  • Various kinds of markets (of local, regional, or international importance) also developed in Slovakia, based on regional economic specialization and local requirements. For example, agricultural markets were the most imporant ones in Kos~ice, Rimavska' Sobota, Nitra, Trnava, and Prievidza; markets in Trnava, Kos~ice, and Bratislava were known for their wine; Trnava's market was...

  • No, your friend was not pulling your leg. The English is uniformly bad and at times absolute garbage.

  • Just a note, as I said earlier, I'm not translating this book. It's already been translated into English, but it was a poor translation, so I'm cleaning up the English (as I stated in a much earlier email).

  • These pieces of text aren't scanned--I type each and every one of them with my own fingers, and then clean up the English (editing started in message #28678). That should have been 38, 39, and 40 (typo mine). I said in a much earlier message (#28675) that those kinds of numbers are footnotes and that I was leaving them in in case anyone was interested in the source of that...

  • No, it's not a word-for-word rendering. If you compare what I sent out with the text in the book you'll see that I've changed it to make it more understandable. My opinions come into play when I'm confused by the lousy English in the book and make a guess at what the author meant in the original Slovak. I have no quibbles with the authors, just the translator. H More of my own...

  • Weekly markets, which were mainly for trading agricultural products, took place on one set day each week and/or twice or more per week(38), while the annual markets (fairs with goods for day-to-day consumption) took place once, twice, or more times per year. It was a common practice to designate these markets (fairs) by the names of the saints on whose days they fell. The names of...
