zzz Other zzz translation:Try asking the German/Dutch
Explanation:
team this question. This word is definitely German/Dutch. German words were quite popular in Slovakia/Czech Republic because there was a strong germanization there in the past. German words are still used in these countries, especially among the old generation and they are a part of various dialects now (people often don't know that their dialect term is of the German origin).
