"my boyfriend"

Translation:мой парень

December 17, 2015



At school we have learned that boyfriend and male friend both translate to друг. Is that wrong?

On my Russian grammar book, it says that "boyfriend" is " Молодой человек". Is there some difference between this and "парень"?

Its kinda interesting that the word for boyfriend almost sounds like "parent" in English.

what's the difference between моя and мой

December 24, 2015


Моя = my (feminine), мой = my (masculine) in the first person nominative case. There is a nice chart on http://www.russianlessons.net/grammar/pronouns.php

I'm still very newborn in russian language, but as I understand so far the difference is the "gender" of things. Моя stands for my femenine things [e.g. моя машина] and мой for masculine things [e.g. мой папа]. I hope I nailed the correct answer and thus it can help you or someone else.

how to know when to add "b" to end of word in Russian?

It's not really a case of 'adding' it, it's part of the spelling. Occasionally in some cases (genitive plural comes to mind) you might replace a vowel with a soft sign, but otherwise it's just part of the word. In English, we have lots of letters that seem extraneous; in Russian it does at least have a function! ;) It softens/palatalises the consonant it follows. But basically, you learn it as part of the word.

You will find that most (though not all) verbs end in the мягкий знак when in the infinitive, so it can be handy in determining that an unknown word might be a verb. Endings like ить ать овать etc are often (though not always) verbs.
