    Уж кто-кто

    Please translate "Уж кто-кто" from the phrase "Уж кто-кто , а Г. никогда бы не нарушила..." into English.

    I think it's "G., of all people, would never break..."

    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    of all people

    In English, the translation makes best sense if "уж кто-кто" is translated as "Of all people".

    But I am curious, how did E-Learner [or the respondents] know that Г. refered to Hermione of HP fame?

    Elementary, my dear Siriusly, elementary.

    1. You have already asked a similar question in another thread, and pointed out the book your question was about.
    2. I had read this book, as well as some of its sequels, and the phrase "Г. никогда бы не нарушила" immediately reminded me of Hermione Granger. She was always making such a fuss about breaking rules.
