    Owl = sova

    Orly owl = ?ta stvarno sova

    Look! This is interesting; in English both words start with O and in Croatian, the all start with S (or ? which is very simillar). :p

    Is that a link or just some completely coincidental circumstance?

    completely coincidental circumstance = skroz slucajna okolnost :p

    It is not all the same letter, but only 2 words...oh well. :p

    Dammit, alliteration in two languages of different family groups would have been a turnup for the books :p

    owl = sowa
    o rly = naprawde

    ^ doesn't fit


    completely coincidental circumstance = calkowicie przypadkowa okolicznosc

    ^ doesn't fit either

    What is the difference between w and v in Polish?

    Actually, there's no V in Polish. W sounds like English V, and *L with a slash* sounds similar to English W (something like Russian L).

    Yay, I finally found out what all of them Casus thingymajigies mean.

    Although I still don't understand them.

    And in English: Casus - Case or Declension.

    Nowa Era = New Era (I don't know why did they translate it this way, there's no word 'order' in it)
    Moca is a declination of Moc (the Force). Actually, the letter in the end is not A, but I can't use Polish letters here.

    I have a bad feeling about this = Mam zle przeczucia co do tego

    And you cannot say "how do you say it na Polski", there are different declinations for "translating" (na Polski) and saying something (po Polsku).

    Actualy, I thought that would be Polish. :p Raja wrote na Polski beforeand, true, it sounds the same as on Croatian so I persumed that it means the same. [face_blush]
    My mistake, though that is correct Amon, that is the way with languages.

    So, I was right [face_mischief]

    You say Polski in Croatian? So how do you say Poland?

    So I was wrong then. I thought that the missing 'j' was a spelling error. [face_blush] :p

    lj & nj are... well unique. One has to hear it to be able to understand it how they are different from l and n. :p

    Well, get your YIM with Voice working, then, so that I could hear it :p

    Anyway, I understand the problem, we've got many strange letters in Polish too.

    Two problems. I have YIM with voice but it is currently malfunctioning. (My computer is weird. He doesn't like IMs :( ) Also, yes, my mic is broken. I know I have to buy a new one but I just keep forgetting.
