Anonymous30 Things That Mean You Are Slavic
Do you even wonder what makes people Slavic? or what is that trait that will defiantly make you fami…May 24, 2015 at 2:34 pm #427891
”Which language is the word ”propuh” taken from?
In slovene we use the word ”suša” for it, coming from suh (dry) -> suša (the process of palatalization where ‘h’ turns into ‘š’).
Ok, this was a huge fail, a thought you wrote ‘drought’ when you actually wrote ‘draught’ … my bad. So to clear this up – we the Slovenes say ‘prepih’, so the nouns are practically the same.
Cheers to you all!May 24, 2015 at 3:31 pm #427892
I’m never late to the parties. Although I am already drunk before it starts anyway.
In general, however, many of them are correct (and funny at the same time)May 24, 2015 at 4:51 pm #427894
I certainly did not have 600 people at my wedding, and cars are not a status symbol for me.May 24, 2015 at 6:26 pm #427896May 24, 2015 at 6:43 pm #427897

Maybe I am not my mother was born in the non Slawic USSR and my father in Lodz Polen so I guess I am not.May 27, 2015 at 2:49 pm #427904
“30 things that mean you are South Slavic in USA”* or somewhere similar.May 27, 2015 at 5:54 pm #427909
@Dušan why South Slav only? (okey except the cult of the lamb part )May 28, 2015 at 2:09 pm #427927

@Dušan 25 south Slavic? My grandmother who was from eastern Ukraine could hardly speak English, and she made her own home made version of Pizza. The artical has a lot of stereo types where some fit and some don´t. The bit about garlic and onions fits, same with 14, no one in my family uses them, they just go by feel. Then the bit about the parents not traveling does not fit at all where my parents love to travel, they alone moved five times to a differant continent, and are constanly going some where!
Maybe it is the Polish-Ukrainian mixture, with many years in Germany and Canada? 27 is a habbit of my father, but not in Sprite bottles.May 28, 2015 at 3:30 pm #427929
@Schmierfink Non-English speaking grandmother is shocked because pica(pizza) is slang for pussy in some South Slavic languages. That’s what I’m talking about
I should’ve guessed that 27 is in common for most Slavs.May 28, 2015 at 3:54 pm #427930
Ah ha ok learned something new! Living in Germany I am just not familiar with
those kind of sayings as the older people, well grandparents, parents aunts and uncles never really use stuff like thatMay 28, 2015 at 5:05 pm #427931
@Schmierfink it’s an older expression, today it’s rarely in use.May 28, 2015 at 10:22 pm #427933
Blyaaadd, it’s all true
