Kokioj šalyje?

I am slightly unsure of this - it was used after

"O kur tu gyveni?" - which I know means "And where do you live"

Does it mean something like, is it near somewhere nice as "šalia" means "near to" and I think "Kokybė" means quality

So just trying to combine the two phrases hoping this is right

Ačiū tautinė

Emm, where? what phrases?

"šalia" means "beside" and yes, "kokybė" [koks?] is quality ("kiekybė" [kiek?] means quantity) ;)

And what does it mean "Ačiū tautinė"?

"Ačiū tautinė"?

It was meant to mean "Thank you people" - maybe it should have been tautą or something similar

Tautinis/tautinė means "national" (m/f) ;) We don't really use such expression like "Thank you people" ("Žmonės/liaudie, ačiū!"), unless some leader wants to thank people for support or something. Just use "ačiū" or "ačiū už pagalbą" [thanks for help] etc.

Cheers for that - That is the problem with languages certain customs don't translate :)

Kokioj šaly is In which country?
Kokioj is the contracted form of the word 'Kokioje' which is the female 'In Which'.
Šaly is 'in country', it comes from the word šalis which is country (feminine).

In English you don't say 'in which in country' but in lithuanian you do (considering that in is replaced by a different ending of the word).


BTW: It can also be said as 'kokioj šaly' as 'šalyje' can sometimes be informally contracted to 'šaly'.
BTW2: no lithuanian nominative nouns end with ą.
