In my experience, other languages have a short form of that country name, including Czech itself, and it's some kind of accident that we don't. I certainly support saying "Czechia" or "Czech" or "Czecho" (Japanese uses the last one), instead of "the Czech republic", which is taxing on the tongue.

My made-up name? What are you actually on.

Since we're talking about Spanish, RAE: "No hay razones para censurar, en textos de carácter no oficial, el uso de la forma Chequia", and anyway Czechia is used in English despite its rarity, and in other languages it's even the regular normal form. I obviously wasn't saying Czechia is the usual word in English, and I don't know how you came to the conclusion that I was insisting people use Czechia (you have always been excellent at misreading though, so); I do know how to speak English - I was saying it's not incorrect, because it is used and it is actually (czech your facts, see: the UN, the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs, plenty of others) the official English short form of the name and the equivalent of Česko, which is also in use in Czech, despite being controversial.

Czechia isn't incorrect, it's controversial in formal contexts and it's in use colloquially (and more commonly in Spanish than in English).

As for Cymru, if you can't grasp what my reasoning might have been then that's your problem, but maybe it wasn't the best analogy anyway.

Where I live nobody says Chequia, FWIW, I don't think I've heard it more than two times in my life.

For what it's worth, in Dutch, we (almost?) exclusively say Tsjechië. I saw Tsjechische Republiek in writing for the first time the other day, in a book translated from English.

I went for a six mile run and it was lovely but I think my legs might fall off.

I'm satisfied that it's not *incorrect*, uncommon as it be.

Whenever I have a bit of free time when I did not expect to, I go over to the library here at the uni and prowl around the native languages section. Most of the time it is empty to a depressing degree but today I was lucky enough to find a grammar of Diyari! :mrgreen:

Woo, I'm starting spironolactone and getting my estradiol bumped to 2mg a day. Hopefully this does interesting things to my body.

Resuming my Japanese-learning efforts has given me something to actually do, which means I'm less depressed than I have been for the last few months. Also, I can already read about 200 kanji! (because I am a ridiculously all-or-nothing person, so learning Japanese entails flashcard drills for approximately seven hours a day). Also, I got a brush pen on Amazon, and it is making my kanji flashcards look pretty snazzy.
