what does "hč" mean?
What does "hč" mean in Dutch and where does it come from (since it looks like letter from czech alphabet)? I first met with it when watching tv series with dutch subtitles, google translates it as 'huh?'. example sentence: 00:06:52 Dat is niet echt een grap, hč?
I think it is just a mistake. It should have been : Dat is niet echt een grap, hè?
Copied from wiktionary:
huh; said when surprised or puzzled. Hè? Wat gebeurde er nou? Huh? What just happened? ugh, aww; said when disappointed or annoyed. Hè, doe niet zo kinderachtig! Ugh, don't be such a baby! (as a question at the end of a statement) does it?, is it?, right?, eh?; creates a tag question. Dat was niet zo slim van je, hè? That was not so clever of you, was it?</pre>
hč is not a letter combination used in Dutch, nor is the letter č
If I had to guess it should say he.
FYI: The letter 'č' is used in Czech and Slovak, as well as some other Slavic languages and is an equivalent of the Polish 'cz'. Therefore, the reason why the country name is "Czech Republic" is unknown to me. Especially that the legendary goalkeeper is called Petr Čech.
Sorry for wandering off topic but the whole thread was a result of a mistake =P.
Official Czech name is Česko, Česká republika, Czech Republic is just an English transcription.
