Bavarian and Bohemian Brothers?

The language barrier…
GALLERY
Before you begin to busy yourself with the complexities of the Bohemian language- Slavic languages are notoriously complex and abound with cases and more than one parallel tense- you will see that the Bohemian dialects and vocabulary are really very similar to their Bavarian counterparts.

This is not a švindl- one can see how the Slavic and the German languages have met, swapped ideas and moved on- even as far as England. If your head hurts because someone hit you with a Štok (stick)… or if štrudlik (strudel) is on the menu- many terms have traveled a long way though it will become clear that most similarities to a large extent are due to their geographic proximity and are mirrored in the kitchen and their similar culinary tastes. It is of course polite to have a few basic phrases on hand when one is out and about.
Therefore here the most important greetings:

Hello - ahoj
Good morning - dobré ráno
Good day - dobrý den
Good evening - dobrý večer
Good night - dobrou noc
How do you do? - Jak se máte?
I am well - mám se dobře
Bon appétit - dobrou chut".
How do you say that? Don’t worry about the accents over the letters- * on top of a c means it is a ch, the * over the s is pronounced sh, * over the r is like an rsh, like in Dvořák. D is softened to a dy as is n to a ny, like in Koňak (Cognac). Just a little Cukr (sugar) pronounced tzuker to sweeten it all and the mix is made!
