    MasterAdmin, not to be rude, but may I offer a few unsolicited comments?
    -Why would someone want to buy an "alphabet" shirt? I mean, besides for cheating on first-year tests?
    -The "мама" shirt looks too "englishy" -- both words look like they're in English and it's "russification" is lost! Maybe "мать" would work better?
    Good luck with the site in any case. Maybe you should add certain members' names with slashes through them?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    I think we'll make "мать" t-shirt in the future but think what child would call his mother "мать"? Imagnie a 7-year old walking to his mother and saing "Мать, налей мне молока пожалуйста."

    As for the alphabet t-shirt I just find it fun. I would buy one if I were just starting to learn Russian.

    No, I completely understand that, my point is just that "мама" doesn't look especially exotic on a t-shirt.

    Можно написать "мамуля" или "мамочка" (хотя я слова мамочка не люблю, какая-то бабочка-самочка ). Будет выглядеть достаточно экзотично и ближе по значению к "mammy".

    No, you'd have to get a hammer and sickle track suit for yourself to go with it. Then you can go for your morning jog together and pick up East German "babes."

    Of course this is correct, because as all of us foreigners know, Russian works the same way as English, it's just spelled with the weird letters...
