Hello
If there is a danger of an accident, How would you say in Polish: 'Look out!' or 'Be careful!'
Please provide transliteration for pronunciation help.
Thanks

    Hi, we usually say "Uważaj!" or "Uwaga!"

    u - oo in noon
    w - v in very
    a - a in dark
    ż - s in measure
    j - y in yellow
    g - g in girl

    Hope this helps. If you have any problem, don't hesitate to ask. :)

    I wasn't precise:

    uważaj - when speaking to one person
    uważajcie - when speaking to more than one person
    uważajmy - when speaking to one or more than one person but including yourself (let's be careful)
    uwaga - neutral and gender-free version

    Hope this doesn't lead you to a confusion. :D

    I guess uwaga (look/watch out) is what one sees most often.
    You can also use: ostrożnie for be careful.

    g pronounced as in genre.
