This is exactly the sort of thing I had in mind for submitting to a group. I
hope someone can help.

Is this meant to be Polish spelling? What are the Hebrew letters used for
the word?
Could you give us the context?

Is the "git" a hard "g" or a soft "g" as in giovanni? "rzucic," pronounced
"zhuchich," means to throw. Perhaps the "i" in git should be a "u." The word
"smieci," pronounced shmiechi," because it has a slash over the "s," means
garbage. I don't understand the "lu" however.
