dank, sehr hilfreich! Täusche ich mich, oder sprichst du Deutsch fließend? :-)

Nun ja, ich bin in Deutschland geboren und aufgewachsen :)

Does 'dz' always represent one consonant (/d͡z/) or does it sometimes, as it sounds to me in this example, stand for two consonants? I hear jed-zą not je-d͡zą

I can't think of a situation when it's separate, and if such words exist, there surely isn't many of them.

This should translate to "The boys are eating bread" Just saying

December 14, 2017


Exactly. That's what I put and it said I was wrong.

This is an accepted answer, it should have worked. In fact, it's one of the starred answers. I made it the only starred answer now.

There are several possible translations. "The boys are eating bread" is one of them, and we accept it.

I got confused with my keyboard and wrote "Boys eat beard" XD
