Slovak term or phrase: syczlak
I am not sure. It is the last name of Moe the Bartender on "The Simpsons" and I am in the middle of a trivia contest and this is one of the questions: taken phonetically, what would Moe's last name mean in most Slovak languages.

your word syczlak does not mean anything in Slovak Language but spelling "syczak" phonetically in the Czech Language means someone who has sort of a devilish mind, doing bad things to people. I hope this helps. If not please let me know.

there are two huge problems - first, "syczlak" does not mean anything. Second, there are no "Slovak" languages; there is only THE one Slovak language. There are, indeed, various SLAVIC languages...
