I’m sitting here listening to Melech Mechaya, and I feel pretty chuffed becuase …
… I’ve fixed all known bugs in the randomly generated Polish crosswords. Happy days!
The key phrase here is ‘all known‘ as it is very rare for any piece of computer code not to have any hidden ‘gremlins’ within. Sad but true.
Now, these crosswords are currently generated from a list of two hundred or so words that I have written down over the past year.
As my Polish is still at a beginner level (sigh), the majority of the words in the list are the sort of words you learn when starting out with a language: cat, dog, black, white and so on. These are perfect for beginners.
I will add the remainder of my ‘known’ words soon. As luck would have it, I’ve kept a list of words that I know, should know, or maybe have learnt during the last year.
I’m interested in seeing how many Polish words I’ve managed to retain during this time period.
I’m thinking it could be as many as ….
…. five or six hundred????
This equates to around two a day!! Hmmm. While I’m not the fastest language learner in the world, this seems rather slow. Ho hum.
