    lil question

    Hi all.I tried to re-make up this sentence with changing the words of the sentence.and i'm not sure if it still keeps the meaning and grammatically correct Are all these below means same?

    I'd play the violin whole the night.


    Я играл бы на сприке весь вечер.

    Я бы играл на сприке вес вечер.

    Играл бы я на сприке весь бечер.

    На сприке бы весь бечер играл я.

    Весь вечер бы на сприке играл я.



    tnx in advance

    Before getting onto the Russian:

    "I'd play the violin for the whole night"

    or

    "I'd play the violin all night long"

    (1) and (2) are OK, (3) is grammatical but a bit unnatural, (4) and (5) are wrong imo. Fix the spelling mistakes too, you have a lot of them.
    I suspect "by" should either immediately precede or immediately follow the verb.

    mustn't it be 'скрипка'? or is it really an instrument called 'сприк'??

    To my mind all the variants are OK from the point of grammar. But only (1) and (2) can be used in the spoken language. As for the others, they can be used, for example, in the verse. In the oral spech they'll sound awkward a bit, but still correct.
    I would be grateful if you would correct my mistakes, since I would like my English to sound as natural as possible.

    Вероятно, из песни "Жена моя - бандура"
