З'їсти or їсти?
I've seen these two before, and they both seem to mean "to eat". I'm sure about їсти, but what about the other one? Is it a synonym?
These may roughly be translated as:
Я їв яблуко = I was eating an apple
Я з'їв яблуко = I have eaten an apple
Я їстиму яблуко = I will be eating an apple
Я з'їм яблуко = I will eat an apple
There are lots of pairs of verbs in Ukrainian language like this. нести - принести, казати - сказати, робити - зробити. These are called imperfective and perfective verbs.
