    Nika, my question to you: Google Translate gave me Я не люблю ездить на метро. I varied my English sentence to "I do not like to ride the Metro" with the same result. Are "в метро" and "на метро" both correct?

    When you said "word used by linguists" I thought of лингва-франка which is also indeclinable.

    And.....I am so sorry!
    You don't "cook" sushi. It's raw fish!
    (I have taught English as a foreign language.) In America, we say that someone "makes" sushi :)/

      Thank you, Sadia! In Russian we still use the verb готовить, so I used it, I didn't know that in English we cannot say this way. Also, we can say делать as well :)
      Thank you for watching our videos :)

    Извините, что не в тему. Как правильно перевести на английский выражение "уменьшительно-ласкательный суффикс"? Спасибо

      RU-LAND CLUB  Year ago

      Отлично сказано))) Вот такой ласковый русский язык)))

    • Kem
      Kem Year ago

      Спасибо! Понятно, в английском есть свое название, а буквально не переводится. Просто уменьшительный суффикс, без ласкания))

      RU-LAND CLUB  Year ago

      it is "diminutive suffix", like in these words: заяц-зайЧИК, тарелка - тарелОЧКа, стол - столИК
