Robert listens on WFCR and heard an uncommon but familiar word on our show. He wrote to Tony Kahn to share.
In a bluffing round on Says You! some two years ago (or perhaps more) you had the correct definition of verbunkos as a dance used in military recruiting, which you and your colleagues thought was a very funny idea (dancing your way into the army). The word (and genre) is Hungarian, but also known in Slovakia. In my study of Slavic linguistics I acquired some competence in the Slovak language and Slovak folklore.
Listen below to hear how Tony picked the rose among thorns.
