I had ordered a used copy of Teach Yourself Slovene off Amazon a while back. I'm not planning on going beyond what this book teaches, so should be interesting to see how far I get. You could call this a side project. :)
Slovenia used to be part of Yugoslavia, but the language is considered different enough not to be grouped with Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian. I'm still not clear on whether Bosnian is considered a separate language. I do have a Bosnian dictionary, but it could probably just as easily have been labeled a Serbian or Croatian dictionary. Of course like most language books, pronunciation is gone over first. This part feels rushed. For instance, they don't tell you how the letter C should sound. I've been pronouncing it like "ts" just because that's how it's typically pronounced in other Slavic languages, but maybe Slovenian is different? I don't have the recordings, so will have to look online to fill in the details.
These are languages I'm dropping, because I will never get used to the whole pitch accent thing... >Estonian >Latvian >Lithuanian >Norwegian Gotta downsize. It's the only answer to my obsession. :D I'm planning on setting up a way to purchase the books I have thru PayPal. Prices will be reasonable. Most of the books I have were purchased used to begin with. My hope and plan is to get that setup by Wednesday, so stay tuned if interested.
I'm hopeless. Now I want to try to learn Korean again just from hearing them talk. 😂 As for the pizza, New York style is my favorite. I've never had Detroit style - reminded me of French bread pizza. It's been forever since I've had Chicago style, so I have no opinion on that one. They should've done St. Louis style too. I'm not really from Missouri so I'm perfectly comfortable with saying, it's not that great but not terrible either (In Defense of St. Louis-Style Pizza - never thought of viewing it more as nachos but that is kind of true.) I'm also perplexed about the pickle thing...
