Learning Slovene brings for me, a native speaker of Slovak language, a lot of funny situations. As both languages belong to the same group, they share quite many similarities which make my learning easier. BUT… not everytime. There si number of words which are present both in Slovak and Slovene language and although they are the same or almost the same in form, their meaning is often miles away from what you would guess… This naturally leads to a lot of amusing conversations – just have a look at the short list below and imagine the fun I have here 🙂
|Word in Slovene/Slovak||Meaning in Slovene||Meaning in Slovak|
|Les||Wood (material)||Woods, forest|
|Gate||Male underwear||Trousers (slang)|
|Slovenka||Slovene female||Slovak female|
I am pretty sure that there such similarities of Slovene also to other languages? What about yours?
I will be happy if we are friends on social media:
