RTR-

Czech players with names ending in "-ova"? Easy explaination.

Slovak tradition is to add the suffix to their husband's surname upon marrying.

Thus, tennis great Martina Navratitlova, who was born Subertova, took on the name of her mother who married Miroslav Navratil. So, in a humorous vein, she's a double yolk.

Some homework reading from Wikipedia:

Slavic countries

Slavic countries are noted for having masculine and feminine versions for many (but not all) of their names. Most of their surnames have suffixes which are found in varying degrees over the different nations. (Of course, many other names do not have suffixes at all.)

Note: the following list does not take regional spelling variations into account.

  • -ov / -ev (-ova/-eva): Russia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Republic of Macedonia, Serbia (especially frequent in Vojvodina), Croatia (rare) (sometimes as -iv in Ukraine); this has been adopted by many non-Slavic peoples of Central Asia who are or have been under Russian rule, such as the Tatars, Chechens, Kyrgyz, Uzbeks, Kazakhs, etc. Note that -ev is the soft form of -ov, found after palatalized consonants or sibilants.
  • -sky (-ska), -ski (-ska), -skiy (-skaya): Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Republic of Macedonia, Serbia (especially in Vojvodina), Croatia.
  • Note that these first two can be combined: -ovsky (-ovska), -owski (-owska): Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia.
  • -ich, -vich, -vych, -ovich, -owicz: Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Republic of Macedonia (rare), occasionally Bulgaria. Yugoslav ex.: Petrović, means Petar's son. In Russia, where patronyms are used, a person would have two -(ov)ich names in a row; first the patronym, then the family name (see Shostakovich).
  • -in (-ina): Russia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Republic of Macedonia (rare)
  • -ko, -nko, -enko: Ukraine, -enkov (-enkova): Russified of Ukrainian origin
  • -ak/-ek/-ik (-akova/-ekova/-ikova): Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Belarus, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, very rarely in Bulgaria.
  • -uk, -yuk: Ukraine
  • -ac/-ec: Slovenia (both versions), Croatia (both versions), Serbia (only -ac), Czech Republic (only -ec), Slovakia (only -ec).

If the name has no suffix, it may or may not have a feminine version. Sometimes it has the ending changed (such as the addition of -a). In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, suffixless names, such as those of German origin, are feminized by adding -ová (for example, Schusterová), but this is not done in neighboring Poland, where feminine versions are used only for -ski (-ska) names (this includes -cki and -dzki, which are phonetically -ski preceded by a t or d respectively) and for other adjectival surnames.

[edit] Czech Republic

Names of Czech people consist of given name (křestní jméno) and surname (příjmení). Usage of the second or middle name is not common. Feminine names are usually derived from masculine ones by a suffix -ová (Nováková) or for names being originally adjectives (Veselá), sometimes with a little change of original name's ending (Sedláčková from Sedláček or Svobodová from Svoboda). Women usually change their family names when they get married. The family names are usually nouns (Svoboda, Král, Růžička, Dvořák, Beneš), adjectives (Novotný, Černý, Veselý) or past participles of verbs (Pospíšil). There is also a couple of names with more complicated origin which are actually complete sentences (Skočdopole, Hrejsemnou or Vítámvás). The most common Czech family name is Novák / Nováková.

In addition, many Czechs and some Slovaks have German surnames due to mixing between the ethnic groups over the past thousand years. Deriving women's names from German and other foreign names is often problematic since foreign names do not suit Czech language rules, although most commonly -ová is simply added (Schmidtová; umlauts are simply dropped), or the German name is respelled with Czech spelling (Šmitová). Hungarian names, which can be found fairly commonly among Slovaks, can also be either left unchanged (Hungarian Nagy, fem. Nagyová) or respelled according to Czech/Slovak orthography (masc. Naď, fem. Naďová).

Where's Lawrie? She's never in the huddle after each inning. Neither is Salling.

Both of them are currently in Florida playing for the Pride.  I believe that both of them will be in Canada on Tuesday.

Yes. Apparently would earn me a Kovac surname.

I watched today on that Canadian network available with one camera.  It is better than nothing, but less than mediocre.  Shame on you ESPN. Your priorities are really screwed up. I do hope that all real Fastpitch fans write to ESPN to show our contempt for their program choices that eliminate The World Tournament of fastpitch. I hope that doesn't upset the ten people who are watching what they are broadcasting instead.         Frank

Bill - Thanks to Google I now know that Kovac is a "forger" in the sense of one who tends a forge, thus a blacksmith or "Smithy" (your name is an occupation).  My name (Bolton)  is a city in England (place name). Loosely translated from Scandinavian (early invaders) it means a few houses on a round hill.   Interesting stuff during a lull in softball posting.  And then there is Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.      Frank

Frank,

Just follow the live feeds.  That's what I've been doing.  You can see all the games, not just the USA games via the feed.  Go here to see the live games AND you can replay previous games.

I notice that canada (the host country) plays the 6:30 or 7:00 pm game for all of their 7 games during section play. Either USA, japan or china plays in the other slot. So each day ends with canada playing on one field and the usa, japan or china playing on the other field.

Canada and USA never play at the same time......therefore since the 6:30 and 7 pm games are at same time canada does not play night slot on tuesday while USA is playing the featured game against china (canada does the other 6 night slots).

On wednesday the featured game is canada vs Australia so usa is not playing at same time but japan is.

North america softball fans can attend all canada and usa games. And since they are in different sections you can cheer for both to do well and make playoffs.

No, I was only able to catch about 15 minutes of the game and it just so happened that Fischer was up.
