russian_pianist Posted January 29, 2014 Report Share Posted January 29, 2014 Hello Everyone!Всем привет!What a title to the topic, don't you think it is eye catching?But do not think, that this post will talk about some "really harsh" words. By the way, these words would be called "нецензурные" meaning that they should be censured from one's speech. In a less formal way these words are called "матерные слова" and you won't hear them in an educated person's speech. However, no country in inhabited by polite and highly educated people only, would not you agree? So, more often than not there will be some very expressive words and phrases you'd hear in the street. It is unlikely, that someone would address you in such an informal (to say the least) way, but it is better to know such words and never say them, than have no idea what they sound like. Let's start at the beginning - the most innocent name calling kids do at school. Oh, all kids do that, no matter what language they speak, there are still words they use to describe their enemies and demonstrate their superiority.Дурак - "durak" - is probably the most widely used, meaning that your opponent is not as clever as you expected him to be.Корова - "korova" - unkind girls would call their chubby classmate, comparing her to a domesticated cloven-hoofed animal. (By the way, Enlglish and American kids use the same words, or very similar ones, in similar circumstances, as strange as it may seem).Well, do you know any Russian swearwords? Do tell...Have a great day/night! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
