- Oct 29, 2005Dolores, you are absolutely correct. Jak se mate is the proper form
to show respect to an elder or someone in authority such as a priest,
even though jak se mate is the plural form. You should always use
the plural form, vy, when addressing an elder instead of the singular

>Andrea, You may be correct, however, I think yak se mate is to show respect to a priest, pastor or an older person. It is plural. Young folks like us (ha--ha) just get the singular jak se mas. I will check with my Czech friend to be sure. My friend wants to join the Texas Czechs and I can't remember.
