  • In modern colloquial Slovene, this means "beer" (< G. Bier). Curiously, there co-exists an authentically Slavic word pir, which means "feast, banquet" (the verb is pirovati), but this word has generally been replaced by the word gostija (from the word gost, "guest"), probably to avoid any confusion between drunken student revelry and white-tie dining.
