"You are drinking again!"
And what about "ponownie" and "na nowo". How do they differ from zn?w* and from each other?
Woah, that's a hard question. I feel the difference, but... "ponownie" just seems to be "again", but it suits some sentences and it doesn't suit some others. I wouldn't use it here.
But I googled a sentence "Gortat znów zagrał dobrze, ale Wizards ponownie przegrali" and while this seems more natural, I probably wouldn't bat an eye if they switched the 'again' words between the clauses.
"na nowo" is more or less "from the beginning", kinda like "from the scratch".
"Po wypadku, musiał na nowo uczyć się chodzić" (After the accident, he had to learn how to walk again"
They have the same meaning but znowu is a long form and it is used at the beginning and at the end of sentences. The short forms like znów are used inside sentences. Znowu and znów are not the only words following this rule. Here another few examples: Dzisiaj - dziś (today); Tobie - ci (to you); Mnie - mi (to me)
That's not true - znów and znowu can be used interchangeably.
Does it sound really strange to put 'znowu' at the end, e.g. pijesz znowu? Is there any kind of rule on this?
it would not be completely incorrect, but that just sounds bad. way better is "znowu pijesz?".
Hard to state a rule, I'd say that what you complain about is more the "drinking" part, which "again" intensifies (?)... anyway, maybe it's not wrong, but sounds a lot less natural to my ear.
Well, from the moderators side, there are three votes for 'that doesn't really sound natural'... not without some more context, at least.
That's actually one of the starred answers, definitely should have been accepted...
Well, we had a similar question recently and we had three moderators 'against' vs one active Polish native 'for'. So the opinion that it's not very natural has won.
I selected "Znów pijecie!, but it said I was wrong,as shown below. Yet here it says only the one answer is right. I am confused.
Correct solutions: Znowu pijesz!, Znów pijecie!
If it was a multiple choice question, you have to choose ALL the correct answers, not just one.
I put in exactly what the correct translation says "Znów pijecie!, Znowu pijecie!" and I got it incorrect
Wait, do you mean that you actually put two variants at the same time? Well, that's wrong... you should put one... or sometimes some bug makes it reject the correct answer.
Looks like a copy of the English word order. That's not a likely thing to say in Polish, I'd say.
I see that this question has been answered already a while ago. Sorry and thank you for replying :)
