    Names

    How would one translate, in a name, the word, Junior. In the Давид where is the accent? What is the russian name for Dorothy? Thanks

    Junior - младший
    examples: George Bush Junior - Джордж Буш младший.
    -I met Mr Brown last night
    -Which one? Senior or Junior?

    -Я вчера вечером встретил мистера Брауна?
    -Какого? Старшего или младшего?

    In "Давид" the accent is on the second syllable.

    Dorothy - Дороти

    Friendy:
    Do you speak Russian fluently? If so, how long have you been speaking English? I am a native Russian speaker, but I came here when i was young and have fogotten a lot, but now I am relearning Russian. Can you translate some words for me? (I am from Ukraine, but I never knew Ukrainian. I don't know if I would want to learn it either)
    Cut(Like a scrape):
    I am going to the orphanage:
    Can I come to visit you?:
    He has found his mom:
    (Like contacted, not lossed and then found like contacted over a long period of time)
    Thank you for your help, I appreciate it.

    ***Sorry to interrupt this post with these few questions, I just needed some help****

    It depends on the origin of the name If 'David' is meant to be English, the name is transliterated as 'Дэвид' with the stress on the first syllable ('э'). If it is Jewish, it is 'Давид'.

    I started it in the second grade but I'm not sure when I actually started to speak it, in the 5th grade maybe. And you?

    Cut(Like a scrape): порез, царапина (if you meant a noun)

    I am going to the orphanage:
    Я иду(or еду) в приют (or детский дом). (If you are somewhere outside the orphanage and intend to go there)
    or
    Меня отправляют в приют. (if you are a child and you are sent to an orphanage in oder to live there)

    Can I come to visit you?:
    Можно прийти к тебе в гости?
    or
    Можно тебя навестить?
