"Що ви шукаєте?"

Translation:What are you looking for?

April 10, 2016



The pronounciation of the word шукаєте is very similar to slovak pronun. of word "š(ш)ukajete". For slovak people this means "to f*ck". So when you say Що ви шукаєте? I do not want to even pronounce this word at home. :D

So in Czech and Slovak its a curse word and in Ukrainian and Polish it's "to look for".

I wonder if it's cognate to the German "suchen"

It does sound strange that only "Що" is necessary to express that something is being looked for. Which case does "шукати" ask for?

Sorry, I don't get what you mean.

Що = what

ви = you (plural)

шукати = to search, look for -> шукаєте (conjugated to you plural)

--> Що ви шукаєте?
