    That's wierd because in America we would use pig to describe a nasty person but in the meaning of physically dirty. We would never use cow to describe personality.

    I think the use of cow to describe something over done or big or a lot stems from the days when almost everyone in the States were farmers and a cow is the largest farm animal. But that is just my reasoning, I don't know this for sure.

    Don't think we really use such words 8)
    But it is a good example of the way the Czech language constructs derivatives from elementary words.

    nej - superlativ
    ne - negation
    z - finishing
    pravdě = pravda (truth)
    podobný = similar
    pravděpodobnost = probability, likelihood
    vávat - repetition
    ný = ně adjective
    nější = comparativ

    pravděpodobný - likely, presumable
    zpravděpodobnostňovávat - often make st more presumable
    even this we would not normally use, but we would understand it
    etc. 8) 8)

    :D Of course we didn't think that word's useful. My Czech teacher gave it as a form for example of longest word in Czech language ! Unhappily, I didn't have any chance to use that word :lol: " ani jednou"

    And we have here the longest place name :D


    The city of angels, the great city, the residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city (of Ayutthaya) of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukarn.

    Pozor We should have Oxygen vessel when trying to spell it ! :D
