    Russian Language Magazines

    Does anyone know any affordable Russian Language Magazines that one could buy in the U.S. that are designed to help you learn the language better?

    Thanks

    Once, when I was in the public library in Salt Lake City, Utah (don't ask why) I found a Russian magazine that was called Слово, and it had the same articles side by side in Russian and English, so you could compare them easily.

    thanks for your responces, very much appreciated. I do have one additional question and didn't want to start a new thread.

    How is this word pronounced площадь? Does the myechiznak maintain the d sound istead of the t like in город?

    Thanks

    Do you mean мягкий знак? Just pronounce the d with your tongue in the back. To practice, put your tongue on the roof of your mouth and go "Dehhhhhhhhhh" repeatedly until you get the hang of it. I suggest doing this loudly, and in a highly-populated social atmosphere to overcome any nervousness you might experience from speaking a foreign language.

    I like Salt Lake City. It could use some trees but the mountains are pretty. And the new library there is great. There is a little garden on the roof. Plus they have lots of Russian books and also books in lots of other languages. I got to do all of the Russian Pimsluers free from that library. I don't live there anymore but I thought I would stand up for SLC anyway.

    Well then I was your neighbor in Tuscarora Nevada. That's about 60 miles north of Elko. There are no trees in Tuscarora either but tress just get in the way when you are looking for cows.

    No.

    Devoicing still occurs when followed by a soft sign.

    площадь sounds like плошать

    Thank you TATY. You answered precisely what I was asking. Okay I have one more.

    What do you do with nouns like дежурная in the genitive singular case. I can't find the answer in my books. Does it decline like an adj? If it's a man who happends to do that occupation does it end in ый или ий?

    Ok, you asked for it! Bring a box of tissues, you might need them!

    A cold winters day in 2003 Tatyana was studying in Salt Lake City diligently. She was a Ukranian girl learning English and was the most beautiful and intelligent person on Earth! She had a really handsome boyfriend who was extremely smart, funny and particulary very good at waving flags. His name was Kalinka_vinnie, a very common name for people who wave flags well. The only problem with this picture is that Tatyana was in Salt Lake City and Kalinka_vinnie was in St. Petersburg, Russia. They hadn't seen each other for 4 months, so Kalinka_vinnie flew all the way from Russia to Utah to meet this special girl and spend New Years eve with her. It was very expensive and he had to sacrfice his family visit for this, but it was all worth it, that was how much he loved her!

    Kalinka_vinnie arrived in elated spirits, expecting to meet the girl of his dreams with open arms! But no one was at the airport, not even a message at the desk. So he takes the taxi to a hotel and tries to get in contact with her, to no avail. The next day he finally gets in touch with her and she informs him that she no longer loves him, and have a nice new years eve!! So Kalinka_vinnie, not to waste any time, goes to the Salt Lake library to study and become smarter, so he doesn't fall in that trap again!

    But I REALLY like the library!

    Есть такое русское выражение: "С Новым Годом, пошёл нафиг". (это про kalinka )

    Кстати, может, кто скажет, откуда оно взялось?

    Не в тему: еще хочу узнать, откуда выражение "Для тех, кто в танке"

    Try searching "davai" on amazon. It looks like you can get a subscription to the magazine there.

    Это потому что в танке плохо слышно, что происходит снаружи. Правда сама в танке не сидела, поэтому до какой степени плохо не знаю.
