"Ви п'єте сік і молоко?"

Translation:Do you drink juice and milk?

May 24, 2015



Like, together?


Uh, remember - milk is cow juice


Milk tea, papaya milk banana milk =heaven


When I was a child my mom told me that drinking juice with milk together would upset my stomach like nothing else, like vomiting guaranteed. So, of course, the next chance I got I just had to try this out, just to see for myself if she was right. And while it stayed in my stomach, it sure as hell was the most vile thing I drank.


Eww, curdled milk juice. To be fair, I drank fruit tea with milk when I was a kid because I didn't realize this exact thing.


Well, I never understood drinking any kind of tea with milk.


guarantee of diarrhea.


see you on toilet


Тут є одна відмінність. And тут може перекладатися на українську, як "і" так і "та". Але це зовсім не свідчить про те, що молоко змішане з соком. Якщо б воні були змішані, то був би використаний інший прийменник - "з". У випадку "ви п’єте молоко (разом) з соком" - вже зрозуміло, що вони змішані.


What's the difference between "п'ю" and "п'єте" ?


The apostrophe shows that the p isn't affected, or "palatalized" by the following ioticized vowel. I'm not sure what the affect of palatalization, if any, would be in this case, but it's the same thing that happens when the 'jer' character comes after a consonant like in 'uncle'/'djad(zh)ko'.


The ' (apostrophe) is the hard sign in Ukrainian. As you indicated, the preceeding vowel is not softened, and the following vowel is fully palatalized (ioticized). The best way to visualize this process is to say the п fully before the є; in other words, don't run them together as if they are a dipthong, as is often done in English. For example, in English the word 'please' is sometimes pronounced p-leeze when someone wants to emphasize it. The p is pronounced separately to the l. In normal use, the p and l are said as one sound.


You mean the apostrophe?


Why does ви sound more like vihyeh than vih here?


I think that juice OR milk should also be accepted, because it underlines that I also do NOT drink the second one. I guess
