The double negation in Czech seems to work differently, compared with most other European languages.

Nikdo mě nemá rád -> nobody likes me

Would "nikdo mě má rád" be completely incorrect? Is the redundant negation compulsory?

Yes, it is compulsory. Slavic languages work that way, as far as I know. Often even vernacular English ("I ain't no...", "We don't need no...").

VladaFu, я восхищён! И немецкий и русский, но что меня потрясло, это что у вас всегда есть ответ, который помогает! Und wie ich sehe, beherrschen sie auch die deutsche Sprache ... wirklich nicht schlecht
