      Predmet: [S-R] grandparents' names



      My mother's parents were from Saris and Spis, and my father's parents were
      from Zemplin.

      One thing they were in total agreement on, was that grandparents were
      called
      "dzeda" and "baba". Apparently this is the Spis dialect?

      Never heard anyone call him "old father" = "stary otec".
