word of the day

a7961ba897af961374e740210d84d413The word of the day is “Hračky”, which I found on this matchbox label that I collected for its cool cartoon of a tram.  Rather than having anything to do with trams, hračky is the Czech word for “toys”, which also works with the illustration.

Click here to find a considerable number of Czech model sentences (with English translations) that illustrate various uses of this word, including one that suggests that hračky is also the Czech word for “gadget”.

And that works with my recent discovery that a software upgrade has given the virtual keyboard on my tablet a “press to choose” option for typing all kinds of interesting diacriticals– like č, so handy for writing about words in Czech.
