Slavish isn't a national language, as such.
It was a term used by some Slovak/Hungarian/Slavic
immigrants to describe the dialect that was spoken
in the old homeland.
Due to cross-cultural influences and geography,
"pure" Slavic languages were subject to change.
For example, in the Carpathians, you could find
people speaking different dialects from one
mountain area to the other. Most of the time,
strangers from different areas could understand
each other. But, with certain words or phrases,
there could be problems.
Hope this helps.
