How would you say: "Will anyone remember me?"


«Меня кто-нибудь будет помнить?»


Hmm, I believe in Polish we have two verbs that can be translated as "remember": "pamiętać" and "wspominać". We use "pamiętać" when we talk about something we know from the past: "Pamiętam, co mi powiedziała" - "I remember what she said to me". "Wspominać" is like sitting in a couch with a cup of coffee and thinking about the past / looking back: "Wspominam stare dobre czasy" - "I remember good old days". Which verb refers to помнить? And does Меня кто-нибудь будет помнить? mean:
1.) Ktokolwiek mnie wspomni? (short action; even one thought or word about something)
2.) Ktokolwiek będzie mnie pamiętał? (long action; having something in memory)
I hope it's clear and thanks in advance!


It's the same exact meaning in Russian as Polish, помнить and вспоминать.

1.) Кто-нибудь меня вспомнит?

2.) Кто-нибудь будет меня помнить?


Kto niby mnie wspomni? Kto niby będzie mnie pamiętał? Atleast from my experience Polish shares more similarities with Russian than with Czech or Slovakian. Quite a nice surprise.


Thanks for the answer!

Just to clarify for the English-speaking folks: помнить would be 'remember', while вспоминать would be more in line with 'reminisce'.

Again, as with my past comment, just as in Spanish, "Alguien me recuerda?" The Russian syntax is so strangely close to us Spanish/Romance speakers :)


But somebidy remember (without s) me is not correct


"does remember" is correct. Does anyone remember me?

"anyone remembers" is correct without the word "does/do"


Yes but the correction was " somebody remember me" without does and without an s which is quite different ,more like пусть кто нибудь вспомнит обо мне


My Duolingo shows "Does anyone remember me?"

You are correct that "somebody rememberS me" would be the proper way, but I don't see that version on my Duolingo.
