Can you say/write Czech instead of Czech Republic (meaning the country) or are there no ways to shorten the name?
I`m sorry, 1516, but there is no shorter name for the Czech Republic.Can you say/write Czech instead of Czech Republic (meaning the country) or are there no ways to shorten the name?
First I wanted to send you flowers for that right note that Czechoslovakia no longer exists, but then I saw that thing with Soviet Republics and I changed my mind.1516, Are you referring to the one part of former Czechoslovakia, or to one of the former Soviet Republics?
Hi 1516, as the other posters have said, "the Czech Republic" is the only good English way to say it. After the two countries split, there was a move in the Czech Republic to have the name "Czechia" adopted, but it never caught on. It just doesn't sound English.... are there no ways to shorten the name?
"Czecho" is used in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy to refer to Czechoslovakia. The action was around Brno. Was "Czecho", in the day that the story is set, used to refer to just the Czech-speaking part?Enquiring Mind said:You can say (colloquially) "I'm off to Czecho next week"
