I always like the name of Novi Sad but rarely anyone today knows what it means which is quite shameful.
One TV host ,while talking about the city, translated the name as "New Now" because she didn't know that sad (with a long a) is an archaic word for a garden. It would be nice to reintroduce that word in our language and slowly dismiss the Turkish bašča and bašta.

Yes, the turkish influence really disfigured a part of south slavic words. If only someone would collect a number of arhaic words and bring them to present language.
