Strange letters in Russian?!
Hi everyone, I've noticed recently that there are accents on some letters in the Duolingo's Russian alphabet course, for example:- ма́ма велосипе́д Thanks
Imagine it like writing a stressed vowel bold, but less intrusive. Regularly used in books aimed for kids and foreign learners.
Just explaining. I guess you could write them if you felt like it but they aren't in the Russian alphabet. Well a and e are in the Russian alphabet but not á and é
you never write them, they are only for kids and foreign students to learn how to read
Then I can also write whatever answer I wish, not that I should or must, right? :))) I just felt like answering that way even though it didn't make any sense ;)
To follow up on what grey236 just said, notice those accents are only there when they first introduce the word on its own, for learning purposes only.
