Slovenian language also uses the dual case
Did you know?
Foreigners (and even some Slovenes) stumble with the use of the dual case. It’s a specialty of the Slovenian language, in that there is not only singular and plural but dual. Thus, “the two towers” in English is simply “Stolpa” in Slovene. It can be found in some other European languages, like Scottish Gaelic, Sorbian and Frisian – however all three of those languages have 100,000 speakers. The dual also appears in some cases in Arabic. In other Slavic languages, it has passed away, although some traces remain.
