Alternative forms[edit]


From slovāks ‎(Slovak) +‎ -isks.


slovākisks (def. slovākiskais, comp. slovākiskāks, sup. visslovākiskākais; adv. slovākiski)

  1. Slovak (relating to the Slovak language; relating to Slovaks or to Slovakia)
    viņiem ir slovākiska izcelsme — they are of Slovak origin


Usage notes[edit]

  • English “Slovak” as an attributive adjective usually correponds in Latvian to slovāku, the genitive plural form of slovākis. The adjective slovākisks is commonly used as a predicate (“this is Slovak”), or in its adverbial form slovākiski.
  • The forms with short a (Slovakija, slovaks, slovakisks, etc.) have been officially replaced by the forms with long ā (Slovākija, slovāks, slovākisks, etc.); they are, however, found in older texts, and still occasionally in present-day texts.
