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
All polish is interesting!!!!!!!!!!!! It is amazing to listen to Polish speaking in Polish!!!!!!!!! Kocham Polska!
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+Wytrzyszczkifirstname.lastname@example.org,19.2274111,15.05z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x471bafdac33dad07:0xe4d0ed56186d0ab3!8m2!3d51.9469962!4d19.2371429
my favourites are the ones that are easy to pronounce and write :P such as ciasto... which is also a dessert... another favourite thing... yummmm. I also like ciocia, mleko, and cukier!
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")
