But I thought the "E z ogonkiem" had a pronunciation very similar to "e" when it ends a word?
Wiktionary has this: (verbs end with same sound)
będę = [ˈbɛ̃n̪d̪ɛ] .......... będzie = [ˈbɛ̃ɲd͡ʑɛ]
There are two issues: how someone speaks and what you hear. There may be several different ways of transcription and it is not always easy to find a consensus.
Here you have some samples of spoken Polish:
How many times was "pierd....ć" or a variation of it used in that clip? haha I don't know much, but I at least can recognize that word.
What's the difference between Psa and Pies? I thought one was the plural form but they use both as singular
Because both are singular. The words change depending on their function in the sentence. "psa" and "pies" are different cases.
"pies" is Nominative - the basic, dictionary form. It's mostly used for the subject of the sentence.
"psa" is Accusative (and Genitive). Accusative is used for the direct object of the sentence. Almost all verbs that you learn at the beginning of this course need Accusative.
I know this is a Polish course, not an English one but the "correct" answer – dog does not write – is not correct English. The sentence has to begin with an article. However, would the phrase in Polish mean that dogs are not capable of writing ? In which case, "dogs do not write" should be a good translation
Of course, the answer without the article is unacceptable - removed, thanks.
No, that's not a generalization like "Dogs don't write", this really should use plural. Just one dog.
I put "a dog can not write" which is apparently wrong, but i had a question before that went someting like "czy widzisz dzieci?" Which meant "can you see children?" So whats the difference?
Complementing mixhal's comment: "pisać" is "to write", but you have to inflect this verb, hence:
"Pies nie pisze" (and not "Pies nie pisać"),
"Psy nie piszą" = "The dogs don't write",
"Ja piszę" = "I write",
Thanks, I cannot remember what I wrote now as it was a week ago, but I think I must have used the wrong verb ending.
That's a bit too much. Either he isn't writing right now, or generally does not write, but perhaps he can.
