  5. "Kelner, moja zupa jest zimna…

"Kelner, moja zupa jest zimna!"

Translation:Waiter, my soup is cold!

December 23, 2015



My brain wants to translate zimna as wintry, which is making some of these sentences overly amusing to me 8-o :D


Zimą jest zimno ;) (it's cold in winter). Wintry would be zimowy. There is a word that is similar in other Slavic languages - chłodny (like Russian холодный, Czech chladný) but it's not as cold as zimny.


I figured it was wrong, it's just my natural inclination - if I was presented with this sentence without having done any other Polish, my initial translation would be 'my soup is wintry', which kind of cracks me up ;)


Well, at least there's not a fly in it! :-)
