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...

Ah I'm not really sure. Perhaps someday? I'm kind of juggling work and uni and I didnt really think anyone would be that interested in these

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^
TarasTompkin Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
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:
