Along with all other Slavic languages, Russian and Slovak descend from a proto-language called Proto-Slavic, descending from earlier Proto-Balto-Slavic language. There are over 20 different Slavic languages, divided into 3 major subgroups, with Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian belonging to the East group, Polish, Czech and Slovak to the West group, and Slovene, Serbo-Croatian, Macedonian and Bulgarian to the South group.
In today’s language challenge, we will compare some of the similarities between these two Slavic languages, with Bogdana (Russian speaker) and Linda (Slovak speaker) challenging each other with a list of words and sentences.
Russian is an East Slavic language and an official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and many minor or unrecognized territories. It is an unofficial but widely spoken language in Latvia, Moldova, Ukraine and to a lesser extent, the other post-Soviet states.
Slovak is a West Slavic language. Slovak is the official language of Slovakia, and is also native to the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, and a portion of western Ukraine.
