a bad insect

Postby drama putra » 2007-03-08, 22:54

Please translate, dear Slovenians. It´s about an insect. It lives in the grass and attacks animals and people in the springtime. English: tick, Deutsch: Zecke. How you call it in Slovenian?
Thanks

It is called klòp.
(o is open/wide and short; if you mispronounce it by a close/narrow o, you'll get a bench instead - klóp :wink: )

Ah, if it would attack us only in springtime. Unfortunatelly he's active all the times but winter.

Not to be pedantic, but a tick is not an insect; it is an arachnid. See, for example, the article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tick

The first post in the Slovenian forum after ages and it's nothing to do with Slovenian at all.

Ah, well, at least I found out that spiders are not insects. You learn something new every day.

I guess the forum administrators can remove Slovenian from the list of forums who need a moderator. The forum already is as moderate as it can get.
