A famous movie line...
And a old video game too! (Sanitarium 1998)
Without the question mark is it "Where I am"?
Also in john carter said " where am i?"
That doesn't make sense in English.
I've never seen that many downvotes elsewhere in Russian comments.
How is this pronounced?
technically, when broken down, its supposed to be 'g-d-ye ya'
but in Russia the soft vowels 'ya (я), ye (е)' -if preceded by a consonant- drops the 'y'. SO
' g-d-e ya '
Is it just me or is this difficult to hear?
Why not "Where I am?"
"Where am I?" is the correct form of asking the question rather than "Where I am?"
So... Romanization for Где would be something like Gde??
this is a good sentence to know once I got lost in Sasebo, Japan. I speak English
Funny intonation on the record. Где <<Я>>? Like the main question is not "where", but more importantly "am I"
"So, mom, Tim and Tom are all together, and Tom is a medic, so they should be OK. Now, where am I? Is this the subway? Maybe I can still find my backpack."
And fix the motor of the taxi to go to your home
Just try not to mistake it for your dad's motor!
yes, the word GDE should be stressed, not YA
...I ask myself that question every day
why is я pronounced "ye" and not "ya"?
I hear the я pronounced that way, too, AshontiCoh. Guess nobody knows why it sounds like "ye" as no one has answered your question.
I can confirm, living with Russian-speaking relatives. It seems to vary slightly, but my
actual Russian-born relatives also pronounce it as "ya" or the German "Ja." Personally, I have never heard it said as "ye."
The recordings are worthless to try to ubderstand how to say anything.
I ask myself that everyday..
Sounds like Polish
Yes ! My parents understand some words in russian because they speak polish !
Where am I
U should use google maps i think!
Needs better pronunciation sound of the first word. Uts too fast.
Why not Where I am
Because that wouldn't be proper English. In English word order changes with a question. In Russian that doesn't happen.
Not all who wander are lost, but I sure am.
Isn't it more like "Gdye ya?" rather than "Gde ya?"? (i already know the cyrillic alphabet, this romanization of it just doesn't seem right, correct me if i'm wrong.)
i cant understand this sentence where am i wtf
I wrote where amni by accident, it said it's right, sorry but it should say that I accidentally added a letter
But i correctly said it either..
This exercise should have a slow pronunciation option like the translation exercise does.
How it pronounced?? Sounds like Я is pronounced before Где not after it.
Could "Where em I?"work? It marked me wrong for using "Em" rather than "am"
After you had much to drink last night....
"Где я?" = "Где я нахожусь?"
Where am I
Said your family member when you forgot the lesson
very normal, definitely not concerned i need to know this.
The intonation seems odd; one wouldn't expect a rising intonation at the end of a question that begins with an interrogative word.
Ooh get you mr big words
WHERE YOU YOU WHERE YOU WHERE
