    What do these phrases mean? Jak kdy, Jak kdo, Jak kde. I have the following example in my textbook:

    A nelezou si všichni v jednom domě na nervy? 'Jak kdy' říká Filip.

    Could someone give me some other examples?

    All there phrases have similar meaning
    it's like English "it depends" or "sometimes" or "on some occasion"

    Jak kdy

    Jak kdo
    it depends who is involved

    Jak kde
    it depends where it happens

    Normally Jak = How
    Kdy = When
    and Někdy = sometimes

    někdy - sometime
    někde - somewhere
    někdo - someone

    nikdy - 'notime' (never)
    nikde - nowhere
    nikdo - no one

    nějaky = some as in "a" if you listen to a Czech person speak English and hear how often they say "some" when they should say "a" you'll get an idea how it's used I think.
    "So I picked up some pen and started writing" for example.

    (I'm only learning too so please correct me when I make mistakes!)
