I haven't gotten to it yet, but how do you say "grandfather" in Ukrainian?
A lot of these words are very similar to Polish. Here, дядько (uncle) is similar to dziadek (grandfather in Polish).
Please stop confusing me. Дядько sounds like "grandpa" but means "uncle", while дідусь sounds like "baby" but means "grandpa" :( Зараз means "now" instead of "in a moment" :(
When you say "зараз" to your mom you often mean "in a moment" or even "by the end of the day, but just please not now" :D
Could be worse lol Serbian and Chroatian Bibles use the word 'курва' for adulterous woman :/ true story
Same in Polish, spelled "Kurwa"/"Kurva", though being slang it can be anything from "prostitute" to "slut" to just a general intensifier like how "❤❤❤❤" is used in English.
In fact you can still try to have parallels here. діти - dzieci дідусь - dziadek дядько - wujek, - but the word вуйко is used in Western Ukraine from time to time, though the chance is you won't be understood in the rest of Ukraine is pretty high.
Jes, la ukraina estas tre bela lingvo, mi amas ĝin (kaj ĝi estas plej facila ol la rusa) ;)
It would be nice if there is a artifical voice for everything, at least this early on while we are learning the way the letters are pronounced
Both. Maternal is вуйко, paternal - стрийко. But those are only used in some parts and are mostly unknown to the rest of the country.
Only Ukrainian platform at Duolingo has transcribed letters. Why? It is not fair to the language-spelling and for us who would like to learn language seriously.
There is a way to change it over - next to the tips and notes section you will find a button that is set to Aa when you are using Latin letters, but if you click on it it changes to Яя and now your lessons will be in Cyrillic :)
My father, who was Ukrainian, had us use "dyido" or "дідo" for grandfather.
