"hlúpy" is simply stupid, not clever.

"trápny" is.. hmm, how to explain it - for example, older man dancing hip-hop should be "trápny" for young people - but there is nothing wrong or stupid to dance :-) or is it? :-D

maybe awkward should be a good translation to "trápny"

-------------------

and question is better with "aký", not "čo"

aký je rozdiel medzi A a B.

or you can use "čo" in sentence like this: čo je rozdielom medzi A a B? - which is almost word-to-word translation of "what is a difference between A and B?".

but you are pretty good in slovak - everything is OK and average slovak can understand to your speech :-) good work.

Oke... Rozumiem. :D Vd'aka.

Ak Polemic povedal...

"Keď sa ráno zobudíš
a nervy máš už v ťahu
z postele sa odplazíš
a dáš si prvú kávu - trápny deň"

there is only a small difference, you can use both..

but, "iste" is mostly used, when you (personaly) hope for something and there is a big chance for success (or not success, if you hope for fail :-D )

for example - "iste príde" is something like "he will come for sure", but in case that you only hope for it, because for example there is a good weather, etc. - so there is no problem, why he could not come.

and "určite príde" is in english almost the same "he will come for sure", but with more than hope - he will come, no matter what.

but as I said, it is 99 percent the same, you can use both - but I think that we (slovaks) use it in slightly different "mind status" :-D hard to explain... but you can imagine it like "iste" is a bit less sure that "určite" - like 99 vs. 100 percent :-)

aj - príklad: Prišiel Peter aj Pavol = Peter and Pavol came (in meaning of together or both)

tiež - príklad: Peter prišiel a Pavol tiež = Peter came and Pavol (came) too

chladný a studený is almost the same - but I think I am using studený for more colder things.

zima is:

1. winter - season in year

2. cold - for example in sentence "je tu zima" - it is cold here.

In this case should I treat it like an adjective?

we usually use "priniesť" incase, that you bring it on your feet or you do not know, how exactly.

ex: Priniesol som Ti darček.

and now - do you mean "priviesť" or "priviezť"?

priviesť - bring someone else (with me, you, etc), but person, not a thing

ex: Priviedol som kamarátku Janku.

priviezť - similar to "priniesť", but not on your feet - maybe bike, car, or even train.

ex: Priviezol som Ti darček.

ísť - to go somewhere, only once

chodievať - to go somewhere regularly, ore than once

examples:

Idem do obchodu - I go to the shop (only this time)

Chodievam do obchodu - I (regularly) go to the shop (for example, every day or every saturday or so)

You can also sometimes view a words with similar ending -ievať (base form), which is one of the sign of regularity. Chodievať is this form from a word "chodiť".

examples:

robím - I am doing/working (I am talking about this job which I am doing now)

robievam - I regularly do/work

učím - I teach

učievam - I am teaching regularly

Tak, chodit' a ist' su zamenitel'ne? Je ziadny rozdiel medzi "Chodime do obchodu" a "Ideme na potraviny"?

So, chodit' and ist' are interchangeable? There's no difference in usage between "Chodime na potraviny" and "Ideme na potraviny"?

No, not exactly. Chodiť represents the imperfect aspect, while ísť the prefect aspect, so chodiť a continuous action, while ísť an action performed only once, so:

Chodíme do obchodu = We are going to the store (on a regular basis)
Ideme na potraviny = We are going to buy groceries (but only this one time)

yupp, that works..

'chodievam' is just another form of 'chodim'. It emphasizes the fact that it's a regular activity. But you can just say 'chodim' in this case and it's still fine.

Rozdiel je v rode: "obaja/obidvaja" - mužský rod, "obe/obidve" - ženský rod.

The difference is in the gender: "obaja/obidvaja" - masculine, "obe/obidve" - feminine.
