or slovakian word for "drink" is "nápoj", and in croatian "napoj" is slops (food for pigs, usually rests from restaurants)

Interesting, 'napoj' means potion in Slovenian.

Wow, our long-lost brothers. I know that in the Old Church Slavonic Slovaks are called 'Carpathian Slavs', while Slovenians are called 'Illyrian Slavs', and Slovenia is called 'Illyrian Slovenia/Slavia'. I know a guy who actually speaks this extinct language.

Tell me about it. Once I was in a restaurant with an Estonian MP (Rainis). He didn't have matches or a lighter, and as he was totally drunk, he thought it would be a good idea to communicate in Russian, so he yelled all over the restaurant 'spički' (matches), which in Slovenian means '**** off'. I was totally embarrassed.

Nice banner, btw.

Well, Slavic languages differ more than I thought. Even Slovene and Croatian have some big differences. Zahod

Slovenian is closer to Sanskrit than to German or Italian.

This is a good one! I never would imagine, that in Slovenian "spički" meant that.

I see Slavic languages had very good influence on Hungarian language. Without them you even wouldn't be able to swear.

Old Church Slavonic is still in use by Orthodox and Greek-Catholic church, but I don't know anybody who can speak it.

Well, at least I hope the waitress heard it like that; if she heard 'pička', that means the same as 'piča' in Slovak.

That must feel so good, x-type! For Dutchies it's not a well-known destination, so I guess that you won't see many. Have fun on Sardinia!

I think you'll see more Dutch plates on Corsica. Sardinia is too far even for Dutch I guess.
