    Yes, Ya tebya liubliu means "I love you" it is informal.

    I've always said "Я люблю тебя", not "Я тебя люблю"... Is the latter more correct or are they essentially the same?

    "Я люблю тебя"
    I love you/ I love you

    "Я тебя люблю"
    I love you

    But essentially the same

    I'm not sure of it. To me both written variants don't make any difference. It all depends on the intonation.

    My mama always says to me "Я тебя люблю" much more than "Я люблю тебя" Perhaps it is your own preferance.

    Should be other way around, nicht wahr?

    My russian grammar teacher told us to say all the important stuff in the beginning of the sentence, and the less important at the end. She explained that Russians don't usually listen to the whole sentence (exaggeration of course). But she could be wrong, of course. Russian people may also be uncuncious on their choise of word order, depending on habit etc....

    Formally, 'new' information comes last in a sentence, and 'given' information (understood, or assumed to be understood) comes at the beginning.

    So in the sentence 'Я тебя люблю', Я and тебя are both 'given/understood' information, what's important is the 'new' information; 'люблю'.

    'Я люблю тебя', on the other hand, answers the question 'кого ты любишь?'

    I say 'formally', because it's possible to swap those around for emotive effect, especially in spoken Russian.

    But, just to contradict that last sentence (given the subject), this doesn't normally appear to be one of those occassions, since I too have heard 'Я тебя люблю' far more often than 'Я люблю тебя'. In fact, I've even received a gently sarcastic comment from Mrs Scotcher whenever I've used the latter.

    Yes, that's important for written Russian.

    On Alta-Visa

    On alta-vista, it comes back as:

    Я люблю вас.

    Is this in anyway correct?

    Another site: http://www.freetranslation.com/ also has this translation.

    Absolutely, but this means you are not on close familiar terms with the lady. Very formal. This way a nobleman confessed his love to a noblewoman.
