    Hello!!

    :P , Hello my name is Francesca, and I am just wondering if there would be any kind loving people out there that could possibly translate these few Russian words written in Latin Alphabet form. Into English??? I would really appreciate it, if someone could ! Plus I would like to learn how to speak Russian, but am not so sure how to get started. Can anyone give me any starter points on say how hard it is , and would it be diffcult for an Native English speaker like myself. If someone could help me then I would be most greatful.

    Thank you!

    "This is the text" "Spasibo tebe.Ti horoshaja devuhka spokoinoi nochi.Poka."?? I would love to know what that says in English

    Спасибо тебе. ты хорошая девочка/девушка. Спокойной ночи. Пока.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    actually, the text in english was 'devuha' which, IS NOT a russian word, but quite obviously by the context means 'girl'. SO since the word girl was implied, but not specifically written, if Kwatts wants to say "Devushka, Devochka, or hell, even Devchonka... Then, i think it would be exeptable... Zhenya.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    The word "devuhka" is one "s" away from being "devushka."

    Wouldn't want to argue with what the man wrote.

    I could not tell whether devuha meant devushka or devochka.
    But it is closer to devushka. Anyway, does it make much of a difference?

    thank you, you good girl, good night.

    can Tbi(you) be used as often as you want, meaning no 1 time use of the word?

    Sir Krist, no, that is totally Wrong. Just read and believe what's been written above and you'll be ok.

    ты means 'you' and you can use it as many times as is necessary, just as you can in English. But probably repeats less in Russian because the verb conveys the "second person singular" information, which our verbs don't.
