What is the difference between ptąk and ptasie?


Ptak (there's no any 'ą' here) is simply the noun 'bird'. "Ptasie" is the neuter singular and not masculine-personal plural (any plural that is not denoting a group of people that has at least one man) for "ptasi", which would be the word "bird" treated as an adjective. You can check it here

I believe you most probably encountered this word on a box looking more or less like this? ;)


Thanks! Yes! I did see it on those boxes. There is also a cafe in Poland called 'Ptasie Radio', which as it turns out is also the name of a childrens' rhyme.
