Maybe not new words.

Does any body else have experience of speaking in two languages simultaneously?


Alla and I often do and sometimes with hilarious consequences.
The last, and probably the funniest, we were talking about food.
I used the Rooski for peas горох (goroh)and asked Alla for confirmation that I was correct, Alla said "That is Peas, Da" and almost instantaneously developed a look of horror on her face and at the same time bust out laughing "What have I just said" was her next comment and then the penny dropped and I also could not talk for laughter.

Today I learned a new word in Russia......

The word udobno= Convenient and also Proper.....

So in my view there is no way you will know when somebody tell you if it is proper behaviour or convenient :( !

The confusion between languages is always good for some fun.
When Mila just arrived she was brushing up her English, but it was now and then mixed with Russian. One of the words we still use from that time is our version of neighbours.
In Russian it is sozietz, however Mila once managed to use sausages... and we continued that until today. [aferim.gif]

to add pozhaluista (пожалуйста) is always nice but never ever add or use "Блать блать блать" especially in a decent company [wink.gif]

Wiz, it was not a correction. I just spell it grammatically.

For example korova (корова) is grammatically correct spelling, but phonetically we say it "karova".

If your MIL understand you she must be right regarding your Russian.

hm... I don't think it is a good idea to add the latin spelling to the words that sound as Russian swearing (or foul language) and indirectly "teach" our members to not decent Russian words. But on the other hand probably it is good to know what the bad words mean and not to get into uncomfortable and silly situation. I remember one case when one foreign man was taught how to say a phrase in Russian that sounded funny to him but was not given the correct explanation of the phrase, and when he said it in a company of Russians everybody just was staring at him (I would say) in perplexity while he was laughing alone... after the explanation of the phrase meaning to him he felt not so comfortable.

As you know I have somebody translating to me all the "nice words" but I know not to use them when I try to communicate in Russia......

But I have fun when I say, as a joke........Netayiot..........to see the face of my sister in Law...... [rolf.gif]

Naturally most people learning another language.... always learn the bad words......in my experience.

The other day I was talking to MIL and Hanna decided to translate..... and got a terse reply from Mama.... I understand everything Yannis say.........You ought to see Hanna's face........ :lol: :lol: :lol:
