Yes. In fast speech (and sometimes in Internet writing) you can meet simplifications like psze’aszam (where ’ stands for a glottal stop), pszaszam, and similar with elision of the middle consonant cluster/syllable (and explicitly marked devoicing of rz), but I’ve never met elision of the initial p.

When the verb is negated the direct object takes the genitive.
1. Nic nie robi? [Would it be possible to use pan in this question?]

Saim wrote:That sentence is perfectly grammatical. I wouldn't say it's "the" word order, though, because nic could be in a couple of other places in the sentence: I'm not 100% sure what the default/most neutral order would be, but I have a feeling it's actually pan nic nie robi.
