- Aug 18, 2014Your problems are very common. I have helped many times to resolve the problems:Slovakia was ruled by Hungary for over 1,000 years. The official language until following WWI was Hungarian.Therefore:
Micar [Mee-tsarr], in Hungarian spelled MiczarHungarian spelling - Styava [Shtyah-vah] Slovak St'ava. There is an accent mark over the S and I will write it here, hoping it will appear on your computer - Šťava, (which means Juice) The Slovak ť is rather difficult for some to pronounce. it is "t", with your tongue Flat, on the roof of your mouth. our American dialects make it hard to compare to our English.I have no explanation for Isjava . [EEsh-yah-vah] I would think it was misspelled
View on www.omniglot.com/writing/slovak.htmYou can learn from: Slovak language, alphabet and pronunciationYou may also use the GOOGLE translation found Here.You will see a small speaker symbol. Using that will help in pronunciation.
Martin Votruba, professor of Slovak Studies, of Pitt University has also provided this type info.
