    My grandmother from Slovakia used to warn me about stepping in my dog’s droppings…called them “gunzik”??? I have no idea how to spell it and wondering what it actually means. Anybody help? I apologize for lack of details.

    Hi. I’m Slovak but I have no idea. There are infinite ways to call dog’s droppings.

    Hi, I’m not Slovak but perhaps its suppose to be guznik, because the way you spelled it has to do something with gunz n’ shiet :# :#

    In Belarusian shit is ‘hovno’. But ‘pod-h(g)uznik is a kind of diaper placed under baby’s bottom. Pod -h(g)uznik.

    In Slovakia to children they would say Kaka usually. Hovno is also a word for shit in Slovak but never heard it said to children. I was 5 years old when I lived in Slovakia so I still remeber being told not to step in dog crap or touch stuff that was dirty. Usually old babkas just told me “fujjjj Kaka” and I knew not to step or touch dirty things  :D

    Maybe his grandmother was from Eastern Slovakia and/or Rusyn? Maybe guznik means poo-poo in Rusyn?  My Ukrainian grandfather used to say to me in the morning something that sounded like “Ubirausa!” (spelling?). What the heck is that word?

    @Karpivna Well I don’t know for sure but I bet it’s the same as Slovak “preberaj sa”, which means “wake up”.
    We also use “uberaj sa” but it means something like “go”.

    no idea, although what Shaokang said came to my mind too.
    I googled it a bit and apparently there is Gundzík surname, of course in the East.
