A Czech Loan-Word in Merriam-Webster's "Word of the Day"
Dobré ráno přátelé!
Probably a coincidence, but Merriam-Webster's "Word of the Day" today (September 6 - the day after Duo's Czech course goes into Beta) happens to be an English loan-word from Czech with a particularly interesting history. More info here:

Is this a sign!? I think I should take a look at Czech. I loved reading about 'robot' and it's history. I knew a bit before, I'm a huge sci-fi fan - who is bad at remembering facts :-)
Or is it an AI that controls the interwebs - telling us it's all connected?
If this is about the word robot, it comes from the word for labour (robota) and Capek came up with the word.
