This is a diminutive suffix that you can use as a term of endearment and. It’s often attached to the end of a name.

Láska (lah-ska) / Love

As we already said, Láska is the Slovak word for love. So, the endearing term moja láska, or “my love,” is also frequently said in Slovakia. This word is used in many song lyrics, from Slovak pop songs to traditional folk choruses.

Slovak parents often call their children miláčik. Also, people often call each other miláčik… husband to wife in most cases.

Love Words And Phrases In Slovak Summary

There are two ways to say this in Slovak that have a slight intensity difference in meaning. I am a native Slovak speaker so that I can discern them quite well, but it might be difficult for a foreigner that doesn’t have these distinctions in their language. One that comes to mind that has it is Spanish, with the te quiero/te amo distinction. The Slovak one is pretty much equivalent to this. You could say “Ľúbim ťa” as an equivalent to “te quiero” in Spanish, or a less intense, not so lasting perhaps, feeling, and “Milujem ťa” to signify something like “te amo,” an expression which implies strong, lasting, committed love. Hope that helped.
