 Another fun lesson from Serbian 701 Online Course, based on the following video:

2. Next, you can now watch the video again from the same second and try to figure out what each interviewee says about their favorite football team. O čemu pričaju?

    a. Za koji tim oni navijaju? 
    b. Odakle su?
    c. Kako su zavoleli ovaj tim?

Kad si se zagrejao baš za tu kompjutersku igricu? 
    d. misliti - zamisliti
Nikad nisam mislio da ću navijati za Liverpul! Zamisli mene pre pet godina, nisam ni znao gde je Liverpul, ni šta je fudbal :D

Exercises with Songs in Serbian - Serbian 701

Exercises with Songs in Serbian


What about practicing Serbian with this lovely, ancient song by Radmila Karaklajić? I think I was in love with this song at the age of three or four :D It helped me learn Serbian for sure, but also it would always cheer me up.  I hope it does the same for you.



Practicing Serbian with Songs

Make sure you change the speed in the settings (down on the right) - the perfect would be 0.75, but you can also opt for 0.5.

PO- Prefix with Verbs - Serbian 701

One of the common and very productive ways of expanding a verb meaning is the process of "prefixation" in Serbian. While in English this additional meaning is conveyed through use of different tenses or prepositions in phrasal verbs, at a sentence level, in Serbian it is achieved through only one word, at the lexicology level.

Today we are talking about PO- prefix and its meanings.

Meaning of Po- Prefix in Serbian

There are five main meanings of PO- prefix when added to a verb. These are as follows:
  1. making a perfective verb out of an imperfective one: jesti - pojesti
  2. adding up "distributive meaning", often combined with the word "sve": krasti - pokrasti (there will be a special post dedicated to this)
  3. beginning of the action: leteti -  poleteti
  4. spatial meaning (additional meaning "over") : bacati -  pobacati
  5. action which lasts for a long time: živeti - poživeti

Exercise with Po- Prefix in Serbian

Let me add five lists of verbs for which you have to decide which group they belong to:

Can you think of any other examples?

Here are some of my ideas:

  1. pokisnuti
  2. poleteti
  3. pozlatiti
  4. pokrenuti 
  5. polupati
  6. posvađati 
  7. porazbijati
  8. pokrasti



Examples with Po- Prefix in Serbian Literature

Here comes the famous story Sve će to narod pozlatiti by Laza Lazarević, written back in 1881. 




- What is the meaning of the noun ZLATO and verb POzlatiTI?
- What meaning(s) does this prefix add?
- What is the gist of the story?
