  • An associate's degree probably isn't equivalent to anything in the Czech system. It is just intended to be the first two years of a four-year university education, including all the "general studies" requirements a student has to take before concentrating on a major. It's only issued by two-year community colleges, and it's not required to continue to the bachelor's degree. However...

  • The art school boy (me) says you can say "stages", "phases", "periods", or if you don't know whether it indicates a time period or not, "aspects". Jamie Thu Sep 25, 2014 2:50 am (PDT) . Posted by: "Mgr. Iveta Pecinkova - Preklady&tlumoceni" Zdravím, potrebuji se nejak vyporadat s casto se vyskytujicim pojmem "poloha" v umìleckém slova smyslu. Napr. "soubor obrazu predstavujici...

  • Was "Pedro a Donald" actually bubble gum or just regular chewing gum? If you could blow bubbles with it, it was bubble gum. Jamie Sun Sep 21, 2014 3:52 am (PDT) . Posted by: "Martin Janda" j_mart22 Hm, asi mas pravdu, ale Zeman - nemam moc duvod ho hajit - sice mluvil s tezkym prizvukem, ale vicemene spontanne a volne (nebo to aspon celkem zdarile predstiral). Sobotka jen zoufale...

  • Dekuju za pozvanku, Petre, ale na Facebook nesmim. Nekolikkrat jsem prosil, ale vzdycky odmitaji. Zrejme jsem tam persona non grata. Jamie Mon Aug 4, 2014 5:33 am (PDT) .

  • I agree with Charlie here, Helena. You can also write "Previous surname", although I prefer Charlie's recommendation, because you might get a mother who is a serial divorcee. Shorter than "Surname at birth" would be "Né" for the man and "Née" for the woman. I don't know if the British still use those, but we can still use them in North America. By the way I was recently asked to...

  • Security and surveillance services. The security guys could be the ones prowling the mall and dealing with the problems, and the surveillance guys are watching the TV monitors in the basement.

  • It's wrong. In American English today that would sound like they're going to get the insurance money before the house burns down. The only place I've found "in case" used to mean "if" in American English is in the prose of certain American novelists writing around the turn of the 20th century. For example, I'm finding it a lot right now in a book I'm reading by Theodore Dreiser...

  • Wholehearted agreement, Valerie, except on this one: > "In case of problems..." is OK, but somewhat impersonal compared to "if > you have" or "should you have.") This still sounds a bit to me as if they are taking a precaution because the problem might occur, not taking action after it occurs. By the way, once when I gave a lesson to two Germans on inversion to produce sentences...

  • In very formal texts I sometimes translate "v pripade" as "in the event that", but it's got to be very formal, because "if" is the more reader-friendly alternative.
