    Help a beginner with this word? :)

    I came across the word канчатковы. It seems related to the word конец and I think it means something like "finished or final" but I'm a beginner and I'm guessing. I need help understanding the literal translation and how the word is formed. Thanks

    I have no idea what does this word mean. Maybe it is heavily misspelled?

    Edit: I googled it out! This word is in Belorussian and it means "final", "ultimate". Yes, it is related to word "конец" and keep in mind that Belorussian language has very different (from Russian) spelling system.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Looks like канчатковы is a family name(surname). Also I it-ogo said before Канчатковы in Belorussian means final, finished, last, completted. Канчат(root)ов(suffix)ы(end).

    "канчатковы" это "окончательный" по-русски. И да, это белорусское слово.
    "канчатковы" is "окончательный" in Russian and "final/complete" in English. Yes, it is Belarussian word
