I keep mistaking babushki for grandfather because б is such a fatherly consonant...
it is my problem too! in tuscanian (an italian dialect) we say dad as "babbo", so бабушка really is a false friend to me
Many times heavy consonant words will be masculine - just roll with the punches
Once Kate Bush explains it to you you'll never forget again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xckBwPdo1c
I don't get it. In this example they are Plural. Last one said дедушки and it was singular.
I wonder if the previous example was, У меня нет дедушки. This is genitive singular ('I have none of a grandfather' is how you can think of it to remember the genitive involved in negation).
Yes, same problem
Good to read also some positive sentences. Far better than: "The boy has no mother"
₩ yes way better indeed
Does Russian generally use the word "love" about personal non-romantic relationships?
Do "любит" and "любят" sound indistiguishable?
There should be a very subtle distinction where the и sounds more like a short "i" and the я sounds more like "uh" but it is subtle.
Why is 'like' wrong in this case when it is correct in other sentences?
"Like" is about personal romantic relationships in Russian.
i got it wrong because i switches the orders... UGGHHHH
