Slovak: the most beautiful Slavic language?

Post by Jackal » August 5th, 2010, 12:46 pm

I've always found Slovak to be the most beautiful Slavic language. I think they use more vowels in Slovak, so it sounds much smoother to my western ears.

Here's a clip of two Slovak women speaking naturally during a news interview:



What do you think?

Sounds melodic. Not as many sibilants as in Polish and not as abrupt as Czech. I cannot understand it well when spoken but if you write it down, I can get it Ok.
It does sound similar to Ukrainian in melody.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!

This is so close to Czech, which I speak, that I can't be an impartial judge. Slovak has some sounds in it that Czech doesn't, such as L', and doesn't have the hacek-R (ř), which tends to make it sound "softer" than Czech. I always found Czech girls talking to sound a little like baby talk.

By the way, that Slovak girl is a knockout!

I just fell in love. Holy shiiiit, she is just perfect! She is so natural, so NOT fake compared to American selfish queens...

I heard great things about Slovakia from many of my friends. Lifestyle there seems to be very good, nature is beautiful and people very welcoming and inviting. It seems like a country that got the best of East and West. I would love to go visit.

I agree with Ladislav, I can understand most of it when written, but spoken is a bit hard. It sounds similar to Polish to me, which I also understand somewhat.

And Slovak has an "ä" sound (like the "a" in "cat"), which Czech doesn't have.

That chick is some kind of celebrity in Slovakia, so it's not like she's just some girl off the street. I thought she'd be a pop singer, but I saw her doing magic in another video, so who the hell knows?

I agree. Perfect face and really nice voice. I'm mainly attracted to girls like her, Yulia Dorosh, and Vera. All of them have perfect faces and are 10/10s.
