No, I don't own time, I'm not a Time-Lord.

Suspicious comment from someone called Starman. I'm not sure I believe you...

No, there is only one of me. That's probably a good thing, too.

Out of curiosity, how would you say "second" as in a second serving of food? What about one's second in a duel?

Food context: "dokładka".

Duel context: "sekundant".

Tak. Do zobaczenia.

FYI, I typed "Masz sekundy" and it was counted as correct. It didn't say I have a typo or anything.

We've reported this issue like a hundred times already, but it appears that the company has other priorities at the moment.

I know this is a rare translation: "Do you have THE second?" But I tried just out of curiosity and it was not accepted. But shouldn't it be? Or maybe for that translation to make sense we should say instead: "Sekundę masz?"

Maybe it would be a better translation for your sentence ;) "the second" seems pretty unlikely to me.

it does not make sence to ask in non-slavish Languages "Do you have a second" I tried to translate "Do you have a moment" because that is what I would say on English, but it was wrong


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jellei

I'm pretty sure that I've heard "Do you have a second" in English many times.

With 'a moment', you can easily say the same by asking "Masz moment?" or "Masz chwilę?"

Isn't it already implied you are talking with a person so that using "you" in this sentence is a correct /formal example but also correct would be: "Have a second?"
