Besides, my son is looking a little peaked and another week in the sun will do him a world of good.

So, can I stay?
Boss: "Sure, Vis, you can stay there as long as you like. And by the way, you're fired!"

Vis: "Oh, thanks so much, boss!"

So why aren't the Isles proceeding in this common-sense way?

The Slovak term is slovanista, plural slovanisti.
