This page is an (incomplete) list of the vocabulary and terminology of the Polandball universe and comics, and their origin.

ReichTime.pngAnschluss 🔊

Main article: Anschluss

The Anschluss has been halted...For now...

Originally a Nazi propaganda term used to refer to the annexation of Austria-icon.png Austriaball into Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball, it is used by Germany-icon.png Germanyball and ReichTime.png Reichtangle when taking clay of other countries. This is displayed when the former features characteristics of the latter. It has been temporarily banned from the Polandball Reddit ('Joke Life Preserve' process), though it still makes regular appearances on Facebook-icon.png Faceblock from time to time. 

The phrase is infrequently followed by zeit.

There are anschluss forms for other countries. For example, Braziltangle-icon.png Brazilian Empireball and Portuguese Empire-icon (tangle).pngPortuguese Empireball use "ãoxluss".

DickRhino-icon.png Börk 🔊

Börk is a meaningless word that originated from the Muppets Show Swedish Chef1. It has no actual meaning, as it was just supposed to sound Swedish-like and nothing else.

But in dictionary meaning. Bork means to obstruct someone (as to obstruct a candidate of a politician)

Almost all countries greet each other in their own language but there are some exceptions like Brazil-icon.png Brazilball (and some Lusosphere in some occasions) who say "Huello" or "Hue-llo" instead of "Bom dia" due to their overwhelming Hue, or use "Helloing" by the Broken English speakers.

Clay

It means land. For example, Polandball often complains to Russiaball for stealing his clay and horses.

This term originated in a YouTube video (broken) posted ranting against Kebab from Serbiaball's point of view. It is from the 'Remove Kebab' copypasta. The video gave Bosniaball one chance to give back Serbia's righteous clay.

stupid baby form the eggn give bak our clay we will crush u lik a skull of pig. serbia greattst countrey
 
— Remove kebab copypasta, origin of 'clay'

"Clay" is probably the result of a literal bad (machine) translation of the word "land" (as in piece of land) from Serbian to English.

Gib

Germanyball Euro.gif

German imperative for give. Very common phrases are gib clay or gib sea or gib money. Gib sea is frequently used by landlockeds (Austriaball, Boliviaball, Hungaryball, Paraguayball, San Marinoball, Switzerlandball, Serbiaball, Uzbekistanball, Boliviaball...) Gib money Often used by Gypsyball and Greeceball(due to debt).

Hue

The typical laugh of Brazilball (despite repeating k inumerous times is way more popular) and also of the Lusosphere. [2][3]

Remove HUE is equivalent to the more correct form Remove Feijoada.

Of

It's the symbol of broken English. It's often put in random places or, more frequently, after the verb to be. Op is also used as an alternative.

Plox

It means please.

Pay de(n)bts

Often satirized in Polandball is the fact that many countries owe many other countries money via the International Monetary Fund. Contrary to the popular stereotype of the USAball owing many countries money; due to Polandball's natural eurocentrism, it often involves other countries of Europe owing money to one another. A more popular example is Greeceball owing Germanyball money, and constantly (and successfully) begging for more.

Make

Sometimes, the word make is put in front of verbs often like making or makes. Also this word is Makemakeball's Börk.

Stronk

Stronk is an eastern European/Russian pronunciation of the word strong. Most commonly used in the context of mocking or showing reverence towards something brutish or powerful that is of eastern European/Russian origin. Meaning of Stronk and Definition of Stronk, it is also the broken pronunciation of "stronk".

Yuo

Broken English spelling of you. Everybody cannot say you, except countries that has no accent or England-icon.png the inventor of the English language

Homosex/Homogay/Gender

Usually, it could mean countries that like homosexuals or transgender people, or countries that recognize them and don't discriminate against them, with a well-known example being Swedenball and if a country cannot into gender or does not want into gender, they don't recognize homosexuals or transgenders as good, and often discriminates them by using religion, and popular examples of anti-homosex/homogay/gender countries would be Russiaball, Polandball, Ugandaball or Vaticanball. Overall, it just means LGBT people or countries that like the LGBT community. In Polandball, homosex, homogay, and gender basically mean the same thing.

Hab

Broken English spelling of have. Used only occasionally.

Pigdog

A termed used by to refer to America,same meaning like 'Pindos' or 'Yankee'. Commonly used by China

Rage text

Macedonias Bickering.png

Rage text is a minor feature of the meme where a country, usually floating, insults with text on its behind. The text is always uppercase and usually red, mixed with "Remove" and various swear words. Sometimes used for Talking crap but without letters uppercase and red. It can be seen in the 2010 cultural heritage cook off when Turkey was showing kebab to the UN and Serbia came out of nowhere removing the kebab Turkey was holding.

Strikethrough text

This type of text represent jokes and common misconceptions, or sometimes to improve racism.

An example of a Strikethrough text:

Blanda upp/Polandball Fusions

8rPuX1D.png

"Blanda upp" means "Blend up" in Swedish. This feature is VERY RECENT. Basically, it is two or more countries uniting or fusioning to make a new country. Here are the current ones:

Poland is not yet lost

Polen is not yet lost.png

Poland is not yet lost is a term used by Poland when he is lost or some countries talking about someone missing in Polandball. It became a meme because Poland is not yet lost is also the 1st verse of Poland's anthem.
