Can we use other wordorders here in Czech, for instance "Asi mě nezná" or "On mě nezná asi" ? Thx!!

I'll offer a GUESS... "Asi mě nezná" sounds like it might work, but "On mě nezná asi" sounds weird to me. Which is scary, since I'm not exactly a Czech expert... :-) But hopefully someone who IS will give you a better answer!

Very good instinct, if that's what it is. Sentence-initial "asi" is fine. Sentence-final "asi" sounds like an afterthought, much like HE DOES NOT KNOW ME PROBABLY.

BTW, you can respond to my "warning" question right here.

Why 'He perhaps doesn't know me' not accepted?

"Perhaps" was just missing from one of the word order groups, and I have added it; thanks.
