One thing I'm curious about, as a Polish-American. I've grown up always calling my grandmother "bushia" and grandfather "dziadziu" (spelling might be off) but the direct translations are different here. Are my terms region-specific or perhaps just a weird thing in my family?
"busia", as I imagine. These are very very... geez, I cannot find a word. They are very emotional, show closeness, and are also quite childish. Which doesn't mean that they cannot be used by an adult ;) Totally non-standard, a personal choice. Just like 'nan' is not a standard word.
"dziadziuś" is probably more common, "dziadziu" seems like the Vocative of "dziadzio", but I guess it can be considered a form of it's own. "busia" is something that I may have encountered two times in my life.
