Characteristics of Czech language

Czech language is not only spoken by the citizens of the Czech Republic but it can also be used by those in Slovakia when it comes to documentation for official proceedings. It is also a legal requirement for all products that are marketed in the country to have instructions printed in Czech language. There are 24 official languages that are used in the European Union, the Czech language is one of these.

Czech syntax is extremely free, a trait shared with other Slavic languages such as, for example, Russian. It also has a very rich morphology, which hinders their learning by speakers of other languages.

Unusually Czech does not have vowels in every single word. This is also the case in other languages such as Serbian, Croatian and Slovak. For example the Czech word for ‘frozen solid’ is Zmrzl and the word for ‘shrunk’ is scvrkl.

 

Short history of the Czech language

With over 12 million Czech speakers in the world, the language started out being known as Bohemian until early in the 20th century. Czech language can be compared to Slovak as it is mutually intelligible. It also has links with the Sorbian languages and other Slavic language collection.

In the Middle Ages, Czech was one of the primary and most important languages in Central Europe being used, much like English is today. There are some words and names found in Latin manuscripts from the 10th Century that are in fact, Czech, as well as a 13th century hymn that is written in Czech. But the name Czech was not popular until earlay 20th century. The language was known as Bohemain: the King of Bohemia one of the seven electors of the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Gold mines had not been exploited by the Romans in the region, and so the Kingdom became a tax-free state whose strength was based on the massive number of (often German and Swiss) mercenaries that it could recruit almost without limit. The wealth of the Czech mines ensured the power of the Kingdom until their exhaustion.
