    Could anybody tell me the slang forms of personal pronouns? I've heard things like eg. 's mojim autem' instead of 's mym autem and 'vidim tvojiho syna' instead of 'vidim tveho syna.
    Is this a nationwide thing or just North Bohemia? How common are they? I'd be really grateful if someone could write a table for me.

    Sorry if it was a difficult or boring question but I'd really like to know if anybody could spare the time?
    Something like -
    1st - muj, moje, moje. pl.
    2nd - meho, meho, me.

    etc. except about the slang endings cuz I can't find a table for them anywhere.

    Here in central Bohemia it's:

    standard Czech -> colloquial Czech
    můj -> muj
    tvůj -> tvuj
    mého -> mýho
    tvého -> tvýho
    mému autu -> mýmu autu
    tvému autu -> tvýmu autu
    moje auto -> mý auto
    tvoje auto -> tvý auto
    mým bratrům -> mejm bratrům
    tvým bratrům -> tvejm bratrům

    It is very simple: decline můj/tvůj/svůj like náš/váš (replace the stem naš-/vaš- by moj-/tvoj-/svoj-):

    našemu otci -> mojemu otci
    vaší matce -> tvojí matce

    In the Literary Czech the forms with -ůj and -oj- are only in the nominative/accusative, other cases have only contracted (short) forms. The nominative/accusative have both contracted and long forms (moje matka = má matka).

    Some long forms are still acceptable (mojí matce, s mojí matkou), others sound terribly (k mojim rodičům).

    BTW, the contracted forms of můj/tvůj/svůj are specific for the Czech language, in other Slavic languages they are rare.

    Polish uses both forms:

    mojego = mego, mojemu = memu, moim = mym, etc.
    (see http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix: ... declension)

    Thanks a lot for that everybody.
    I'll still use the written forms but very good to know finally.
    I might be being stupid and missing the obvious, probably am, but what does BTW stand for!? I've got a mental block.
