Russian 101: Resisting Torture, Part 1
Muzhik, don't make us resort to vodka-boarding...
:said in thick russian accent:
Love the Russian double negative
Try to parse this:
Никто ничего ни о ком не знает.
Is it "no one knows anything about anyone"?
We have a winner!
Forget it - I already gave up after the first three words
Pretty much every language other than English uses double negatives!
Nope. Most Germanic and Scandinavian languages don't use double negative. But it's very common in romance and slavic languages. I don't know about Asian and African languages though... Would be interesting to find out what is the most common
This and "Не твоё дело!" are going to become SO useful when I get caught up with the Russian mob!
what a perfect sentence to use if ever im taken hostage
"Я знаю, что ничего не знаю." - Сократ
Does that mean, "I know, what I don't know"?
"I know, that I know nothing." Not sure about proper translation.
me, at any given moment of any day
This is how I feel trying to learn Russian.
So Schultz speaks Russian now? He must have been sent to the Russian front as he always feared.
Сказал Джон Снол.
Is ничего an accusative form? I thought that inanimate object like "nothing" would copy the nominative... Or is that an exception?
Ты ничего незнает Джон Снив.
Can this also be "I know nothing"?
