Somebody was encouraging me to shout "Bartek świrus" or something like that (I'm guessing the spelling). I refused because Bartek is a friend, and I'm fairly sure this is something rude. We often swear at eachother for fun, but only if we know what we are saying.

If you don't mind!

świr (the word 'świrus' originates from) means 'nutcase, nut, nuts'

Nutcase Bartek would be the translation

it isn't insulting really, świrus has a positive feeling to it as in calling 'crazy' someone who's positively crazy, therefore amusing

Thanks. We've said 'po jebane' quite a lot, usually referring to my fellow non-Poles.

pojebany/a/e (m., f., n.) is already quite vulgar, i think ot translates to 'f... up'
in fact there's quite a number of words that translate to it

I realised it had an f- word in there and somehow meant madman/nutter/mentalist!

Pala is also a term for a fail grade after an examination.

I think one or two of my teachers may have used the English equivalent(s) after some of my exams.

kurwa mash or something similar gets thrown about a lot by the poles I know. They all say its the equivelant of our - for fcuks sake

Been learning polish for about 2 years now and get most of whats said in polish and if I didn't know the swearing I would only know about half of what was being said around me. The polish lads and indeed some of the lasses working over here in our factories and whatnot swear like bloody troopers. And because the english around them dont know what there saying its given them a lisence to swear much more here than they would in Poland.

Next proof for that polish ppl which are working in foreign country arent so educated as u all wanted tell me in another thread.


btw who cares about swear words? Words are words. Thay cant be bad. Everyone has got his own style of talking and express himself. Some ppl use those words, others not. Thats all. I never make any scandal when someone swears. No big deal dudes!

Wow, that's actually a good-thing..with not having a wide swearing vocabulary in Poland; or any country. :)

-Huh, it's good to know these things.. so, if I ever travel over to Poland; I will know if someone doesn't like me. XD :D loll

I've got some more for ya:
ssij!- go cocksuck
idź się pierdol- go knockboots
Jesteś palcem robiony- you're an *******


..I kind of thought, there would be more swears or vulgar words used, then what was mentioned here.. Just like one of the guests mentioned:

Quoting: Guest
But try not using the swearwords, maybe we-polish swear but we don't like foreigners who do that


You have to be a local resident / been brought-up there: in order to learn what the other swears are., to etc. It's one of those "many-things", you have to be there for awhile or sometime.. until you can understand more, or grasp it better.

I never knew there were so many Polish words for different numbers of stars in a row.

Like yourself... my dad spoke Polish when he wanted to swear... I clearly remember "sha clef" (spelling is probably way off) on a regular basis... I was young... when I asked him what it meant... he told me "dogs blood... which is a really bad thing in Poland"...

Did you ever get a response top your question that included sha clef?

sry, those are english words, ass. :D
shekinahlove   Sep 3, 2007, 03:13am  #443

ok...so Ive heard my grandmother using this word...and I understand it means *dog's blood*....what I dont get, is why that is considered offensive/a swear word.
Why??? Doesnt make much sense to me...
is there some origin behind it, to where it has some deeper meaning?
then again i supposed saying ***** off* technically doesnt make much sense either...if someone literally translated it in another language it means *have sex off*? so....what does *dogs blood* REALLY mean in this context???

On a funnier note...I found a website... double u double u double u dot psia-krewdot pl
Its a dogs blood bank! LOL
I wonder if having the website named that would be liked calling Planned Parenthood ***** Safely*
???

My grandma use to always say (alabeete) not spelled right but phonically correct and I was called little (Geco) also not spelled right. What do those 2 words mean. I was told the geco was devil but just checking to see if they were teasing me. Thanks

geco ??? maybe = dziecko = a child

beete ? maybe = bic ( c with an accent) = hit

otherwise i have no idea what "alabeete" is
sandy222   Sep 10, 2007, 05:52pm  #446

My grandma was bordering on senile and when she was yelling"alabeete" at us she was chasing us with a broom thought maybe that might help with putting into context when she used the word lol.

Just jeard the saying again and I stand corrected it sound like this"


MA T HULL HET TA SHULL CLEFF


Thanks sorry about the first post



I'm not too fluent in Polish,being like fourth generation Polish, but my mother used to try to teach me words that she thought she knew:

I'm wondering if Hull Het Ta (sounds like ha-leta) , is what my mom says means something bad happened, like oh sh*t!!, oh f^ck!!, son of a b*tch!!, etc.)

and the shull cleff is the word that means dog's blood-it's not really swearing to us, but it very bad to say to polish people.

Am I making any sense to anyone? lol Please correct me if I am wrong.
PIE   Sep 11, 2007, 03:32pm  #448

You all are in error in regard to Polish words such as, chuj, kurwa, jeb, pierd, pizda, pezda, because in Proto-Indo European these words really means as follows:

*sk(h)woj-, needle, thorn (PIE origin of Polish chuj and all derivates)
*k'er-, head, horn (PIE origin of Polish kurwa and all derivates)
*jebh- to copulate (PIE origin of Polish jeb and all derivates)
*perd- to break wind (PIE origin of Polish pierd and all derivates)
*pizda- vulva (PIE origin of Polish pizda and all derivates)
*pezd- to break wind (PIE origin of Polish pezda and all derivates)

Proofs here: h t t p : / / w w w . u t e x a s . e d u / c o l a / c e n t e r s / l r c / i e l e x / P o k o r n y M a s t e r - X . h t m l

In PIE these words were only functional names, but never swear words, because in PIE there are no alternatives to these words that might have the the same meanings.

They have a long and interesting history,
but proto-Indo-Europeans must have needed to shout something
when they stubbed their toe or caught their finger on a *sk(h)woj-

so whats your point?
Every word in every language had somesort of history and didnt probably start as a coarse word.
For example so popular "F*CK" was at first a name of the law act introduced in england somwhere in the medieval ages it had something to do with breeding.
