  5. "Good morning, Anna."

"Good morning, Anna."

Translation:Доброе утро, Анна.

November 5, 2015



What is the difference between "Доброе утро" and "Добрый утро"? Thank you!


Утро is neuter, you can't change it. So you have to use доброе with it, because добрый can be used only with other masculine words like день or вечер.

So: "Добрый утро" doesn't exist.


The first version is correct, and in the second version the adjective (добрый) does not agree with the gender of the noun (утро, neuter).


FYI: In Russian, you can use a short answer:

  • Доброе утро!
  • Доброе!

This reminds me of the English pattern of "Good morning! - Morning!", but sort of the other way around. Note that you shorten only the answer, not the initial greeting.


So the russians just grewt with "Good!" Or have i misread you?


How does the pronunciation differ between добрый and доброе? I'm having a hard time saying доброе.


Why it is so complicated. Althoug you people are giving your best efforts to make us know language easily. But still,some more clarrification should given for using of various leter and gender of noun in russian way

    It's not complicated, you just need to remember of gender of question, when you ask or tell. Any phrase you can check by a gender question. For example: "Зимний лес". Male gender, and control question is "КАКОЙ лес?". Last letters in КАКОЙ shows you that you need to use "Зимний" and not "Зимняя" (КАКАЯ) or "Зимнее" (КАКОЕ). I hope it helps you.


    It is never said anywhere that those words have genders... I don't really get it


    Yeah, seriouly, there's no info or anything


    How do i know if a word is masculine, neuter...


    Masculine ends in constanants, femenine with usually а or я and neuter is о or е. That is the general rule, there are exceptions as the soft sound (ь) can be any gender.


    Привет it is hay


    You mean "Hey!", not "hay".


    Yes. As we say in the United States: "Hay is for horses!".


    Why can't I use хорошо or some form of it, instead of доброе? TIA :)

      Доброе/добрыи. When does the end change in the sentence?


      Is the name "Anna" (Анна) really as common in Russia as Duolingo makes it appear?


      Yes ! My mother is a russian native and is herself called Anna. And she has at least 5 other friends called Anna, which is why there are so many variations used of a given name: Анна, Анюта, Анька... I don't if it still works like this, but in her time when someone was born you had to pick a name from a register of already existing names, which explains why so many people have the same one


      Can someone explain where is добрыи and where is доброе used?


      Добрый for masculine and доброе for neutral names


      Where do I get a Russian key board??


      If you have google keyboard then hold this key "," and you will enter into keyboard settings from there you can download Russian keyboard.


      I would love more lessons on the alphabet, since it is a completely different one from others. Thanks!


      How do I use russian Keyboard ? within duolingo course


      If you have google keyboard then hold this key "," and you will enter into keyboard settings from there you can download Russian keyboard.

      When there is an audio to write it be useful if you didn't use Anna because it sounds the same as она


      somehow my answer doesn't get accepted even when i'm copying the exact solution given


      Is it ok to spell "Anna" like "Аня" instead of "Анна"? This is how we typically pronounce it in Russian.


      Okay so, I am typing in Russian on my English QWERTY keyboard, "Good morning, Anna." But it comes out as, "Пщщв ьщктштп Фттф", what gives?


      Erm, is it weird that one of the choices for me translated to "Good morning, Sushi?"
