Wow, hello, Indo-European relicts! są = sunt in Latin, sind in German, суть in something before Russian (Old Church Slavonic?) I'm so profane in these things, but I love seeing this.

Polish has a large influence from Italian and Latin generally.

Why 'before Russian'? We use the word суть sometimes.

Но слишком редко, чтобы считать его частью парадигмы слова "быть"

I can't figure out when to use the ending -i, -y, or -e for adjectives that go with nouns in masculine/plural. Is there a rule that would help me remember?

Re Polish plural adjectives: "In plural, the form is the same as neuter singular, unless referring specifically to men or people in general." eg singular adj. {smaczny, smaczna. smaczne} > plural adj. {smaczne}.

...but Polish plural personal masculine endings take -i, or with a root change, -y, eg singular (personal) adjective {czarny, czarna, carne} > plural personal masculine adjective "czarni" & {biały, biała, białe} > "białi". BUT, with a root change, singular (personal) adjective {wysoky, wysoka, wysoke} > "wysocy" & {drogy, droga, drogie > "drodzy".

what's the difference between sa and to?

February 21, 2017


"to" may be used in an "X is Y" sentence, when both X and Y are noun phrases and use Nominative.

"są" means "(they) are" - it's the 3rd person plural of 'to be'. If in an X is Y sentence Y was a noun phrase, it would need to be in Instrumental. But as here it's just an adjective, it stays in Nominative.
