it sounds funny when english ppl say “Volkswagen” which means Car of the Folk… Volk = Folk.. Wagen = Car :D

The term “people” or “populus” would be better I think. “Folk” generally translates to “simple folk”, while the volk are just the people in general.

And don’t mention the german Vater, Vati, Fahrtwind, Gute fahrt etc. – that’s hilarously funny for english people.

funny is how similar and in the same time different are polish and slovak language. Most of polish people can talk with slovak people and understand each other, but for example, in polish “szukac” means looking for sth, and in slovak “szukac” means making love in rude way :D. So you can imagine what problems you can have when you’re looking for something in Slovakia ;)

Heh. In Swedish, Prosit means “bless you” (like when someone sneeze) :P
