Looking at Slavic Languages: Parts of the body
Can you give the names for these in Ukrainian, Russian and the language used in the former Yugoslavia (SCB/BCS/CBS)?
Back (top of the body)
Cryillic is okay. I'm looking for words that would be understood by educated speakers in any age group. Thank-you.
I believe that BCS is most PC because it's in alphabetic order.
Neck (front) - vrat
Neck (nape) - potiljak, zatiljak
Back (top of the body) - leđa (ledja)
toe/toes - prst na nozi/prsti na nozi, nožni prst/nožni prsti
Thank-you, Guest. I've started to see BCS as well, but sometimes "our language" or BHS. Finally there are some textbooks discussing this language and its variants/these three languages.
What about these in other Slavic languages?
front neck- krk
back neck- šíje
toes- prsty (na noze)
neck - sheya
nape - zatylok
back - spina
toe - palets nogi
Maybe you will be interested in Bulgarian, too:
Neck (front) - shiya
Neck (nape) - vrat
Back (top of the body) - grub
toe/toes - prust / prusti
Note: U is pronounced like in hut
Neck (front) - szyja
Neck (nape) - kark
Back (top of the body) - plecy
toe/toes - palec/palce u nogi
Thanks to all who participated.
