"Да , доброе утро."

Translation:Yes, good morning.

November 4, 2015




Why Да here is "Yup" and not "Yes"? Also, are there different ways to say "yes" in Russian, just like there are "yeah", "yep", etc. in English?

November 4, 2015


There is only one way to say yes - that would be да

November 19, 2018


And why should one say 'Да, доброе утро'? Is this a normal way of saying good morning?

August 30, 2019


Because Russian has multiple things in one sentence

What is the "yes" or "yup" doing here? Isn't this a very strange sentence?

November 5, 2015


I am confused about this too. Is it sort of like saying "Good morning to you too"?

December 30, 2015


Agree. There is repetition, or redundancy. But this 'greeting' is in several other Duo languages too. Sometimes as a farewell, as Thanks, good morning. I do not say that either!

March 17, 2019


I think it is a perfecly normal duo sentence :) And yes, good morning!

So in these sentences is the ending of добр- changing to agree with the gender of morning/afternoon/night etc?

November 4, 2015


Yes, it is. утро is neuter, день and вечер are both masculine. The feminine version of добрый is добрая.

November 5, 2015


Is добрый the 'regular' version? E.g. If I simply wanted to say "Good.", I'd have to say "добрый", and not any other version of the word?

добрый и хороший --these are two different words, but they are very similar in meaning . You can wish Good day and you can say about a human that he is a good (хороший) person- it's mean that he is good in general, but you can say that he is a kind ( good-добрый) person -it's mean he is not angry man . For example-- When I'm not hungry I'm a kind person --- Когда я не голоден я ДОБРЫЙ. In Russian Доброе утро, Добрый день, Добрый вечер, Доброго времени суток, Доброй ночи ---it's as a greeting but more formally, it's established expression. Добрый we use in established expressions and quality to humans and animals. Хороший we use as to everyone as to everything--- Хороший человек. Хороший день. Хороший стул. Ты сделал свою работу хорошо. And "хорошо" you can say as agree ( Купи молоко!--Хорошо. (Ок) or action approval Sorry for my English I started to study it not long ago)

I believe one would use "хорошо" for "good" in that manner, though I am not a native speaker. My Russian teacher would use "хорошо" as a compliment when we did something well. добрый I think translates more directly as "kind" or "nice". Other than these greetings, it is used to describe people ("He's a good/nice guy"). Maybe a native speaker on here can help clarify?

Russian dictionaries present adjectives in their masculine form, so you would see "добрый" listed in bold.

Thanks :)

In my experience, "Добрый" is a common response to "Добрый день" or "Добрый вечер".

I used to greet my young children in the morning with "Добрая утка!"

Great, many thanks for the explanation - I guess I'm going to learn about this in a few lessons.

Menya are from Russa? can you teach me also to how speek in Russa

February 5, 2019


I would like to know as well!

November 5, 2015


Why is it «добрый день» but «доброе утро»?

[edit] Ah, it has to do with the gender of the noun... :D

July 23, 2017


хорошо sounds like horror show.

March 28, 2018


How can I phonetically tell the difference between Доброе and Добрый?

January 14, 2019


Can I just say доброе ночи for good night the way its used for good morning (доброе утро) instead of saying спокоинои ночи?

February 18, 2019


Yes, you can say "доброй ночи" (just not "доброе ночи", "доброе" is neutral and "ночь" is feminine).

June 5, 2019


Why not добрая ночь? Apparently Доброе утро and добрый день are both nominatives or accusatives, but спокойной ночх seems to be a genitive. Why the different case ?

August 30, 2019


Is a "yes" necessary before a "good morning"?

January 8, 2019


Not at all

July 12, 2019


Wtf i just learned how to spell добрый and now it changes the spelling?

January 20, 2019


This one just doesn't work for me

July 6, 2019


i typed "да, доброе утро" and still rejected, the correct answer have no difference from what i typed this must be a bug

Imagine it being said by the Swedish Chef, and it makes more sense.

Русский: "Доброе утро, друг!" Sweed speaking bad Russian: Утро да, доброе утро!
