And now i feel like a psychopath after repeating "your blood" 4 times. Why am i learning that word? :p
I always look for similarities between languages. In Polish you can say "your blood" to e.g your friend who has a boy that behaves exactly like his father. So in this context "Your son, your blood" means in Polish that we appreciate the way a son was brought up.
Does it work like that in Russian? :)
- твоя - thy/thine, your/yours (possessive nominative singular feminine)
- тебя - thee/you (pronoun genitive/accusative singular)
Any way we could get examples in a situation?.. Would be very helpful :)
твоя means "your", a possessive pronoun (for feminine nouns):
I love your apple - Я люблю твоя яблоко
Your book is there - твоя книга там
тебя is means "you" as an object
- I love you - Я люблю тебя.
тебя is also used as the genitive case of ты, as seen in previous lessons:
- You have an apple - у тебя ест яблоко
Note: sorry for some eventual mistake, I am just learning Russian
Why is it feminine (твоя) instead of masculine? Is кровь feminine? If it is, why is it feminine?
кровь is feminine. Nouns ending in a soft sign (ь) can be masculine or feminine. Mostly you just have to learn their genders individually.
With the multiple choice I tried ваши, knowing quite fully that твоя was also very likely to be the correct answer. Doesn't ваши mean something similar to "you", or "yours"? What's the difference between ваши "you"-words (-ваше/ваша) and твоя "you"-words? Thanks!
From what I understand, it's formality- similar to ты and вы, ваш being formal.
Then write out each question and the correct answer, then answer them correctly and then spend some time "parsing" (for want of a better word) each sentence. Lights will start to come on as to the answers But if you are on a phone or something and not a computer ..... then i have no suggestions ))) Also I was trying to help and not trying to be a smart a*se )))
Most often it is feminine besides a few exceptions (when Genetive Signular of the word ends in -я then it's masculine).
