Over at Scott MacMillan’s blog, there’s a good post about one of the harder words in Czech to pin down – narod which, as he points out not only means “nation” but also “people” or “nationality.”

I’ve always been interested in the way Europeans define nationality. A Turkish person living in Germany may be the second generation born in Germany, but still won’t be considered a German, for example. It’s a pretty thought-provoking piece by Scott, and maybe some of the other Czech speakers would like to add their own interpretations?
