Please could someone let me know what the following means. I think it might be Slovakian:
"Das Postanes"

Many thanks

I love you Grandma in Slovak » answer
by Picnuts, 2013-11-08, 07:11  Spam?  70.73.172....
Hello, My Grandma recently passed away and my cousin and I would like to get tattoos to honour her. We would like the phrases "I love you Grandma" and "I love you more Grandma". I would like some confirmation on what we have translated so far.

Milujem ťa babka

Milujem ťa viac babka

Also the word babka, should it be a capital b or lower case? Also, because these are sentences, should we use the word "ja" in front? Ja milujem t'a babka and Ja milujem t'a viac babka?

If it helps, we were very close to our Grandma.

Thank you so much!

I hope it´s not too late. I´m a Slovak native speaker and I would like to make some slight corrections to your proposal.
First, "milujem ťa" in Slovak refers more to the relation of lovers. It´s better to say "ľúbim ťa" or "mám ťa rád" (if I´m a boy) / "mám ťa rada" (if I´m a girl).
Then forget any other amendments you mention below:
within the phrase - no capital letters;
"ja" at the beginning - should be omitted in the first sentence, on contrary in the second one it is required:
this is what is in Slovak grammar known as "hidden subject" and is common unless you want to put an emphasis on the clause subject which would cause the following meaning: Ja ťa ľúbim - I love you (not him / her) or Ľúbim ťa" - "Ja ťa ľúbim viac" (meaning viac ako on/ ona)
So, my proposals are as follows:

1/ Ľúbim ťa, babka.    
  Ja ťa ľúbim viac, babka.  
2/ Mám ťa rád, babka. (if I´m a boy)   Mám ťa rada, babka. (if I´m a girl)
  Ja ťa mám radšej, babka.

And don´t forget the commas, they are used when addressing somebody.

I hope I have been a little bit helpful.

I´m putting down the copy of my mail to Paul here in order to give the space for an open discussion. Any new idea is very welcome!

Dear Paul!
Thank you for a new tag in the Slovak part of the dictionary:
[dok./nedok.], this is what´s expressing the point exactly!

However I would appreciate very much some more amendments in the Slovak
tag frame:
- in the styles and hue tags group (starting with [ľud.] ) - adding
[kniž.], meaning "knižný výraz" and corresponding to the German
"gehoben" or English "formal" (Slovak linguistic terminology operates with
the term "knižný")žný&c=6b26
lingv. k-é slovo typické pre pís. jazykové prejavy náročnejšieho
- in the same tags group - changing  [fig.] (meaning "figuratívny") to
[obr.] meaning "obrazný": again, this...

I already changed all the [dok.]+ [niedok.] to [dok./niedok.] and made a comment on all those that are still pending (mostly your entries). Please have a look at my comments (Heflamoke -> listings -> comments) and change the entries accordingly.

Can't comment on the other changes, since you are the expert.
by admin (AT), 2013-08-22, 13:23  Spam?  
Hi Renata,

thanks for the proposals. Personally I'm fine with all of the proposals and think we should accept them all; especially since the distinction between [hist.] and [zast.] is very blurred and niekt. was supposed to be a generic tag (e.g. it is used for all genders in the printed SAV dictionaries), but which we clearly managed to avoid by using the specific case tags we have.
by renbyska (SK), 2013-08-23, 10:24  Spam?  
I´m bringing in my consideration which I sent in a hurry to admin. directly. We are looking for any new idea and/or comment especially on the "historism" tag!

Hallo again,
I´m sorry for a little confusion but I was advised in a consultation that
historisms, i.e. historic terms have their accurate place in linguistics,
and therefore should remain. They name the things which do not exist
anymore. Although I´ve thought this could be managed by "Subject History"
as it is being done in DE-EN part of the distionary, now I´d still
ask for letting the  [hist.] tag here.
Maybe we should wait a couple of days if any new reaction appears.
Thank you for your effort.
Tags changed!  #721752
by Paul (AT), 2013-08-23, 15:19  Spam?  
- [kniž.] added
- [fig.] changed to [obr.] (and terms in DE-SK and EN-SK changed accordingly)
- [hist.] - no change yet, not sure if necessary
- [poet.] added
- niekt. removed

I'm not sure if I picked the most logical order of the tags. If you want me to change it, just tell me.
Thanks for the proposal and your work!
by Heflamoke (DE/HU), 2013-08-25, 16:33  Spam?  
I also changed the DE/SK entries now. There's been just 2 I couldn't edit, because of the VP5 + 3rd reopen restriction.
by renbyska (SK), 2013-08-25, 17:00  Spam?  
Thank you, Heflamoke, for all involvement and assistance. I´m afraid, there is a lot more of dok./nedok. entries in both Slovak dictionaries that have been verified until now and need to be reopened. But I think we will manage it step by step.

Hello friends,

can anyone please translate these three words? They are not necessarily connected to create a logical sentence.

Here is the link:

I am pretty sure it is from Slovakia/Czech Republic, maybe Russia

Thanks in advance!

If it is still of any use, please, put these words down here. I prefer not to enter unknown links.
by Heflamoke (DE/HU), 2013-08-04, 00:56  Spam?  
The link is safe (soundcloud, known site). She recorded 3 words there, the first meaning "street" (ulica). Couldn't make out the other 2 tho, sorry.

by renbyska (SK), 2013-08-05, 16:55  Spam?  
These three words are from Russian and I put them down in Latin transcription in Slovak:
1. "ulica" - "street
2. "plaťje" - "dress"
3. "podpis" - "signature"

Good morning,

I would like to surprise a Slovak friend (f.) of me with a Christmas card in Slovak. I hope you can help me to translate the following correctly! :-)

Look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Martina,

With this card I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas with - of course - lots of snow! In addition, I am wishing you a very happy and prosperous 2013! I hope that it will be a very good year in which we will get our Masters degree.

Enjoy your holidays in Slovakia and I look forward to seeing you in the next year!

Exceptionally - this is not a translation service.

Milá Martina,
rád by som ti touto kartou zaželal šťastné a veselé Vianoce, samozrejme s kopou snehu! Ďalej Ti prajem šťastný a úspešný nový rok 2013! Dúfam, že to bude dobrý rok, v ktorom získame magisterský titul (alt. v ktorom budeme promovať).

Uži si prázdniny na Slovensku a teším sa, že Ťa uvidím budúci rok.

Áno (ak je to ono).
"...The proposed infrastructure, called the data ring, enables users to share and search their data with minimal effort; the user points to the data that

Hi, i will appreciate if anyone can translate me the following :

" A martinke sa potila "hriva"

tetula to bol prvy koment ktory bol hned zapisany do mojho telefonu co zas martinka strelila! ZOBRALA SOM SI AJ GUMICKU KED SA MI BUDE POTIT TA HRIVA! no skoro som padla mam to zapisane "
"... hriva"  #672107
by renbyska (SK), 2012-09-04, 08:37  Spam?  
If it´s still of any use now, I would like explain that "hriva" means "mane" in animal world (i.e. with lion), here it is a slang or coll. expression meaning "hair". "Martinke sa potila hriva" means "Martinka´s hair sweated", or, better the skin upon which the hair grows.
kora » answer

Hi There,

What does the Slovak word 'kóra' mean? I have found it in a weather report and it referred to the quality of the snow surface (if I understand well).

Thanks for your help in advance.

aniko  #647962
by bacek73 (CZ), 2012-03-22, 07:41  Spam?  
Maybe crust?
The hard top layer of the snow.

by aniko (HU), 2012-03-24, 20:09  Spam?  
Thanks for answering.
In the meantime I asked my slovak teacher and he also described it as the upper layer of the snow that had melted once and than frozen again and so formed an icy 'crust'.
So crust seems to be a good 'solution'.
Thanks again.

Please use the German forum for questions about guidelines, at least for the time being, as most of the discussions about rules are the same for German and English and we need to discuss them in one place.
