What is your favorite word in Czech?
What is your favorite word in Czech? Please answer what your favorite word is, what it translates to in English, and why it is your favorite. Děkuji!
Can I say more than one? It's really hard to answer just one. x)
Some of my favorite Czech words are: "Zmrzlina" = "Ice cream", "Moře" = "Sea", "Král" = "King" and "Zrcadlo" = "Mirror". "Láska" is also very pretty as mentioned by DragonPolyglot. I might remember more in the future but for now these will do.
I love it! There are definitely weirder consonant clusters out there. Zmrzlina is the cuttest! And yes...I typed it wrong. It's now correct.
Nesnáším. The coolest word so far. I also like zvláštní, děvče, and anything that ends in ček or šek. I am still learning Czech, but I know enough to know that it is the coolest language on earth. Not the most beautiful, but the coolest by far. Excluding Slovak, because Slovak is 3 times more similar to Czech than Old English is to english. I know Czech is confusing, but it's awesome nonetheless. :)
I like škraloup (the skin of boiled milk), because it just so specific _panelak (the modular concrete panel tower housing) because its simple and descriptive __..tož (..well) because it's used in everyday speech, though more so in Moravia, _šalina (a tram in Brno) because its deliciously different _škoda (a pity) because it is unfortunately spelt the same as the car maker _mzda (wages or earnings) because it rolls off the tongue
"Ahoj" ... This one took me by surprise. I love the sea, so it seemed like a little hint that I should give this Slavic lang a try. Also, for some reason the whole language just clicks, doesn't it? I know all the Slavic langs have the same basic grammar, but Czech really speaks to me for some reason.
Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with Czech cuisine. :(
So as a suggestion for your next visit to Czechia, go and visit some cozy little cukrárna and have a more traditional Czech zákusek (dessert) like laskonka, indiánek, žloutkový věneček, punčový řez, kremrole or rakvička. They are all utterly delicious and the words themselves are just as sweet. :)
