common and not polite at all - zabole me!
Ooh, also, for a slightly different meaning of "I don't care", you can say, "Sve mi je jedno", which literally means something like "It's all the same/equal to me" So I suppose it's more like "I don't mind", but I like it because it's simple and common, yet fairly polite at the same time.

Pronunciation questions...

Troicki = troy-it-ski? In Serbian isn't a "c" pronounced "ts"?

And "Djokovic"...I have heard so many different pronunciations lately I don't know which one to believe. Dj-oh-ko-vitch, dj-ah-ko-vitch, dj-oh-ka-vitch?

As far as I know, yes to Viktor's name

Novak's name is always a mystery to me but I always thought it was the first

I did too. I thought Serbian was pretty "you see a letter, you say a sound", whereby each letter basically had just one sound. So then both o's would be "oh". But maybe Serbian's not as easy as that

the funny thing is that I usually know 17695147 ways to say stuff impolitely but struggle to find the polite one

gubi se, nestani, nosi se, odlazi, udalji se itd. mostli not polite ways to say go away.

you were right, it is easy as that.

o is always oh. except that our pronounciation of vocals is a bit longer than in 'pot' for example.

So then is it Dj-o(as in pot)-ko-vitch? I was just getting used to Dj-oh(long o)-ko-vitch

It's not only their variant, we also say it that way...I even use superlative of lepo -> Hvala najlepše

now I'm confused.

I said o in serbian is pronounced longer that in 'pot' but shorter than in 'more' for example.

something like in spanish (if you speak it)
Anyway!! let's make an audio file! explaining pronounciation this way is way to hard.

Confusion abounds! To prove this, I almost wrote :confusion: instead of : rolls : Now that would be a funny smiley.

Anyway, I think an audio file would be the best thing. Does anyone know of an audio file or video clip of someone saying it the right way?

Yeah, my serbian friends always say that - there are a million variations on the impolite.slangy way of saying things but its really hard to find polite ways to say words.



As for the Djokovic pronounciations. Its a mystery... I wouldn't be suprised if Novak knew how to say his name properly.
