@nikebg Oh, I forgot. We also have dielo. It means “work” (noun; work of an artist or a writer f.e.).August 5, 2018 at 6:28 pm #461019
Оттам и поговорката:

Speaking of a word for bicycle, in CBMS language(s), all three genders are grammatically correct: masculine: bicikl (ovaj bicikl – this bicycle)
feminine: bicikla (ova bicikla – this bicycle)
neutral: biciklo (ovo biciklo – this bicycle)
I can’t think of any other word like that.August 6, 2018 at 9:56 am #461032
Let me help you up a bit there: “Serbian language” 👺August 6, 2018 at 7:29 pm #461051
Well, I’m just trying to be inclusive. Don’t forget, it’s Montenegrins who preserved the culture (and language) through the dark times.August 6, 2018 at 11:03 pm #461057
Kapusta.August 7, 2018 at 12:06 am #461059August 7, 2018 at 1:39 am #461061
@mikiveliki yet I use bicikli (pl. biciklovi), cause fu, we’re Syrmians. Why are you talking about this foreign word here?
also bicigľaAugust 7, 2018 at 1:44 am #461062
@mikiveliki I’ve never eaten Serbian food, sadly. 🙁 I googled Podvarak and it looks delicious! Do Serbians eat Podvarak in the summer? Or just cold weather?
“Kapusta” means cabbage in Ukrainian. Often, Kapusta means the dish in the video below. Kapusta can be eaten anytime a person is hungry for it! 😀 There are many different “Kapusta” dishes Ukrainians enjoy.August 7, 2018 at 7:10 am #461066
This looks exactly like podvarak I know!
It sounds like podvarak is the subset of kapusta.
Oh don’t get me wrong, I’d definitely go for it ANY time. But sauerkraut/bacon/kielbasa are usually prepared for the winter so…August 7, 2018 at 1:07 pm #461072
Don’t forget, it’s Montenegrins who preserved the culture (and language) through the dark times.
How do you call presence?August 7, 2018 at 7:57 pm #461075
Yugoslavs. Here we go again. 😀August 8, 2018 at 1:19 am #461081
Thought you knew better. Its just me trolling on the new membersAugust 8, 2018 at 9:06 am #461084
I thought you were talking about the Ottomans. Like the occasionally recurring rumour here that someone supposedly wants to replace the “Turkish slavery/yoke” with “Ottoman presence” in our schoolbooks…August 8, 2018 at 10:24 am #461086
I would say on a national levels in the Balkans was forged opinion of Ottomans based on the waves of secular revolutions of 1848, because our most educated people of that time were schooled in the West where those revolutions occurred, and they wrote our history, so we often forget that Ottoman empire was one of the more liberal empires (speaking from the perspective of that period) in this part of Europe until mid 17th century when they reached zenith.
