Subject: Re: [TexasCzechs] name endingCzech grammar 101 addendumThe whole group is missing a fine point of the Czech grammar.If the word, in this case name, ends with "long a" Jana Kováøová - it is just a female gender of name Kováø (blacksmith) . It has nothing to do with being married or single; it is just a female name format.If the word ends with short a kováøova kobyla we have blacksmiths horse (mare).If the form is Kováøova kobyla we have a mare belonging to someones named Kováø.So, in closingKováøova kobyla chodi bosaEnglish equivalentShoemakers daughter goes barefoot.Václav
