One of the most confusing words for me in Polish is the shortest. The Polish word for ‘Yes’ is ‘tak’. The Polish word for ‘no’ is ‘nie’. Ok that is easy. However, more common than ‘yes’ or ‘tak’ ,I hear, the word ‘Yeah’, which in Polish is pronounced or said ‘no’. If I would ask a girl to the movies and she says ‘no’ in Polish this means ‘yes’, or ‘yeah sure’. To add to the confusion I speak Polish, at a reasonable level. Most of my conversations are a mix of Polish and English. So I get confused often when I hear ‘no’, because there is little context for a one word answer. Lucky the accent for ‘no’ which really means ‘yeah’ or ‘yes’ is different than the ‘no’ meaning ‘no’. Usually I ask for clarification so I do not get myself in trouble.
