When learning German language we often realize that German phrases became a part of Slovak language. The author of the study concentrates on the less known influence of Slovak language on Carpathian German dialect which for 600 years developed in constant contact with Slovak and Hungarian languages. Retreat of the German dialect has started already before the 20th century as a result of unfavourable economic situation and immigration. Further historical events speeded this process even more. The article presents the results of a research project called Phraseology of Carpathian Germans. The author describes the influence of Slovak on Carpathian German dialects on the bases of a questionnaire aimed at phraseological units of Carpathian Germans. The author addressed respondents between 64 and 90 years of age who used German as their first mother tongue. The study brings valuable information about the research of contacts between German dialects and Slovak. The author doesn't exclude also the influence of other dialects, such as Ruthenian, Polish and Hungarian.
