By the way! There's a mistake in this sentence. It should be: "непогано". Not two words, but one!
"не погано" is actually also possible, but only if there's contrast, for example: "не погано, а добре" (not bad, but well)
A is short for "ale"? Is it common speech, colloquial, informal?
Ukrainian has an "H" sound?!
Goes from /ɦ/ to /x/ to /ɣ/. Depends on speaker and dialect. Where I am from we almost always say /ɣ/ in both languages.
the letter H in Ukrainian sounds like our letter N. :D
I think he means the third letter of second word.
Yes, sorry! The letter г sounds like the H for english speakers!
And that's how we usually transliterate it :)
Why the neuter ending? Why not "поганий" or "погана"? Is neuter the default ending?
погано is not an adjective, but an adverb. A lot of adverbs end in "o"
Neuter of поганий is погане.
Default ending for adj. is masculine one :)
If you just say погано, would that mean "bad", or do you have to alter the word at all? Thanks!
Yep, bad is погано
