  • prát = to do laundry, to wash clothes
  • prát se (reflexive) = to fight

Examples:

  • Kluci často perou = Boys often do laundry
  • Kluci se často perou = Boys often fight

Fun fact: it's the same in Polish: prać = to do laundry; prać się = to fight, although the second one is very colloquial.

    I'm guessing that this dates back to the time when one beat laundry to wash it.
