"Do you want chicken?"

Translation:Ты хочешь курицу?

December 2, 2015



Пажалуйста, the difference between хочешь and хочет?

April 16, 2017


Хочешь is informal for "you" (do you want. ..) while хочет is 3rd person (he wants. .. does he want. ..).

They come from the same verb:[EDIT: Хотеть].

Я хочу Ты хочешь Он хочет Мы хотим Вы хотите Они хотят

Hope that helps.

Could you use partitive here, like, "Do you want some of the chicken" - "Ты хочешь курицы"?

August 23, 2016


It would be "немножко курицы"

March 17, 2019


Good question. I suppose so, but I'll wait for a native to answer it.

No,you couldn't. It's wrong. Notice the end of the word: "курицУ" but not "курицЫ" in this situation.

Is куричу a chicken or just a hen?

December 2, 2015


Chicken as meat is курица or курятина. A hen is only курица.

Would "Хочешь ты курицу" also be acceptable? I know in German, you have to flip the subject & verb when making a question, but idk if there is a rule in Russian for this. Спасибо! :)

February 25, 2019


No, you don't flip them in Russian. Change only intonation for questions.

February 25, 2019


Вы хочете курицу… should be accepted…

since I have no cyrillc letters on my keybord i write : ty hocheshb kuritsu but it always gives me error and the wrong word is hocheshb . how should I write it?

April 26, 2019


Is ты necessary here? The subject seems to get dropped in many sentences and is fully implied in this case by хочешь. If it is, is there some rule of thumb for when the subject is necessary and when it is not?

June 25, 2019


Yes, in this case you can drop "ты". In such "propositional" questions you usually can omit it. There are a few other cases where you can like "пусть + инфинитив". But generally you need a subject even if it's implied by the verb's form.
