"Stada baba" is definitely old lady. And I don't think it's meant in a kind way. When I was too slow for my mother she'd say I was a stada baba, but when I said it to my grandmother (not knowing what it meant), everybody's jaw dropped. Hey, I just thought it meant slow! :)

And my non-polish-speaking father gets a kiss whenever he says "da me buj".

Sorry to interrupt here, but I'm actually a librarian chasing down a polish curse word. My stepfather (who spoke only Polish until the age of 8 or 9) recalls a word he used with consequence. When he was about 6 years old, he asked his mother what a particular word meant -- she immediately gave him a smack and began yelling. He never did find out what it meant and has always wondered. I am have not studied the language, and can only transcribe it by its sound to English ears. It's pronounced "checlef" or possibly "chelav" or "calev" (with a soft 'sh' beginning). Can anyone help me out? :)

thanks!
Erin

Wow, thanks everyone. This is great to know...is it at all like a swear word or is it used as a racial or social class epithet? I'm wondering how/why my stepdad would have been smacked for it...

my thanks!!

It always sounded to me like people were saying shull kref polara. Which I believe means your mother has dogs blood in her.

it's "psia krew, cholera". Those words go hand and hand together.
"cholera" literally means "cholera"

I find all this very strange, in all the time I've been learning Polish I really haven't wanted to learn how to swear, I think "fcuk off" is universal...anyway I really dont think I'll ever have the need to swear at a Polish person, I dont go about telling english peeps to f off or use bad lang in conversation.....sorry just my 2 p worth...

Zajebista/zajebiscie/zajebisty are slogan, swear words. Actually you could also translate it using only one word: "great" or "awsome," but since the term "zajebista" derive from the swear words "jebac" [to fcuk] or "zajebac" [to fcuk up, fcuk], the best Polish translation is "fcuking great" or "fcuking awsome."
