POST
Eric: Listen again to Maciek's post.
Marzena: No i noga w gipsie.
Eric: "And a leg in the cast!"
Marzena: (SLOW) No i noga w gipsie. (Regular) No i noga w gipsie.
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "and."
Marzena: no i
Eric: Yet again another way of saying "and." It’s used mostly at the beginning of a sentence and is closer in meaning to "and then" or "and finally." Listen again- "and " is...
Marzena: (SLOW) no i (REGULAR) no i
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "a leg in the cast."
Marzena: noga w gipsie.
Eric: This expression literally means "a leg in a cast." Notice that the first part meaning "leg" can be replaced with any other body part without changing the latter part. Listen again- "a leg in the cast" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) noga w gipsie. (REGULAR) noga w gipsie.
Eric: All together, "And a leg in the cast!"
Marzena: No i noga w gipsie.
