  5. "Ви не їсте мед."

"Ви не їсте мед."

Translation:You do not eat honey.

May 23, 2015



So, is the ї like a normal i but with a "y sound" in front?


Basically, ї = йі


So am I right in thinking that Ukrainian unlike most slavic languages doesn't unvoice voiced consonants at the end of words? That is, мед is pronounced med, not met, correct?


If you are a sloppy everyday speaker it might sounds close to "met", because "med" just requires too much effort and throat work. But the woman in the audio really tries to make it super clear, so it sounds like a very hard pronounced "med" here.


what are the conjugations of the verb to eat and how can i apply it to other verbs.


Apparently, "You do not eat the honey" is not the same as "You do not eat honey". Why is it wrong?


"Ви" може трактуватися як "you" або "they". Пропоную в реченнях з "you" вживати "Ти" замість "Ви". Тоді все буде зрозуміло і не буде двозначності.


Don't and do not are equally accepted in english grammar as exactle the same thing. It even goes as far as counting contractions as two separate words.


Do you not eat honey!!!! Заперечне речення.
