Russian language has a very developed system of suffixes that allow us to express the whole range of emotions, starting from caress and tenderness and finishing with hatred and scorn. In this lesson we’ll cover a part of them that’s called diminutive-hypocoristic suffixes (уменьши́тельно-ласка́тельные су́ффиксы).
As you already know from one of the previous lessons, the pronoun какой means ‘what’ or ‘which’. To be able to construct questions with it, you should know how to decline it.
We’ve already covered Russian personal, demonstrative, and possessive pronouns, as well as reflexive pronoun себя, reflexive possessive pronoun свой, and emphatic definite pronoun сам. So you already know quite a bit about Russian pronouns, but not everything yet.
In one of the previous lessons we already covered the vocabulary related to health. Today we continue with the health and are going to learn some words and phrases that you could use in a pharmacy.
Today we continue with the superlative degree of adjectives. You can find the first part here.
The superlative degree indicates that someone or something has the quality of the adjective to a degree greater than that of anything it is being compared to. In this lesson we are going start learning how to form the superlative degree of Russian adjectives.
