Usage notes[edit]

There are two words that overlap semantically with English dust. The first one is kurz, which refers to airborne dust that settles on things as a form of pollution. The second is pył, which is neutral and refers to any very finely divided solid substance. For instance, the phrase I swiped the dust from the shelves would be equivalent to Starłem kurz z półek, but the compound coal dust would be translated as pył węglowy.
