POST
Eric: Listen again to Maciek's post.
Marzena: Ciepełko i słoneczko!
Eric: "Warm and sunny!"
Marzena: (SLOW) Ciepełko i słoneczko! (Regular) Ciepełko i słoneczko!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "warm."
Marzena: Ciepełko
Eric: This actually translates to the noun meaning “warmth.” It’s presented here in its diminutive form which shows the positive feeling of the writer. Listen again- "warm" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) Ciepełko (REGULAR) Ciepełko
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "and sun."
Marzena: i słoneczko
Eric: Same as with the noun above, the word "sun" is also in its diminutive form to match the mood of the whole phrase. This is a very common way of writing in social media, even among adults. Listen again- "and sun" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) i słoneczko (REGULAR) i słoneczko
Eric: All together, "Warm and sunny!"
Marzena: Ciepełko i słoneczko!
