    надеюсь?

    What does надеюсь mean?

    It's not in my dictionary and the online dictionaries I've tried don't have a translation.

    It's used in "I know about lots of Russian authors and their work. надеюсь when I can manage, I read...."

    Thanks

    It's the verb надеяться which means to hope, to expect. So надеюсь is simply the verb conjugated in the first person singular.

    In dictionary you must to type in verb

    идти, спать, надеяться (and not иду, сплю, надеюсь)

    надеюсь:

    1) hope (for; + to inf.), expect
    надеяться на что-л. — hope for
    я надеюсь увидеть вас сегодня — I hope to see you today

    2) rely (on), trust
    надеяться на кого-л. — rely on ; trust.
    не надеяться на кого-л. — have no confidence in

    You should try Lingvo -- it usually does a pretty good job with working out conjugated verbs, including надеяться\надеюсь here.

    Kwatts you miss the point. The verb is in her dictionary. She looked up the verb in a conjugates form, when, as most poeple know, verbs are listed in the infinitive form. If they listed every form of the verb in a dictionary seperately image how big dictionaries would be.

    Online dictionaries are alright. Note that I said dictionaries and not 'translators'.

    This is a common Russian word and it's in even the most basic and bad dictionaries.

    I reckon multitran sucks. You type in a simple word and you get a million words which usually don't fit or are ridiculous and never heard in modern English.

    But in Multitran you can type in ANY form of the word.
    This one though limited comes in handy.

    Is the word "reckon" typically used by Kiwis? For some reason, I always identified it as being used by American southerners...

    In the sense of "think," "reckon" is mainly used by southerners.

    heck, if you are going to list India, you might as well list the whole Europe. Hindi is the offical language of India. And don't come and tell me you can go to Pakistan and expect so speak English!

    pairs and couples

    I calculate and consider that 'reckon' or 'judge' might be regarded and believed to be synonymous to assume or suppose. As I collect and think I can apparently and obviously estimate and assess to count and conclude that I conceive and perceive we can and may use and engage and all kinds and sorts of these words and terms in our speech and talking; and I gather and am convinced that it appears and seems to me that I'm not a US shoutherner nor am I a man from the South of the US. So it does not matter and is unsubstantiated, not essencial. Do you comprehend and understand?

    So the hell what. It's meaningless that Gambia speaks English. Speaking English != using 100% same terminology. I don't say aubergine for eggplant, nor do I say "poke" for bag/sack, etc. If you want to tell me that "reckon" is used often or in many locales, fine -- but don't dump an irrelevant list of countries and tell me that's definitive proof that "reckon" is used there.

    Dude, I reckon it's assumed we're working off our experiential knowledge... no one's going to India to see how many people say "reckon." I've only ever heard US southerners use "reckon" in the sense of "think."
