FACTS ABOUT THE CZECH LANGUAGE
The Czech language is a West Slavic language.
More than 10 million people speak Czech. The language is widely spoken in the Czech Republic and in the Slovak Republic. You can find Czech speakers in Austria, Croatia, Germany, Bulgaria, Canada, the USA, and other countries.
The Old Czech language is considered as a basis for Modern Czech. However, a more important stage for the Czech language is the middle of the 18th century when Czech academics promoted the Czech language. This stage is also called the revival of the Czech language.
The Czech language has a large flexion (word categories and syntactic relations are expressed by endings). Nouns and adjectives are conjugated depending on the case, number, gender, and consonant at the end of a word. Verbs are also conjugated depending on the tense, number, and gender. The word order in a sentence is very flexible. The alphabet contains 42 letters. Czechs use a modified version of the Latin alphabet.
The Czech language has a unique grapheme ř.
The absence of vowels
The Czech language contains many words, which do not have vowels. It really complicates the pronunciation of words.

Nejneznepravděpodobnostňovávatelnějšího (the one whose likelihood is the most doubtful thing).
There can be distinguished 4 or 5 Czech dialects.
First records in Czech
The first records in Czech are considered the records of Latin language manuscripts in the 10th century.
The impact of other languages
