POST
Eric: Listen again to Kasia's post.
Marzena: Z moim jedynym.
Eric: "With my one and only."
Marzena: (SLOW) Z moim jedynym. (Regular) Z moim jedynym.
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "with my."
Marzena: z moim
Eric: "With my" suggests that the object of this sentence is a man or another masculine noun. For a woman you would have to change the ending. Listen again- "with my" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) z moim (REGULAR) z moim
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "only, sole."
Marzena: jedynym
Eric: "Only" here is really more like "the only one". It will always refer to a man, for a woman you would have to change the ending. Listen again- "only, sole" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) jedynym (REGULAR) jedynym
Eric: All together, "With my one and only."
Marzena: Z moim jedynym.
