You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation. Croatia Week has launched its ‘Word / Phrase of the Day’, where we will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.
The phrase “Da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti” is commonly used to describe a person who ceases to amaze, a real character, and literally translates as ‘if he didn’t exist you would have to invent him’.
Examples: – Seinfeld and George might be talking about Kramer and say da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti.
- Charlie Sheen..da ga nema trebalo bi ga izmisliti.
- 14/01/2014 – nit’ smrdi, nit’ mirise
