Russian Top Word


Russian and English are both Proto-Indo European (PIE) languages. My father, who was Russian and was fluent in six languages (Russian, Serbian, German, English, French and Spanish), laughed saying that English was a poorly spoken Russian, giving me the following examples: 

Cyrillic Transcription English
брат brat brother
сестра sistra sister
день dyen' day
ночь noch' night
соль sol' salt
сахар saxhar sugar

In these pages I am gathering details about the Russian language. You can use the menu on the left to select a topic. Most of these pages include a YouTube video with one of my Dad's favorite song, such as: Капитан, МагнолияМарфуша, Очи Чёрные, etc.
