Term:
Can't find "omží" in dictionary  
by bezkydbard (US), 2012-05-24, 03:42  like dislike  Spam?  
I've recently begun a translation project, and am stuck on one word in particular omží which I cannot find in any online dictionaries. I've tried Google translate, too, without luck. The text is Petr Bezruč's poem, Hanácká ves, and it is possible it is an obsolete term.

Any suggestions?

Can you write a whole sentence? Perhaps it'll be a fog.

I don't know how it say in English. Like when you breathe on the glass and it will dim.
(misty...cloudy...)

Hmmm.  #657695

Ok - I think your first idea of "fog" is right, especially with the sense of breath. In English, the phrase is that "the glass is foggy/cloudy/misty" (or "frosted" if it is cold) when you breathe on it. Seems like a more modern word might be something like "zamlžený" (misted/misty or foggy). Díky moc!
Answer:
sotva vánek lehkým dechem zamlží  #657703

Takto to zní moderněji.
A není zač. Rádo se stalo.
