Another friend at work speaks Italian, but an old Northern dialect.
Suka means the same thing thats the words I offended the lady at the football game with calling my dog a Stinky Suka that does not listen ha ha.
You can get in a lot of trouble mispronouncing a word.
Suka… we covered that…
Shuka… A pike ( fish )
Pika… Also a pike but not the same, its a pointy stick or spear.
He notices people hear the accent and odd used of words and remark they they know he is not from Italy but his parents were.
My boss Kornel and this other fellow Tibor must have the highest blood pressure in the world.
I never seen guys ears turn red, then faces, and conversation descend into muttering and swears as fast as an angry Hungarians HA HA…
Tibor was an interesting fellow, he used to do a lot of cross words as a vocabulary builder…
Also he was a fantastic industrial black smith.
He could make tools, forge and machine parts ect.
The kind of mend and make do skill you do not see much anymore.
Also initiative ideas like self sharpen plow blades he made by forging, tempering different hardness of steel.
Kurwa and Kurba
B and W switching
Vasil (василь) in Ukrainian starts with a character in that looks like B but makes a V sound.
I watch your typing and see you sometimes use the W and V but mean to use the letter V in English for the V sound.
I picked up a Slovene word several years back Srne for deer ( from a song )
Is that deer or doe or buck ?
In polish or Ukrainian word for deer is Olen or Jelen.
Time to head out now.
I need to go shopping and need some stuff for supper.
Son wants me to make krumplileves for supper or broccoli and cheese soup.
Off to the part of town where you have to sound out the contents on the jar to be sure of what you are buying HA HA.
Your right now that I think about it Kozel is a Czech.
I drink Tatra… its the cheapest beer you can buy up here, oddly it come half way around the world figure that out?
