    It’s a good thing Slovak was based on Central Slovak as some Western and eastern dialects are ridiculous.

    Why ridiculous?

    Can you imagine standard Slovak being based on Záhorie dialect or any eastern Slovak dialect .That would be absurd. They are amusing and fun to learn but standard Slovak sounds much better by far imo.

    @srdceleva I’d say standard Slovak sounds more intellectual, if that’s the right word. And Czech sounds more intellectual than Moravian. Nevertheless I love all those dialects. You would have a different opinion if std Slovak was already based on some of those dialects.

    I wish I had some audio of my grandfather speaking Czech. I wonder what dialect/regional variation he used.

    Štúr  specifically based Slovak on Central slovak dialects because it was softer and more pleasant to all Slovak speakers, everyone basically agreed. Trnava dialect is too harsh ,and nobody from Western Slovakia could even understand eastern dialects. Also I think Moravian sounds better and more pleasent than Czech from prauge which sounds strange to my American ears. How do you go from pronouncing byt like bet. Moravian sounds like a Slovak speaking Czech, pleasent and nice.

    Btw I just went to Košice for the first time this past weekend, really nice city I was thoroughly impressed.

    A polka band is LOUDLY playing “Polish Music,” to use the term loosely, in the park nearby. It’s a holiday weekend in America, Memorial Day, so lots of outdoor parties and picnics going on.

    I heard this song a bit ago, so I decided to research it.  Lots of so-called “Polish Polka Music” known in America is actually of Czech, German and Slovenian origin.

    <b>Beer Barrel Polka,</b>” also known as “<b>The Barrel Polka</b>” and “<b>Roll Out the Barrel,</b>” is a song which became popular worldwide during World War II. The music was composed by the Czech musician Jaromír Vejvoda in 1927.<sup id=”cite_ref-1″ class=”reference”></sup> Eduard Ingriš wrote the first arrangement of the piece, after Vejvoda came upon the melody and sought Ingriš’s help in refining it. At that time, it was played without lyrics as “Modřanská polka” (“Polka of Modřany”). Its first text was written later (in 1934) by Václav Zeman – with the title “Škoda lásky”<sup id=”cite_ref-2″ class=”reference”></sup> (“Wasted Love”).

    Here, some Chinese kids play the song on their accordions. Very peppy! 😀

    “Beer Barrel Polka” absolutely rules, and even though polka is a popular style of music in Germany, Slovenia, Mexico, Finland, Austria, Switzerland, and to a lesser extent Russia, Ukraine, the Netherlands, and Romania, it It’s absolutely Czech. It caught fire and spread from there.
