Things you didn’t know about the Czech language
Share your thoughts!

Czech is my native/mother/first language. I don´t live in my fatherland for many years lately,

I am especially glad for the point no. 5 in this article. ..... My viewpoint was always that English, and other languages, are terrible communication tool with their spelling rules. [[That´s why I will probably never reach native speaker level in English, despite using it since primary school, and living in England for so many years.]] In Czech language perhaps 95%+ of words are written the same way as we are pronouncing it.

Which of those 12 points interest you?

Do you consider anything else to be special in Czech?

I would love to hear about specifics of OTHER LANGUAGES TOO.

That words can be ordered in different ways depending on what the speaker wishes to emphasize was interesting Marvin.

I found the whole article interesting. Plus the website itself.

My Great Grand Parents emigrated from what is now the Czech Republic in the late 1800s.

So I am interested in learning about my heritage.

Hopefully I can travel there someday.

That´s amazing, Leo Moon! Now Nutelina, GoldenLion5 and others with some sort of Czech heritage or descent.

It was the "Day of European Languages" day before yesterday, so we honour all languages! I wanna learn about theirs too.

Amazing, I didn’t know Ř was unique. I’d love to know about it’s origins hehe. Maybe a wood chopper angrily said: A já dnes budu řezat!

"That words can be ordered in different ways depending on what the speaker wishes to emphasize was interesting Marvin."

So "wild and crazy guys" can be reordered to "crazy and wild guys" and still mean the same thing?

Interesting...

Good thing kids learn how to write about meat first thing too.

If you can´t write about meat, you can´t write about pudding. How can you write about pudding if you can´t write about meat? :40:

I mean I can get great beer at a local pub in Letna for 16! It´s no so much alcohol but still darn good beer! :36:

They have Chotěboř and Kaisern?

I see. International beer selection is pretty poor where I live in the US.

I´ll keep an eye out for those next time I´m in the "city." Always looking to try new stuff.

Oh it´s awesome... Hands down.. Maybe in southern Europe you´d get all kinds of wine and fresh fish.. I love tapas but Czech republic is amazing with regards to food, drings and going out... You can even smoke spliffs in some bars and clubs, I kid you not. It´s so free that I worry when and how it will end... That ugly EU wanting to push foreign people in from countries which were attacked by US. It´s all coordinated I tell you. Soros and what not, Epstein... OK going on a rant here. Time to go to bed.

I can´t believe that in 2019 you can get a beer for 16; Kč (CZK). If yes, I will be in a pub daily. I paid 27 koruns in HK (large Czech city, not Hong Kong) about two years ago. Prague is around 35 today, and most smaller cities few koruns less maybe. Tell me your secrets. Here is £5 !! for a decent beer. £3 most most brands. £1.50 Tesco beer alternative. It tastes poorly.

It seems that Czechs don´t speak dirty or too vulgar, because I didn´t find something similar like Urban dictionary for Czech language. I found dirty Germans, Spanish or French. Maybe you will find something for Czech. And I know Czechs ARE using colloquial language, street language, argot, and other dirty stuff too.

Dirty word dictionary? Seems you live in the dirtiest country, at least according to the Czech search engine.

Do you know Gene Deitch? I´ll post about him later on my thread about Czech Rep. because it is intimately related...

Oh this is so funny and you can listen do Czech language with subtitles. I loved his book :79:

Well, unfortunately there isn´t enough people interested in the topic.

But Leo Moon, leorising, MarvinReal, Nutelina, fishscales, So far wrote here, .... and because your theory is that Nutelina and Marvin are the same person, :3: it´s even less contributors.

.... and why did you rejected such honour?? I never offered you friendship before!!!

And Nutelina is blocked for what reason? Because you think he is me?! :4:

Ridiculous, you try to let people feel better, feel them welcome, joke around but some just don’t get it. Well I’m not feeling sorry for them anymore, might as well live my own life and be with real people.
