Could someone clarify what exactly is the logic behind this construction? No matter how many times I encounter this sentence, I’m always confused by it and I still haven’t figured out how exactly does this work.
Is this something along the lines of “there are six of them”? Although that would be “jest ich sześć” only… I just don’t understand the the exact role that “osób” is playing here. I’d be so grateful for any help!
Thank you for the clarification! It relieves me a lot that this is indeed colloquial. Btw, regarding the mixed-gender collective nouns, are they really used that often? I hardly encounter them to be honest, and to be frank I haven’t really focused on studying them because of it, but maybe I’m actually misjudging how often they are used.
