Word of the Day

Today I heard Laďoveho, as in Viděl sem Laďoveho syna. (I have seen Láďa's son.), declined as a regular adjective, for the first time. Possessive adjectives follow another declension pattern in standard language: Viděl jsem Láďova syna. Also note short vowels in Laďoveho, a characteristic of this northeastern dialect, which is not very fond of long vowels. Laďoveho reminds me of standard Slovak declension Láďovho. Standard Slovak is more regular than standard Czech in several aspects.
