Interesting Serbian fact of the day

The only English word with Serbian etymology is vampire. Recently those bloodsuckers have wooed the hearts of teenagers everywhere so Serbs are proud of this popular word in its heyday. It's pronounced much differently, though. The easiest part of the Slavic languages is that words are pronounced exactly as written. Each character has one and only one sound which is always articulated. So vampire is vamp eee ray.

Happy last day of February!
