Всем привет! Меня зовут Андреа и я изучаю русский язык. Я Мексикаика, живу в Америке, и мне 20 лет.

This is a personal blog but my interests include politics, history, and Russia. Five years ago, I had to write a thesis on Joseph Stalin which launched my fascination with Soviet history, the Cold War and, eventually, Russia entirely. I spend my time studying the language, history, and culture of the Russian Federation!

To the right, you'll find more direct links to my posts about Россия, the USSR, my not-so-recent trip to Russia, and the Russian politics 'fandom.' Feel free to click on those or send me a message!

Пока!

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 2x09 - “Cased Up” (November 11, 1991)

Аноним сказал: Is it just me, or does reading a language that doesn't originally have roman characters in roman characters feel weird? Like reading 苹果 as Píng guǒ.

tbh I like reading pingying bc I can understand it for the majority of times as compared to the characters since I can’t read every character

For me, seeing, as an example, Привет written as privet/privyet/privjet is the weirdest thing

I hate romanized Russian. ESPECIALLY when they romanize using -y- instead of -j- for й, я, е, ё, and ю (or not at all sometimes), -‘- instead of -j- for ь, -shch- instead of -shj- (or -shh-) for щ, using -kh- for х (I just use -h-), just -e- instead of -je- when е calls for the spelling of -je- (jfc people, do you even russian?), and not, but definitely NOT least, the big two:

  1. The Г in ничего, сегодня, -его, -ого, and a few others should NEVER for the love that is holy and decent in this world be transliterated as -g-. Г in those instances should be transliterated as -v-. Also the г in мягкий and лёгкий should be an -h- (х).
  2. Speaking about лёгкий, the ё should NEVERRR be transliterated as -je- or -e- – that letter is always -jo-. Transliterators should be weary to this as ё isn’t always marked.

learning someone else’s language is so intimate

because you learn to understand how the other thinks by learning his language pattern. something that you might take for granted when you talk to someone who has the same language as you do.

Isn’t there a word that is similar to dialect but on a larger scale? Like to describe the difference between British english and American english, or between Mexican spanish and spanish from Spain.

What’s wrong with calling them dialects or languages? A neutral but not yet widely used term would be languoid.

Дорогие друзья! Президент России, Верховный Главнокомандующий ВС РФ Владимир Путин пользуется всенародной поддержкой. Такого рейтинга нет ни у одного из политиков крупных государств. Миллионы молодых россиян носят футболки с фото Путина. Я сделал такой дорогой подарок министру по делам Северного Кавказа Льву Кузнецову. Мы вместе сфотографировались на память. “Нас не догонят!”🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺

Colorado is a cursed land. It is under constant cloids but it never actually rains until more than 50% of the  population outside forgets to bring their umbrellas
