    Help translating a word that's not in my dictionary

    I received an email from a friend recently that was in half english and half russian typed on an english keyboard. For example, she wrote poka instead of пока. One word she wrote was zeluyu. I can't find it in my dictionary, so I'm guessing it's slang. What does it mean?

    целую / (i) kiss / the whole (fem. accusative case)
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!

    Ok, that's why I couldn't find it. I was looking for зелую not целую. Thanks!

    The Russians who learnt German often use z for ц in transliteration.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Sometimes people would use it for 'ж' and y for 'у'. I remember a girl once wrote on our school's Russian club forum 'ya shozy s yma'. And I'm like "что такое "шозы"? Shoes?"

    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    Транслит must die. I'd ban everyone using it over the Internet.

    Почему бы им не выпить йаду? As an option.

    God granted me the serenity to accept the things
    I cannot change
    Courage to change the things I can
    And wisdom to know the difference
