"Where is a cat?"
Technically yes, though you could translate 'Where is the cat?' as 'Де цей кіт?'. 'Цей' means 'this', btw.
Yes, we don't have a concept of articles :)As RainbowVomit911 said, if we need some specification similar to the one obtained by using "the" in English, we say той (that) or цей (this)
Yes, just depends on the context.
1) Де кіт? (Where is the/a cat?)
2) -- Кіт там. (The/a cat is there)
-- Кіт де? (The/a cat is where?)
Replied in another comment, but can copy the reply everywhere in case other people stumble upon it :)
Italics seem to take on the cursive shapes, rather than print shapes of letters. In Ukrainian cursive, ts look like a rounded m and ms look like a pointed m.
Most of the other letters look fairly similar to their print form, but there are a few which are hard to guess.
Thank you! I would love to see the whole set of cursive to learn it also!
Here they are written out: http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/i_helm/25443779/26410/26410_original.jpg
б looking like d, д looking like g, и looking like u and г looking like a backwards s are the other ones which I think are the most confusing.
I have a Ukrainian/English keyboard and I have to press Alt Gr with u (which is where the г is, so easy to remember)
Have a look at the University of Kansas website. They have a good Ukrainian keyboard which is mapped to the sounds of the English letters.
so for example s = с, v = в, p = п and so on.
It works well in Windows 7,8, 8.1, Vista and XP.
