I try to pick up little things (mostly hockey related) in many "hockey languages" (Russian, Swedish, Finnish, etc.) so I can better understand things that are being said about a player. But my fundamental understanding of these languages is largely non-existant, to be honest, but rather accumulated from trying to piece together other hockey related things. In short, more in the direction of intermediate Google Translate user, with a small understanding of how things translate to solve compound word issues (like our mystery word above) or context issues...

As MadArcand accurately notes, I am Hungarian. But still, I claim general ignorance on all languages.
