Entries presentation

Each entry is presented in three variants: English original, Russian equivalent, and its practical transcription. To view Russian texts correctly, please check russification of your computer. The practical transcription of Russian expressions employs Latin letters and does not pretend to transfer accuracy of the phonemic structure; nevertheless it allows pronouncing Russian words and phrases quite correctly. For your convenience all words in the practical transcription are divided into syllables with stressed syllables being put in initial letters. The majority of phrases can belong both to man and woman - those phrases are given in dark gray color font. However, some phrases in Russian language can belong either only to man or only to woman. You'll find such expressions in the Phrasebook colored in blue and red correspondingly.
For example:
I am American. male voice
female voice
Я американец.
Я американка.
ya ah-meh-ree-KA-nehts.
ya ah-meh-ree-KAHN-ka.
Note: we tried to make exact translation of the English phrases as a rule, however in some cases we had rather to convey situational correspondence.

Audio support

You can listen to the pronunciation of all the expressions included in the Phrasebook. To have more complete idea of real Russian speech we offer you both male and female voice recordings. Moreover, these recordings differs slightly: the female voice reads at a slow, regular pace, whether the male voice approaches to real speech in everyday surroundings. That's why we recommend you to listen to the female voice recording at first. To playback male/female voice audio support, click blue/red button near the phrase you are interested in.
For example:
Hi! male voice female voice Привет! pree-VEHT!
Note: to make use of the sound support, you may need to install RealAudio Player by RealNetworks, Inc. [download free version]

Note: we do not apply RealAudio streaming technology on our site yet, therefore the sound files are fully preloaded before the playback. Since all the sound fragments are short enough, it practically does not cause the playback delay or any other inconveniences.

Words combining - the Phrasebook frequently represents a kind of tool for sentence constructing. You are offered to choose either beginning of the phrase or its continuation at your desire.
