Try not to let it get to you. ;-)

Let me guess...all those who do are Americans. And I wouldn't doubt there are still people who say "Czechoslovkian", which probably makes you bristle. It reminds me of this panel from the webcomic, "Scandinavia and the World":<br />

<br />
My first learning of the difference was as a kid in the 1980s, when the first Czechoslovkian hockey pla<x>yers entered the NHL. Two of them were Czechs, Ivan Hlinka (later the Czech national team coach) and Jiri Bubla (later a convicted heroin distributor). <br />
<br />
They both went to the Vancouver Canucks. The Canucks had a Canadian pla<x>yer of Slovakian descent, Rick Lanz, who happened to speak some Slovak. Lanz helped the other two acclimatize to living in Canada. <br />
<br />
Is it true that the Czech and Slovak languages are fairly interchangeable languages?

Best Answer

Yeas they are very similar with slight differences, but we do understand each other. Also it is not just Americans who have no clue about nationalities and geography it is Australians and shamefully even some people from Europe.
I did not know about Bubla how he anded up. Thanks for the highlight.

Best Answer

If I hadn't known Hlinka went onto other successes, I wouldn't have mentioned Bubla's troubles. There's no point mentioning the bad without the good to balance it. ^_^
