"Every village has its voice"
- Slovene saying

Slovene "is a beautiful language, as beautiful and unique (spoken by only two million people in the world) as any, but it has a mind-blowing forty-eight dialects, split further into countless sub-groups. There is a Slovenian saying “Every village has its voice,” and this is strikingly true if you travel around the countryside and hear the way people speak at home. Some of these dialects are so different that even the Slovenes can’t understand each other, let alone other Slavic nations... Slovene is one of the last languages left in the world that has retained the dual grammatical number from Proto-Indo-European. Oh, and we those lovely letters like č, ž, š, and best of all, we love to combine them into charming clusters like “škržat” or even “čmrlj”- not a single vowel in it!"  - Helena Marco 'Slovenia Times'(2)
