Polish Word Wednesday 2

A weekly service where I teach you some Polish.*

brat–[brahtnoun; male sibling, brother

Example Sentence: Moj brat na imie Robert. (My brother is named Robert.)

Notes: Sisters of the world, fell free to call your brother a ‘brat’ then claim you were speaking Polish when he tattles to your mom that you called him mean name. (When I was very little, I had a t-shirt with shiny letters spelling ‘brat’. There is a lovely photo of me wearing it and posing like a, well, a brat. Family legend has it that I told strangers that only my brothers could call me that.) Also, do not call Polish sausage ‘brat’ because that’s German. Here it is called kielbasa, and my kids adore it.

Raise a toast to your brat!

What words or phrases are you dying to see me explain? Let me know, and you just may see your word in my words next week.

*Be advised that I know less Polish than just about everyone. Please do not use my lessons to actually speak Polish.
