I've had friends in Russia just say the first word (I'm guessing a variant) to me when they see me. How do I translate that?
so when do you use -ый and ой like in молодой and here which is здоровый?
The ending of masculine adjectives in the nominative is -ой when stressed on the final syllable.
«Здоровый» could also mean huge but in this case it doesn’t
"здоровый парень" can be translated as "huge guy", but "здоровый мальчик" is only "healthy boy"
