What's your favourite Polish word?

"Gazeta Wyborcza" has prepared a survey. You can send them your own ideas, of course there's no one good answer. I find it a wonderful initiative. I agree with some of the GW's readers that Polish words connected with love and care sound warm and beautiful:

czułość, pieszczota, miś, przytulać.

But what about funny ones?

I love Central Poland words which end in -ak:

zwierzak, bydlak, szczeniak.

They are easier than also not bad zwierzę, bydlę and szczenię, so we replace them.

Steffen Möller who speaks Polish fluently in one of the interviews tells what are his favourite Polish words (I fully agree): dżdżownica, rozbabrany, rozmemłany, bąbelki, ufoludek:)

There are more incredible verbs and participles especially colloquial: memłać, leźć - rozlazły, paść - spasiony, piszczeć, miąchać.

And what do you think about źdźbło, miażdżyca and durnostojka?

Please write me what Polish words do you love!
