How would the pronunciation differ between "пьёт" and "пьют"? I'm having trouble distinguishing the sounds of the letters. Could just be an app issue.
One sounds likе "p-yo-t", the other is more like "p-yu-t".
I'll hitch them to the wagon soon. Let's hope they don't get arrested this time :)
We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces
singing "Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses."
i dont know where this is from or if it is from anywhere but take my lingot anyway!
Your horses are outlaws?
No, but they have a tendency to drink and drive :)
That is a terrible joke. XD I'll have to remember it.
Is a лошадь a horse of either gender? Or does it mean a mare, and конь a stallion?
Mare = кобыла
Stallion = жеребец
Gelding = мерин
Thank you. So what is a конь then?
A steed, else a generic word for horse.
Russian Wiktionary gives "лошадь, обычно самец." Also, the chess piece or the pommel horse in gymnastics.
When we use, пить, пьёт, пьют?
Just have to study conjugation charts for verbs. In your question, пить is the infinitive (to drink), пьёт is for third person singular subject (he/she/it), пьют is for third person plural subject (they).
How do you pronounce "лошади"? To me, the "л" in that words sounds like it is between an "l" and a "v"
In this case pronounce it L. Audio quality makes some words here come out slightly weird.
Ee. The и is ee.
How do you make a difference between saying My horses are drinking AND My horses drink? Present tense vs continuous tense? Can someone clarify this one for me
You don't, in Russian they both translate as this sentence. If you want to make a distinction, you have to add more words/phrases to specify.
What's wrong with "My horses drink."?
Nothing is wrong. It's accepted.
Is there a russian continuous present. If not what is the difference between my horses drink (wrong) and my horses are drinking (correct)??
how would the sentence differ if it were "my horses drink" instead of "my horses are drinking"?
пьёт or пьют?
Definitely пьют. Considering пьёт is singular and we are talking about more than one horse, you will want the 3rd person plural version, which is пьют.
Could this also be translated "my horses drink" instead of "are drinking?"
On repeated listening, even knowing what the word is, I only hear пью, and not пьют.
Don't drink and ride
What makes пьют "drinking" and not "drink"?
Both are possible, both are accepted.
