What is your FAVORITE Polish word/phrase?

Alright, some polish words/phrases are just outrageously difficult, but fascinating. (For instance, it took me forever to be able to say ciasteczka comfortably.)

I really like how małżeństwo and prześcieradło sound (although I completely butcher the pronunciations of both of them!).

...And ciasteczko is still one of my favourites, I think it sounds cute, lol.

even simple words/phrases like dziewczynko and na zdrowie, the fact that all those scrambled-looking letters can make such simple and beautiful sounds is really amazing to me

Well, I like more "Mistrz skrzypiec z Przasnysza", especially that it is a song. Unfortunately I just can't find it sung and I've heard the melody just once myself so I wouldn't perform it either ;-)

I've heard about some English person who loved the sound of the word “cielęcina”. Come to think of it, it really does sound quite nice. If only it wasn't a name for a type of meat...

Oh, c'mon, that's just a movie and he was making it... How about some real challenge, and I'll limit it to the address only. Try saying "Gmina Parzęczew, Wytrzyszczki trzynaście" https://www.google.pl/maps/place/95-045+Wytrzyszczki/@51.9438617,19.2274111,15.05z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x471bafdac33dad07:0xe4d0ed56186d0ab3!8m2!3d51.9469962!4d19.2371429

I'm rather partial to "szklanka" and "wihajster" myself. Two of my favourite words ever. I mean, what can possibly sound better than "szklanka", even if it does sound like it ought to be the sound of a tree falling down? :)

Well, wihajster is a borrowed word from German. To be more specific - it's a whole German sentence put into a single word (Wie heisst er - How is he called). In Polish we use it when we don't know how to call something that we want to refer to (usually some kind of a switch or extended thing).

"Tam jest taki wihajster, który trzeba przekręcić" ("There is that I-don't-know-how-to-call-it-thing, that one needs to turn")

Yes, for me it's equivalent to whatchamacallit or thingamajig. Or whatchamathingummy, perhaps. :D
