7369Re: [S-R] Re: Hungarian town location?
- Jun 7, 2003Vladimir: I have been using an online English to Slovak translation site - http://www.dcsoft.sk/mac/qdictsearch/index.phtml - in order to send an email to
a relative in Poprad. The explanation given for the English word "about" is shown to be "o" (lower case). Am I interpreting this correctly? Does the
upper case "O" mean something different, ie. "old"?
Thank you for your help.
