Wendish Adverbs for “Year”

Wendish (unless otherwise specified, Wendish = Upper Sorbian) has three adverbs for “year”:

  • loni (“last year”)
  • lětsa (“this year”)
  • klětu (“next year”)

Two other words one might easily confuse are lěto (“year”) and lěćo (“summer”).    

Also, don’t confuse the above words with lěs/lěsk (“forest”/”copse of trees”). The latter is a good example of the diminutive in Wendish. It means literally “little forest.”
