Czech, Not The Czech

Connie Patty has been with Josiah Venture as long as it has been around because together with her husband and another couple or two they started the organisation many years ago.  

Today I'm going to recommend her blog to you as she recently published a post to explain why people shouldn't say "The Czech" or "The Ukraine" - both are incorrect for different reasons, it's simply Czech and Ukraine, although when saying talking about the Czech Republic the "the" is fine.  

So I can say 
- I live in Czech  
- I live in the Czech Republic

Want to know the explanation behind the above?  You can check it out on Connie's blog here.
