Translation:a glass of milk

[ He ‧ Him ‧ both refer to Tim but take the different form because of Case. If the concept of grammatical Case is unfamiliar then consider getting familiar. cooljugator.com/run/чай ]

‧ Case is a special grammatical category ‧ In some languages, ‧ words take Case dependent different inflected forms ‧ English word case used in this sense comes from the Latin casus, which is derived from the verb cadere, "to fall", from the Proto-Indo-European root ḱad-.en. ‧ The sense is that all other cases are considered to have "fallen" away from the nominative. ‧ This is also reflected in the word declension, from Latin declinere, "to lean", from the PIE root ḱley- ‧ wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatical_case

does стакан translate to both glass and cup in English? I'm confused because some questions say it's correct, some say it's not

"Glass" translates as "стакан", and "cup" translates as "ча́шка".
