About this blog

177712177.jpg

 

Intro:

 

Since I'm not sure a Russian Talk thread would get much attention I'll just make a blog. Hopefully some people want to engage if they know the language, or engage if they want to try and learn it.

 

As I go through my self study with books and audio tapes, I'll post content here (after I get off from studying/exercising). Expect things like info on phonology, morphology, case/tense practice, vocabulary building and sentence practice. Maybe this will help someone else interested in learning as well. I'll try to keep the posts as detailed as possible. Between studying and sessions, hopefully I'll wonder about something on the internet as a free resource, or a book will be checked into my library, that will help improve my Russian and this blog.

 

Oh, and as I go further in, I'll link to specific portions of the blog here in the main post for ease and organization.

If you need clearer images, I went ahead and googled some more references for you that you can get to by cli

Learning to Read Russian

After practicing the sounds in the previous entry (click here to be linked there) we can start to practice reading some vocabulary. Doing this now will see if you remember the sounds, or if there are some problematic sounds you can't yet make. I'm going to give the Russian words to the left, their pronunciations to the center and the translations to the right. Cover the pronunciations and the translations with a sheet of paper or an extra window (open up firefox or something), or you will be che

Russian Sounds

Russian Sound Inventory   1st Post   For the sake of ease, I will include the "non-Linguistic" method of explaining the sounds as well as providing the IPA of each vowel and consonant (they will be wrapped in a parenthesis). Since I am at the beginning of the  book, I will not delve too deep into Allophony, merging, etc etc. Maybe the book will cover that later. I don't wish to jump ahead for my own good as well as anyone who may be reading this. Anyways... first I'll break them
