When do I use tutaj and when do I use tu?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jackthebiotic

When you speak Polish (I'm a native speaker) there's not much difference. it's mostly what sounds better

I may not have read the posts, but what is the difference between "za nudno" and "zbyt nudno"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tadjanow

'Za' can always be replaced with 'zbyt', but you can't always replace 'zbyt' with 'za'. When in doubt, it's safer to use 'zbyt'.

Any chance of a simple explanation of the difference? Thanks

Does polish grammar allow "Jest tu zbyt nudno"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

Yes, but this sounds like an answer to some question. It's not that neutral.

why < jest zbyt nudno tutaj > is not accepted ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

The emphasis on 'here' doesn't seem natural.

Basically, don't put tu/tutaj at the end of the sentence unless it's really "blablablabla HERE".

(and if you really have to, at least use "tutaj")

So, emphasis falls on the end of a sentence, generally? Or is it about the word itself? Like, ciebie versus cię?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

End of the sentence, usually. Also 'ciebie' is indeed emphatic compared to 'cię'.

I put "tutai jest tez nudno" and was marked wrong but when you hover over too it does say tez...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vanessa1960

just realised that tez means too as in as well not as in too much - so answered my own question ...
