We use a lot of loanwords, quite universal for European languages: weekend, judo, pub... But when it comes to coma...

Have you ever been to Rzym, Wiedeń or Akwileja? Check twice, you might have. Here is an awesome map showing which names of cities in western Europe have official Polish translation.

Have you heard that the custom of singing Christmas carols is still very much alive in Poland?
The most popular are the old and traditional ones, like “Cicha noc” (Polish version of “Silent Night”) but today I’d like to introduce you to a modern one.
“Uciekali (They were fleeing)" was originally a part of a musical called “Metro” (which has been very popular on Polish stages since its premiere in 1991), so it’s not typical church music, but at the same time it feels much closer to the core of Christmas celebration than an average seasonal pop hit.
The song was written as a gift from the main character to the girl he fell in love with. It focuses on the human aspect of the Nativity and describes the hardships of the Holy Family fleeing to Egypt in such a way that it’s easy to identify with them.

Oh, those Polish homonyms!

1. Przekładać = to move something from place to place (or from time to time, e.g. przekładać test).
2. Przekładać = to translate (especially literature).
3. Przekładać = to put something between parts of other thing (eg. przekładać ciasto kremem)

But
przekład = translation

and only that!

P.S. Stanisław Barańczak was an awesome translator (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanis%C5%82aw_Bara%C5%84czak)

Zamierzałam zaczekać z linkowaniem tego bloga, aż uda mi się stworzyć dłuższy post o obcokrajowcach piszących w internecie o Polsce, ale jest tak dowcipny i kreatywny i pełen wnikliwych obserwacji, że nie mogę się powstrzymać. Panie i Panowie, Polisher - polecam z całego serca!
