Ahh, yeah. I was in Electrical Eng - about 80% men (apparently gets up near 90% when looking at power engineering). I had a mate in Materials Eng that said it was about 50/50 there.
I was in Civil Eng AKA Building 50/50, I know Environment AKA water and heating 60% women,
Ahh, yep. I've heard civil is quite Female-dense too. Apparently Chemical isn't bad, but Mechanical and Electrical are complete sausage fests. At least at my uni (they didn't offer Environmental Eng, so I can't be too sure about that).
Hmm so I should have gone into civil or environmental engineering after all xD
"False friend" detected: in Russian жадный [zhadnyj] means greedy. So, "I don't see a greedy woman here")))
Right. The real cognate for zhadnyj (greedy, selfish) is żądny (eager, avid.)
"Any woman" is not very good English. We would either say "I don't / can't see a single woman here" or "I can't see any women here". The only context I would use "any" with a singular "woman" is in a sentence like "Any woman could do it". However, "I don't see any woman" sounds really wrong. I think the closest translation is "I don't see a single woman here".
They mean the same, 'tutaj' is a bit more emphatic... and 'tu' doesn't really sound well at the end of the sentence.
The answer at the top of this discussion is "I don't see a woman here"which is right. However,in the Android app, tapping the word blocks marks as correct "I don't see any woman here" which is, of course, wrong as it would be "a woman" or "any women".
What? "any woman" is the best answer, given the fact that Polish used "żadnej". You point out that you do not see a single woman here. Especially if someone claimed that they did.
"A single woman", yes. A native English speaker would never say "any woman" in this sentence though.
It seems that 'not a single woman' may actually be the best solution. It will be the default now.
The given translation is "I do not see a woman here". If this is correct, why use żadnej? Why not Nie widzę tu kobiety.
Good question. I changed the default to 'any woman', it's definitely a lot closer.
