I'm not a linguist, but I can bet you any money that standard Slovenian is influenced by all neighboring languages (which is understandable).

Yes, except for monolingual cities such as Ljubljana (so no signs with 'Lubiana').

Where did you see a sign for Umag? I only know about a sign for Poreč (but without 'Parenzo').

On the way to the airport

Ljubljana Brnik airport has free wifi, so I can upload photos while waiting for my flight to Paris.

Thanks hofburg. I hope your flight will be ok not like the last time (I am going back on Sunday). I am just wondering what does "dol" mean? Is it the same as in Slovak - mine? So, Mine near Ljubjana?

Btw, Vodice should be on a coast.

Where did you see "dol" written?

Yes, although it's an archaic expression. We call a valley "dolina" nowadays.

Ah, Dol pri Ljubljani. Yes, that's Valley by Ljubljana. "Dol" can also mean "down(wards)" otherwise.

We say "dolina" as well. Btw. It's quite confusing to see you, Seem, in the thread including word Slovenske which is not Slovakian.

This is the only pic I've found:


http://www.panoramio.com/photo/1332927 by dussan

This one is in Ljubljana (there're more, but not so many). I can't remember for other cities/towns, but probably they exist elsewhere too. I think they're at least 20 years old, so it's quite likely that we had them before 1990.



And a pic of some old internally-lit signs in Ljubljana:

about lit signs - these look quite new, but the blu colour tells me they are probably at least 15 years old, right?
i'm not sure if some internally lit direction signs aer left in HR from yugoslav times.

The signs on the pic are from times of Yugoslavia, because there's no HR oval by Zagreb, I remember them since always and we haven't put new internally-lit signs for a long time. They remind me of Belgium, btw.
