    This is not about understanding the language, but rather a test about how much of spoken Slovene can be "decoded" by those of you who never learned this language. Let me explain what I mean by that.

    Spoken language sometimes sounds like a continuous stream rather than seperate words to a non-speaker. To "decode" it, the listener tries to segment this stream of gibberish into a sequence of individual words according to own perception. What you write doesn't have to make sense, words can be imaginary, so don't worry if it sounds funny. That's the point of the thread. ;D the Slovenians of this forum deserve a bit of fun, isn't that right?  :P

    I have made a few snippets of speech and songs. Listen to it and write down the speech/lyrics as you hear it.
    You don't have to do all of them, you could pick just one.

    – Speech:

    – Song 1:

    – Song 2:

    – Rap:

    I have only a very limited understanding. I understand Croatian Kajkavian far better as it can be considered a transitional dialect between Croatian and Slovene.

    ^ How much of this can a Slovene understand? I assume nearly all of it as can I.

    No worries, in this thread understanding it doesn't matter. It's all about trying to type it for the lulz :D

    I can understand almost all of it, though the fact that I learned Štokavian (standard Croatian and Serbian) helps me somewhat in understanding it. Slovene speakers who never learned Štokavian will understand Kajkavian better than they will understand Štokavian though, but knowing Štokavian adds the "missing piece" in understanding Kajkavian. As you said, it could be considered as a transitional dialect.

    It's New Year time, so make a "zaobljuba" but stick to it for a difference, as people often forget what they have promissed themselves on New Years eave. :) Good luck with it.
