Hi all, Soon to be off to teach a course there, and at the end of a somewhat exhausting lecture, I'd like to wish the students good luck for embarking on this particular topic. So, from the internet, I've discovered that the oak leaf is a symbol of luck - is that correct? Is there a more appropriate one I could use? And what's the actual word for good luck, and how do you pronounce it? Many thanks in advance, Nomes
Symbol of luck is definetely four leaf clover. Here it is pronounciation, and clover leaf symbol. (Clover leaf is "detelina" in serbian :-)
I have a whole clump of four-leaf clover growing in my garden.
Thanks LOADS Wegga, I shall adjust my presentation accordingly. And, I did wonder if the ć meant č!

Quote: weggaWhen you are going down there? I'm going in February!LOL - me too, Wega. :D Dates are not finally set yet but shall we pencil in some drinks at "Absinthe" or "Insomnia". ;)
:D (I'll be there from 17. till 25.)
So a belated Sretna Nova Godina?....:D
next, a montenegrian joke for you: Montenegrian guy asked Serbian guy: "Where ar you going for your holidays this year?" "I think I'll go to Turquey!" "Why Turquey, you were allways coming to Montenegro!" "Well, its warmer sea, its cheaper, and we were longer in the same country"

Very good - I often call one of my Montenegrian friends who has black and wavy hair - Mehmet - he laughs and says that that was probably who great, great, .... babicka met in the field. I'll save the joke about Montenegrian Foreplay for the "Absinthe". :)
