When do you use обо, when об and when о?

November 17, 2015


It depends on what letter(s) the word after starts with.

"О" is used when the next word begins with a consonant. For example: о тебе, о маме

"Об" is used when the next word begins with a vowel. For example: об Америке

"Обо" is used when the word after it begins with the following groups of consonants: чт, вс, мн. For example: обо мне

So we can't use что here? Like "кажется, что..."

I think that would translate to "It seems that she talked about me", but that would mean the exactly same thing as the translation above.

Would кажется, она обо мне говорила have the same meaning, but a different context/usage?

Your choice is correct. Report it next time.

Why can't I use the perfective сказала here?
