Czech – a Slavic language with Germanic roots
The Czech language belongs to the Western-Slavic languages, which makes it quite difficult for both learners – Czech and German – to learn the particular language. Nevertheless, Czech shows overlaps with German words. It is a big advantage to know some general vocabulary in Czech to be able to get around in the Czech Republic’s beautiful cities.
The difference between colloquial, commonly spoken and written Czech is a deterrent for many language learners. Furthermore, the Czech alphabet is extended by many vowel mutations, which can lead to confusions for learners of Czech. Thanks to the Langenscheidt Czech-German dictionary, learners are guided from the beginning while learning Czech.
The Langenscheidt Czech-German dictionary is a must-have tool
The updated Czech-German dictionary, based on the Czech pocket dictionary, provides about 230.000 keywords, phrases and translations, going beyond the general vocabulary of the modern Czech language. Furthermore, important terms related to culture, science, technology, economy, politics and sports are provided.
Besides numerous neologisms, a great number of colloquial and vulgar words and phrases have been added to the dictionary. Supported by numerous explanatory references – abbreviations of subject areas, stylistic levels and grammatical specifications – the user is always led to the right translation. The present data is the result of the longstanding work of the author Stanislaw Walewski and Prof. Dr. Erwin Wedel.
