Der kleine Stowasser? I only know that Hundertwasser, the architect, was born Stowasser and changed his name upon learning that “Sto” means “a hundred” in a few Slavic languages, including Slovenian. :)
It`s a Latin-German dictionary. According to Wikipedia, its editor and Hundertwasser were relatives, almost 100 year apart :o) I can count in Russian up to ten, that were my only knowledge of Slavic numbers (until now :DDD)
Okay, just for you, Slovenian until ten: 1. ena, 2. dva, 3. tri, 4. štiri, 5. pet, 6. šest, 7. sedem, 8. osem, 9. devet, 10. deset. :) And thanks for the info!
It`s almost the same as in Russian!
Slavic languages are so similar that I was able to communicate in my language in Prague and in Bratislava. It’s only our southern ‘brothers’ who used to find it hard to understand us. :D (ie. Serbians, Croates, Macedonians). But truth be told – Slovenian might be more similar to Slovak and Czech, and even Russian, than these three.
One of my very best friend is Slowenian and she could actually understand our Bulgarian friend, even if not completely :o) It should be nice to have language relatives. Hungarian is like a lonesome island.
:) True! How about Finnish? Not really, hm? That’s nice, to have Slovenian best friend. If you ever visit her there, tell me. I’m going in a few days.
Well, we parted ways with the Finnish 2000 years ago. They say the grammar and the pronunciation are similar (we both have accents only on the first syllable of a word) but we actually aren’t even close to understanding each other. It’s a pity. My friend lives in Germany now, she is an opera singer, but before she moved away, she sung in the Maribor opera and lived in Celje.
