"Vremie" is Old Polish, I seem to recall.

Which other words from Old Polish can you recall?

None right off the top of my head, but Mickiewicz is chocked full of arcane forms:-)

In my opinion the largest disadvantages of Slavic languages:
1) Many words are long and sometimes difficult to pronounce.
2) A lot of consonants.
3) A lot of "r", "sh", "sch".
I would say they sound more melodic than majority of Germanic languages, but less melodic than Romance languages. Do you think a reform is needed?

Hey, I know such a word! Ekstraordynaryjny - 7 syllables.

2) A lot of consonants.

Yes, gżegżółka.

3) A lot of "r", "sh", "sch".

Yes, my business partner 20 years ago was called Szaszkiewicz.

Do you think a reform is needed?

Yes, but let it be natural, not forced.

There's a lot more discrepancy between pronouncing and spelling in French or English and both of them have been surviving in very good shape.

yes, and they both have long words, too. E.g., I remember one - extraordinaire - 5 syllables. Extraordinary - 6 syllables.
