You have to agree the relative pronouns with the gender of the nouns Look at this: This is the child who is playing outside.
This is the letter which Im writing. The man is beautiful. The woman is beautiful. The child is beautiful. In the dictionaries the adjectives are given in their masculine forms. But when the adjective ends in plus other consonant, the is dropped. Exercise B: Translate these sentences into Bulgarian: 1 He is seeing his wife. She is seeing Anton who is going into a shop. The shop is big.
She is going into it too: Marian: Hello, Anton. What are you doing here? Anton: Hello, Maria. I'm going shopping. I need some bread. The shopkeeper is going and bringing the bread to Anton. The shopkeeper: The bread today is very delicious. Anton is taking it and putting it into the bag. Anton: How much does the bread cost? The shopkeeper answers: - 75 stotinki. Anton is gives them to the shopkeeper and together with Maria goes out of the shop.
Solution of Exercise B: 1. In five lessons we'll try to teach you the basics of the Russian language. Russian is a major language in the world, it has many speakers. Most speakers are of course located in Russia. But also former Soviet countries have many Russian speakers. Russian is a Slavic language. Verbs Adjectives Negation and questions Vocabulary Exercises. Russian is not written in our Latin alphabet but it uses the Cyrillic alphabet.
The Cyrillic alphabet is, like our Latin alphabet, a descendant of the Greek alphabet. But Cyrillic has some more characters, the Russian Cyrillic alphabet contains 33 letters in total. All of those will be discussed in this lesson. Russian is not the only language that uses the Cyrillic alphabet. Thus learning it might come in handy. Let's begin by just writing down the entire Cyrillic alphabet. Equivalence as a in "father" as b in "big" as v in "virgin" as g in "great" as d in "doctor". In colloquial language though, this may ] sound like a very long "sh" sound It's like a moan in the throat and is therefore in the throat with slightly backward curled tongue.
So you'll have to memorize where to put it. Stress is especially important when it comes to the letter "" , because stress determines it's pronunciation. Therefore in this course we will put an apostrophe ' after the vowel that has to be stressed. Note that is always stressed. Example: ' This concludes the first chapter, you might have to read over it several times to get to know the characters. The following exercises will help you practice your knowledge of Cyrillic:.
Lesson 2: , e Introductions Unlike most Indo-European languages, the Russian language uses no verb "to be". Moreover, the Russian language doesn't have articles either, so the words "the, a" and "an" do not exist in Russian, which makes Russian kind of a Tarzan language at first sight. For example, we say "I am a student" whereas Russians would simply say I student. Let's take a look at some introductions in Russian, which will make you familiar with the words for I, you, he, she etc I am Ivan and I am a student.
You are Ivan and you are a student. He is Ivan and he is a student. She is Ivanova and she is a student. We are Ivan and Pyotr and we are students. You are Ivan and Pyotr and you are students. They are Ivan and Pyotr and they are students. The above example showed you all so-called personal pronouns.
You now know how to say "I" and "We", etc.. You have also learned the word for "and", which is of course "". You have also learned the word for "student", which becomes "'" in it's feminine form and "'" in it's plural form. Russian is not an easy language, although you might find it easy that there are no words such as "the, a" and "to be". The Russian language has noun gender and cases. This may not say much to you yet, so we will look into this more.
Noun Gender To explain the concept of noun-gender we'll first have to explain what a noun is, if you didn't already know. A noun is a word that represents an object a person or an abstract something, nouns can be preceded in English by the word "the". In most other languages, but not in English, a noun has a certain gender. So you're telling me a noun can be a boy or a girl? A noun has a certain gender, in Russian and many other Germanic languages there are three genders: masculine, feminine and neuter. Every noun note that this gender concept only applies to nouns has one of these three genders.
How to determine what gender is very difficult sometimes, but most grammar rules are dependent of the gender of the noun, so you'll have to learn the gender of each noun. From now on, we will mention the gender of a noun when we discuss one, we use the abbreviations "m" for masculine, "f" for feminine and "n" for neuter.
Pointing at Possession We will now discuss two important parts of Russian grammar, noun-gender plays a very important role here, as with most other grammar rules as well. We have already learned to say things like "He is a student". Now we will take a look at how to point at things or people, by saying: "This is a student" or "That is a student". Noun gender will get involved now and we will also see a separating in this and that: "" will be used for "this" while "" will be used for "that".
And they all have to agree with the noun in gender and number. The following example will explain this: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '. Possession Now we will discuss possession. Like in any languages, it is also possible in Russian to say things like: "My car", "Your book", etc Take a look at the following example: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '. So if the noun is masculine you use ", , " or "", if the noun is feminine you use "', ', " or "" and if it's neuter you use ", , " or "". We haven't discussed the plural form yet, that will come in a later lesson. There is only one more thing we need to discuss.
We haven't yet discussed the translation for the possessive adjectives "his", "her" and "their". But you are fortunate, because these three words don't act like the ones we just mentioned. They don't have to agree with the noun in gender, so you just use one form for all genders. The following example will demonstrate this: ' ' ' This is his book f ' ' This is her book f ' ' This is their book f ' ' ' This is his car m ' ' This is her window n ' This is their table m This concludes the second lesson. Lesson 3: Plurality Plurality You have already seen nouns in their singular form, but it's of course also possible to put Russian nouns in a plural form.
Noun gender plays an important role here, because the gender of the noun determines what suffix to add to make the noun plural. The modification of nouns by adding such 'suffixes' are called commonly called 'reflections', the Russian language contains a huge number of these inflections, because a noun will also have a different ending depending on the case it's in.
But more about that later. Let us first start by showing how to make a noun plural. We will give you the following table, which will also help you spot gender of nouns by looking at their ending. The endings of the noun have been separated from it's root word by a hyphen -. Note that this is only for clarity's sake. The hyphen is not written normally and it just forms one word.
If you have a word and you want to know how to make it plural, then you'll first have to know what gender the word is in. Usually it's ending will give away it's gender. You have seen that the masculine gender has three typical endings, a consonant, a "" and a "". But as you see, the feminine gender also has a group ending in "", so with many words you will still have to memorize gender yourself, there are also many irregularities. Now we know how to form plural we can expand our knowledge from the previous lesson.
Now we will discuss the plural form of this. First of all, when you want to say "these are students" then you can just say " '", so there's no special thing their yet. But when you want to say "these students" then we will need a new word declension of " ", for all plural nouns so fortunately in all genders we use "' ", the plural of "" would be "". It's important to pay much attention to all those endings, because Russian is full of them! Now we will take a look at our possessive adjectives. They also have one plural form for all genders. Let's look at the following example: ' '' My wife f ' '' My wives ' '' Your window n ' '' Your windows n ' Our table m ' '' Our tables Also pay attention to the way the stress of a noun can change when it becomes plural.
Being polite. We now first have to teach you how to be polite in Russian. In Russian and most other languages, but not in English, there exists a certain polite form of "you". In Russian they use "" instead of "" in formal speech. So "" means both "you-all" as well as "you" in a more polite form. Take a look at the following sample sentences: '. You are a student informal, spoken to a friend You are a student formal, spoken from a teacher to a new student for ' example ' You are students plural both formal and informal When addressing strangers, you'll always want to use "".
To have As you already saw, the Russians do not use a verb for "to be". Likewise, they don't use a verb for "to have". Whereas we say, for example, "I have a table", the Russians say "With me - is a - table". Or in Russian: " ' ". The word "" is a preposition, followed by the person in genitive case. We will for. This is especially the case in questions and answers but it can also occur elsewhere. Take a look at the following question-answer pair. Do we have a table? We have one. In the next lesson, we will make you get acquainted with the concept of cases.
Lesson 4: Cases Cases Cases are a very difficult grammatical matter. It is possible that you have never heard of cases and that you have never dealt with them before. That's why we will try to explain them from start. If you have ever studied another language that has cases, such as Latin or German, then you will probably no how to handle them and what they are, which will give you a head-start on Russian. Several languages make use of so-called cases. In English cases are not used and therefore most people won't know what cases are. But in many other languages, such as German and Russian there are cases.
Unfortunately cases make a language a lot more difficult to learn, but they do make a grammar more elegant. What exactly is a case? A case is a certain 'mode' a word appears in, nouns, pronouns, articles and adjectives usually get a special ending reflections depending on in what case they are in. Cases appear at a certain place in the sentence or after certain prepositions or verbs. In Russian there are six cases, in German there are four. But you most likely need further explanation. Let's use an example to get to know cases. Look at the following sentences: "My mother is in the kitchen" "It's my mother's birthday" "I give my mother a present" "He sees my mother" These four sample sentences show the first four cases using the words "my mother".
The first case would be Nominative case, the case we will deal with in this chapter, the other will be taught later on. But still, you don't know what a case is so let's go on with it. Nominative case is all about subjects. The other three sample sentences are different. Although they all have the words "my mother", it appears in a different position each time. In the 2nd sentence "my mother" is used possessively this is called Genitive case, or 2nd case.
So in languages such as German and Russian, "my mother" has to be adapted so it can be used as Genitive, this is usually done by applying different endings to the noun reflections. Each case has it's own endings, and those endings are also gender dependent. Masculine nouns usually have a different ending in Genitive case and any case than feminine nouns. It is a target. This is called Dative case, or 3rd case. More about this case in a moment. You know that cases occur when words appear on a certain place in the sentence, but besides that, cases can also occur after certain prepositions and sometimes even after certain verbs.
So certain prepositions can, for example, always cause an Accusative case. The words the preposition applies to will then have to agree with that case and they should get the appropriate ending. You should now understand what a case is. It is a certain position in the sentence where a word appears and that word has to have a proper ending in order to be correctly used at that position in the sentence. Usually cases also replace prepositions. The sentence: "I give my mother a present" for example, by using "my mother" on that position and with a certain reflection in Russian, one knows that you give a present TO your mother, but it's not necessary to use the preposition.
Also do note that by saying that "a word has to have a proper ending in order to be used at a certain position in a sentence", I refer to nouns and adjectives. Usually they are all case dependent AND gender- and number dependent. The case we have mostly used now is the nominative case. The nouns where the subject of the sentence, but now we will take a look at accusative case which we have already used a bit, without you realizing it Accusative Case. Accusative case is all about the "direct object".
The direct object is a group of words although it can also be one word that receive the action of the main verb carried out by the subject. The answer to the question will then me the direct object: the object of the action. Some examples: "I see the dog", "who do I see?
You can already guess where in a sentence words should be adapted to Accusative Case: when they are the direct object. That's right. When a noun, adjective, article or some pronouns appear as a direct object you should give the words the proper ending to make them suitable for Accusative case. What happens in the accusative case? You are fortunate because some masculine and neuter nouns usually don't change in the accusative case, so you can often just use the same word as in the nominative case there which is the word as you've learned it, nomnitive case is always the default case. Feminine singular words, however, do change in the accusative case.
So when a feminine word is a direct object, you will have to modify it's ending so it reflects the correct case. In order to demonstrate this we say that "I see" is " '" in Russian. More about verbs will be learned in the next lesson, so just assume this as a fact for now. Take a look at the following example: I see a book What do I see? Note that there are many verbs which can take an accusative case, all those verbs transitive verbs have an effect on something, something is the object of the action.
Russian has six cases and three genders, which makes the amount of reflections huge. This is the most difficult task in learning Russian. But it is possible, so don't give up! Note that " " etc You just use normal nominative case there. We have discussed a lot of theoretical stuff in this lesson, so we will end this lesson now. Lesson 5: Verbs and more! Verbs Until now, we have not seen a single verb, mainly because "to be" and "to have" are not expressed using verbs in Russian. In this lesson we are going to change that because Russian, of course does have many verbs.
Russian verbs are conjugated according to two groups. The stem of the verb can be obtained by dropping -. They follow the same pattern. Now we will take a look at the second group of verbs. There are even some verbs in - which follow this pattern, so it is important to learn which each verb whether it's conjugated according to group one, group two, or whether it's irregular. Adjectives We haven't spoken about adjectives yet. In case you don't know what an adjective is, I'll give you a short explanation.
An adjective is a word that describes a property of a noun, so it tells something about the noun. For example, look at the following sentence-part: the old woman.
- Bulgarian Russian English Language | Grammatical Gender | Noun!
- Tactical Chess Exchanges.
- Risk-based ship design: methods, tools and applications;
Here the adjective is ""old" because it tells something about the noun "woman" Unfortunately adjectives are also quite hard in Russian because they have a lot of different endings. They have. There are actually three groups of adjectives, all agreeing with the noun in a slightly different way. We have the unstressed adjectives ending in - or - , which have unstressed endings and stressed stems, and we have the stress adjectives, which have a stressed ending -' and an unstressed stem.
And then there are some 40 soft-adjectives, which generally end in -. Also note that Russian adjectives are usually placed before the noun, like in English, though word order can be flexible too. Adjectives as shown in the dictionary and in courses are always in their nomnitive singular masculine form.
In this course we will not go into adjectives much further Negation and questions It is of course in Russian quite possible to say "no". The Russians say, as you probably already know: "" whereas they say "" as "yes". When we want to make a sentence negative, then Russians simply add the word "" before the verb if there is a verb. Take a look at the following sample which will also demonstrate how to ask question: ' ' This is a book ' ' This is not a book ' '?
Is this a book? Do I speak Russian? You can see the simplicity of negation and of asking questions in Russian here! There are also more ways to ask question using the following interrogative pronouns: '? What do we know? Who knows? Who speaks? Where do you work? How does he know? When does she work?
