    I assume you wrote a Polish word as in "On by tam poszedł." This, as in several other slavic languages, is a conditional particle. "He would go there" - assuming some reasoning, thus would, not will. It is the same in Russian and Czech. Goggle translator confirms Polish version too :)


    Probably you need the meaning of 'by' for example in a phrase like "written by Shakespeare". It's: "napisane PRZEZ Shakespeare'a"
    I hope that's it. If not, please give some examples :)
