It is used in English English, but out of fashion.

What about the kind of English which you give as your native language?

I suppose I distinguish between British English and American English. Both of which are English English............

I don't think there is anything like British English, to be honest. Only the English speak English English; the Welsh speak Welsh and their own dialects of English; the Scots speak Scottish English and Scottish Gaelic; the Irish speak - er - something a bit different, and they are not part of Britain anyway.

Time before I gave a beat a guy that don't like me.

Therefore I beat him up before.

Wow my ears are hurting from all this out of tune whistling..

So how would you call what a Polak speaks talking fluent Scottish?

So I guess 'paliza' is only used in terms of 'beating up', not for instance beating an egg, or the beating of drums /housemusic or something to this effect?

Well, it depends where he learned it. By the way - that is not a very nice name for somebody Polish.
