As you already know "bre" is untranslatable. It's a very popular and typical particle for Serbian. It's a whole philosophy:)))

What bre?

here we come to the best-loved Serbian word, though it means absolutely nothing! You can freely attach it to ALMOST ANY sentence you utter or write in Serbian and not make a mistake:):)
"bre" by itself means nothing, so that the translation of you question may also be just "what?"
