Adding Links in Drupal with the l() Function

In Drupal you should know that you never want to hardcode a local URL into your nodes or blocks. Firstly as your site expands the node may show from places you do not currently imagine thus breaking your paths. Secondly if you try to bypass this by using a full/direct URL, you are going to be up shit creek without a paddle when you migrate the URL. The link l() function should be used for adding links so that manipulations, like localization and URL determinations, can happen on the output.

Czech Lesson 2.4 - Location Words and Genders

For this session I am going to list a number of locations and the gender of the word. When using the locative case, the gender of the location must be determined to proper declenate the location properly. Please see the Locative Case Quick Guide for more information on how to properly declenate these location words by gender.

  • škola : school (Feminine)
  • divadlo : theater (Neutral)
  • pošta : post office (Feminine)
  • moře : sea (Neutral)

Czech Lesson 2.2 - Locative Case Continued

Today's lesson continues with the locative case. I am simply going to expand upon the previous post filling out more of the list of locative example sentances with the neutral and masculine gender.

The Czech language uses the locative case to denote location (for eample: v České Republice/in the Czech Republic) and may also be used after certain prepositions with meanings other than location (for eample: o Praze/about Prague, po revoluci/after the revolution).

Czech Lesson 2.1 - Locative Case

The Czech language uses the locative case to denote location (for eample: v České Republice/in the Czech Republic) and may also be used after certain prepositions with meanings other than location (for eample: o Praze/about Prague, po revoluci/after the revolution).

For my examples I will use 'v/ve' and 'na', which translate roughly as 'in' and 'on'.

More Czech Flash Cards

It has been awhile since I have put any posts here, due to the fact that it doesn't make me any money. That's right, I have been busy with work and learning Czech. To go with the topic of learning Czech, I have just posted another 50 flash cards to test yourself with.

This set includes more numbers, the days of the weeks, and a smattering of verbs and food item. I have created four views on these cards for you to begin your learning adventure with, please see:

Flash Cards for Learning Czech

I am in the process of learning the Czech language. To help myself along, I decided to make some flash cards to drill myself with. Being the geek that I am, I decided that I should create the cards digitally. Now I want to share my results with the rest of the Czech-learning world.
