where does Duolingo get these translations/audios because the speaker is sometimes excited about some words and not about all of them.. why not be excited about them all ..and then record them in different emotions.. thatd be interesting .. jealously "radio."
right? the danish woman gets angry when she finds out that men have potatoes. it's funny though, I guess that helps us remember
She sounds as she asks a question. It is not exactly right for a statement. (native russian)
UPD 2017-12-07. Now it sounds well.
Just as there are accents across any other country or continent: deep south United States, New England, into Canada, etc... I'm sure it varies when you leave Moscow. Plus any of the former Soviet countries that held entirely different languages previous to the USSR.
It does distinguish between singular and plural. However радио is an indeclinable noun so the spelling stays the same regardless of number or case.
Thank you for the answer, and the term"indeclinable noun". Looking that up was extremely helpful.
The only selectable answer was "radios" (plural), so i selected it and got it right.
Can I speak Russian properly if I can't roll my R? I've been trying for about a year now and I just can't grasp it.
I do not know how essential it is to roll the "R". But there is a trick independant from the language. Use words of your own language with a "dr" or "br" like draw, drew, brew brown and train it. Than speak or think a little "d" before the rolling "R", that my help you.</pre>
Suddenly became a native russian/spainard/dutch...etc thank u sooooooo much cheers
There are native speakers who can't roll their R's. Lenin, for example, didn't have rolled R. I'd say it's more important to get the difference between "hard" and "soft" (palatalized) consonants.
I can't roll my 'R''s either. They'll still understand you but it's somewhat like having a small speech impendement. At least according to my Russian S/O and my inlaws. They find my inability to roll my Rs hilarious...:( I just accept the English accent which I shall always have!
You can also develop the muscles for it this way: put a small candy on your tongue near the tip, then fold your tongue over it (you can use your teeth or other parts of your mouth to help if necessary).
Play with the candy like that, folding your tongue over it, until your tongue starts to feel a little warm.
It sounds weird but I do it sometimes (a teacher suggested it to the class once) and it does help. It's like a mini workout for your tongue.
Аналогично. Мне он не принял сказанное чётко ра-ди-О. А разве кто-то говорит «радиа»? Да, безударная «о» звучит как «а», но не во всех словах. «Поэт» нормально говорить через [o], так и «радио» тоже.
WHO pronounces it like [радиА]or [радя]? Yes, "o" is unstressed, but we say [радио]
She pronounces radio wrong. It is a loan word and i have heard native Russians say it with a long "o."
For some reason on my phone I heard radia. Since radio was all we were taught i got it correct. Really sounds like радие though.
If it wasn't for Duo saying the word, I would have put it Cyrillic when it was asking for an English translation.
I didn't pay attention to what she said, I saw "radio" and entered "радио" and it said I was wrong. Which is doubly weird, because, why can the questions be in either alphabet but the answer can't? Also, why use the wrong alphabet in the "Alphabet" lesson? I had to on my phone, but forgot to switch it back to cyrillic today.
Why radio is written as радио? Why not родио? As we've learnt unstressed o and a in a syllable is pronounced as a/ah!!!
I was wondering the same thing. To me, the О in Радио sounds like the stressed "Oh" here, even though the А is definitely the stressed vowel. Could it be because radio is an imported Word like Такси which is irregular in several ways, or is the TTS just pronouncing it weird?
Just started the Russian tree, but when I was first introduced to "радио" earlier in this lesson it was spelled with an accent (I believe over the letter "а"). However, here it is not. What are the rules for using accents in Russian writing?
Accents are generally used in material for learners to indicate which vowel is stressed. Otherwise, accents are not used in Russian writing.
Is the sound at the beginning of the word "radio" a "g" sound or is it just rolling the "r"?
How do we write these answers???? I've had english responses lately but am not sure about the future ones...
I changed my keyboard's language so that i write in russian, but how do i put the intonation marks on the words?
Радё doesn't exist in Russian, so we can't pronounce that "ио" in the end of it like ё. It's ра-ди-о (3 syllables).
Translate this text: "radio". ia am translate - радио. true answer - radios. What??? How to distinguish a word in Russian from a word in English, if they are written in English letters?
НЕ правильное произношение!!! Я и моя так же русскоязычная сестра не узнали слова!!! Incorrect pronunciation!
hi. I am having trouble writing the Russian words from English, as I don't have the correct keyboard. does anyone know how to help please?
She means cheeki breeki hard bass!! Let's grab some semechki and raz raz raz eto hard bass
