Saša, better known as The Dread Pirate Queen, and David talk about various greetings in Slovak. Alexander Graham Bell gets a mention, somehow.

Pronunciation tip:

This common word still needs the stress on the first (short) syllable, even though the second syllable is longer:

a-hoj.

The common farewell/greeting “ciao” is written in Slovak as čau.
