So yeah. More basic stuff. As usual, I hope you find it helpful. :3 If any other Russian speakers out there spot any errors, please feel free to inform me so I can make the necessary corrections.

Are the pronouns different when they are used as the subject and object of the sentence? Like the difference between "I" and "me" or "she" and "her"?

I hope you make more! These are really helpful and awesome!

Hello, I know this is a two-year-old comment, but I felt like it might be helpful for others to see as well. Yes, in Russian, there are 6 cases for all nouns including pronouns. "Я" may be "меня" in the accusative and genitive or "мне" in the dative and prepositional for example. Cases simply refer to the "job" the noun/pronoun fulfills in the sentence. The nominative deals with the subject of the sentence, and the other five cases deal with all potential object types.

I believe that the closest English equivalent to "ты" would be "thou" but I'm not sure...

This is extremely helpful! So, since non-Slavic names don't translate very well, how would you say a non-Slavic name? Such as, perhaps, Logan?

Oh~ Is your OTP RussiaxLithuania? ^3^

Non-Slavic names tend to be translated phonetically in the way that is most appropriate for the language. Many traditional "Slavic" names, for instance, were once originally Greek, and also tweaked for pronunciation.

And yes, RusLit is one of my OTP's. c:

Do Russians make diminutives of non-russian names?
Reply
:icontarastompkin:
TarasTompkin Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2011
I suppose you could, but they would be more like nicknames than true diminutives, since non-Slavic names don't translate very well.

The whole diminutive thing, while trying to read Russian literature, is quite nightmarish. I can't help to remember a book from Sabato in where a character said she never could end any Russian novel: "when you are started to get oriented with a man being called Alexandre, then it results that his name is Sacha and then Sachka and then Sackenka, and suddenly something big like Alexandre Alexandrovitch Bunine and then is simply Alexandre Alexandrovitch (...) It's a never ending thing: every character seems like a whole family" :XD:. Russian is complicated _.

BTW, are you Russian?

It is confusing, isn't it? XD It took my years to actually learn the names of some of my relatives because I was so used to calling them by diminutives which didn't sound at all like their given names.

I'm Ukrainian, actually, but I come the heavily Russified east, so my first language happened to be Russian. :'D

Oh, I see. Well, Slavic languages might seem complicated (for us Westerners at least) but they surely sound beautiful :heart:

Languages in general are beautiful~ =u= Im mildly obsessed with Persian and Spanish at the moment.

I agree! Languages are beautiful and fun to learn fun ^^. I'm learning Japanese and trying to improve some of my English.

You are learning Spanish? Cool! (native Spanish speaker here). You'll not have problems with the pronunciation, I can assure you. For some reason, Russian learners can sound almost like natives very quickly. It must be those rolled 'rr' =D (rolled r's rules X3).

:D Language love is awesome stuff. <3 I'm currently trying to learn Farsi on top of my Spanish... But I think the best part is picking apart words you already know and learning about where they come from and what their literal meaning can tell you about the culture from where the language originated... (//nerdrant)

Anyway, thank you for the comment. I'm glad you found this helpful.
