Good to know

In the section entitled “Good to know“, you will read explanations that aim to answer the questions you might ask yourself about the expressions used in the conversation.

* * *

Duša (soul) – a typical endearment. When addressing a dear person we say: dušo! Basic form of this noun is duša. The ending –o appears in the vocative case. And the vocative case is a special form of names and other nouns, used for addressing people. That’s why the names in Serbian sometimes take an odd ending.

Šta ćemo za doručak? (What will we [have] for breakfast?) – verb to have or to eat is implied here, like in other situations after „will“.

For example:

  • Gde ćemo? (Where shall we go?)
  • Gde ćeš? (Where are you going?)
