Im just learning too, but i heard that моя is feminine and мой is masculine. Or maybe i have it backwards. Its kind of a foreign concept for english speakers since we dont use anything like it, but if you know any spanish or french, etc, you'll know what im talking about
If you know any Spanish, French etc, you'll know what I'm talking about
Or if you know any German, Swedish, Polish or any other Germanic or Slavic languages, since most Romance languages don't have a neuter gender anymore.
Russian - Polish / German / French
мой - mój / mein / mon
моя - moja / meine / ma
мои - moje / meine / mes
мое - mо́j / mein / ‽‽‽
There are some guidelines here :
the gender of a noun is denoted by what letters are on the end of the word:<pre>
Masculine nouns end in a consonant: б, в, г, д, ж, з, й к, л, м, н, п, р, с, т, ф, х, ч, ц, ш, or щ. Notice that й is a consonant. For example, кролик (KRO-leek, 'rabbit') ends in a consonant, -к, so it is a masculine word. Feminine nouns end in а or я. For example, собака (so-BA-ka, 'dog') ends in an -a, so it is a feminine word. Neuter nouns end in о or е. For example, письмо (pees-MO, 'letter') ends in an -o, so it is grammatically neuter. Nouns ending in -ь can be either masculine or feminine. These just have to be memorised.</pre>
Methinks it's a calque from Italian doubled zz. In Italian solo z is Z,double zz is ts. Tozzi, Ramazzotti. To pronounce пицца, one ц is enough, that's true. But we wouldn't change language rules on your solo demand))), you need at least establish a party whatsoever.. Пица, Пица! Révolution !)) So stick to пицца and enjoy it.
I don't get the question :) These are English constructions and I suppose there is some difference between them :) And of course the translations will differ, too :)
- This is a pizza. - Это пицца.
- There is a pizza. - Есть пицца. (here "есть" if a form of the verb "быть" (to be) )
