Language faux pas!

Okay, lesson learned today.

голем град=  Big City (pronounced Golem Grahd) For many words in Macedonian you form the plural by adding и to the end of the noun. Not so with this particular noun. The plural is градови (pronounced Grahd-oh-vee)

голем гради = Big Breast (pronounced Golem Grahd ee)

No further explanation needed.

  1. Certainly need to be careful how a word or phrase is pronounced. I would likely be in big trouble. 🙂
