Hi again! I don't know if I'll ever go that far and buy "Teach yourself Czech" but at the moment all I have is just a little phrase book that was really both useful and fun to use while I was in Prague I came to grips with greetings and civilties and now I know at least how to start a conversation in Czech... One thing I'm curious about now is greetings... wishing someone a "good morning". I know there are at least three ways to do that: "Dobry den" this is for the whole day and this is clear, "Dobry rano" and here I know "rano" means "morning" and finally "Dobry jitro" and this is not that clear... I suppose "jitro" means "morning too but what's the difference between "rano" and "jitro". The word "jitro" reminds me of the Polish "jutro" which means "tomorrow". I think these two words have a common root being Polish and Czech closely related but what does "jitro" exatly mean? Can this word be used to talk about the early hours of the day? Can we say "It's a beautiful morning" in Czech using both "rano" and "jitro"? "Je nejaky rano/jitro (this is my rough attempt at translating this sentence). I know only one way to wish someone a good night and that's "Dobrou noc" but what has always puzzled me is the answer I often get that is just "dobrou". Now this is not a big deal but I'm just curious that's all I know that "Hello" in Czech is "Ahoj" but I often heard people say a word sounding like "Cau". Is that Czech at all? It reminds me of the Italian word "Ciao". Could it be? By the way I'm Italian myself ;-) Thank you again for your help and attention!!
