Ok, zgrubienie works just like zdrobnienie (dimunitive) - you have extra endings that are being added to words, but it gives them a mostly negative meaning, or in some cases it underlines "greatness" or "big size". The endings will be for example -isko, -izda, - al, -ska. How about we use my name again ;). It would be Justysica or Justysizda, and depending in what context you use them they will be either negative, or just playful/sarcy. More examples: nose(nos) - nochal(big nose, ugly nose), zamek(castle) - zamczysko(huge castle), król(king) - królisko(big king), osioł- oślisko(huge donkey, ugly donkey). As you have probably noticed, by adding a dimunitive or a zgrubienie (not sure what that would be in English), not only you get a few extra letters at the end, but often the whole word looks different and some letters that were originally in it get replaced by others. yet again, hope it helps!
