Dziewczyna means both girl and girlfriend.
I respect forwardness
By the context, I would say that only could be girlfriend
Tak. Mieszka w Kanadzie, i uczęszcza do innej szkoły.
Could you say Czy masz dziewczynę?
Yes, you could.
What if you were asking someone if they had a girl? (Daughter)
Then you would ask if they had a córka.
Ok so it's used as Girlfriend but never as daughter..
Well, I think you can use word 'dziewczynka' in that context. Meaning 'little girl'. I'm not a native though
I guess if two people were talking about their children, then "dziewczynka" is possible, but "córka" (daughter) is safer.
Mam, ale ona jeszcze tego nie wie.
So girl and girlfriend are the same word? That has a possibility to be very awkward and very wrong...
I can't think of any context where this would lead to a misunderstanding.
It needs to be 'someone's dziewczyna' to mean a girlfriend, and for people that would say "my girl" about their daughter, that's very unlikely in Polish. Maybe for plural daughters.
