    Parts of speech

    Я искал в мой словарь “Noun, adjective, etc.” и я нашёл...

    Noun - Имя Существительное
    Nouns - Имена Существительные????

    Adjective - Имя Прилагательное
    Adjectives - Имена Прилагательные????

    Can one just omit the имя?
    Is there a shorter way to say those?

    Verb - Глагол
    Adverb - Наречие

    Nominative - Именительный падеж

    Must one say падеж?

    Accusative - Винительный падеж
    Genitive - Родительный падеж
    Dative - Дательный падеж
    Prepositional (Locative) - Местный падеж
    Instrumental - Творительный падеж

    How does one transliterate Michelle?
    Мишель?
    If it is, then does it decline like a feminine noun ending in -ь?

    Спасибо

    You are right about transliteration, but it doesn't decline at all, like all foreign female proper names ending with a consonant sound.

    I didn't know that there was a preferred order. In what sense is this order 'correct'?

    I'd call it "a common order". I don't know how an order can be correct or not. There's a mnenomic rule to memorize that order (by first letters) - Иван Родил Девчонку, Велел Тащить Пеленку

    Probably just the order Russians are taught to recite the cases at school? Whenever I've asked Mrs Scotcher to explain a case ending she's always had to go through that list in order to double check that she hasn't lied to me.

    or a meringue?

    Why does alphabet goes in specific order? It is the order we learned it at school.

    Perfective aspect
    Future tense
    Conditional

    What does белочка mean?

    And in a song I think I heard this, but I think it's wrong...
    Законы просты
    нам всё-то пизды

    I have no idea what it means, but the song had a good rhythm.

    Thanks

    белочка is a diminutive for белка- it means squirrel
    Vrei să pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei
    Nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei
    Chipul tau si dragostea din tei

    lyrics

    This is in a song, but to me the last two lines make no sense... Is this some sort of idiom?

    Ведь трудно быть мальчиком, если ты девочка.
    Don't you see it's hard to be a boy, if you are a girl.

    Трудно быть девочкой, если ты мальчик.
    It's hard to be a girl, if you are a boy.

    А, а может я буду белочкой,
    But, but maybe I will be squirrel,

    А, а может ты будешь зайчиком?
    But, but maybe you'll be a hare?

    How would you say...
    Do you know a (telephone) where I can reach her?

    Thanks

    Настоящее время
    Прошедшее время
    Несовершенный вид
    (don't know)
    Прошедшее несовершенное время
    Совершенный вид
    Будущее время
    Условный, условие
    Сослагательное наклонение

    What does белочка mean?
    It also means "delirium tremens" in slang. But it's not your case.

    Законы просты
    нам всё-то пизды
    нам всё до п*зды(=c*nt)
    Laws are simple - we don't give a f@ck about anything

    No, it's not an idiom.

    How would you say...
    Do you know a (telephone) where I can reach her?
    Ты знаешь телефон по которому я могу её найти?
    Вы знаете номер по которому я могу ей позвонить?

    You can certainly leave out "ты/вы".

    excuse me

    Sorry everyone. Alexei, thanks for telling me what it means. Excuse me

    for writing such a word. I apologize for I had no idea what it meant. Does

    that sound really vulgar in Russian or not? Or does it just sound like

    something you hear everyday. I'm not very familiar with Russian

    conversation etiquette, so I hope someone can help me.

    Thanks...

    Yes, it's very rude. I think like "cu*t" in English.

    Or does it just sound like something you hear everyday.
    Look, who're you asking! LOL
