    quick translation

    Can somebody translate the following into Russian please?
    Thanks in advance.

    This dictionary has all the words you need to know. If you can't find a word in this dictionary, then you don't need to know it.

    В этом словаре есть все слова, которые тебе нужно знать. Если ты не можешь найти (какое-то) слово в этом словаре, значит, тебе его знать не нужно.

    Well, I like Оля's way better because it does not have all those extra words in it!

    But I disagree with the the content of the sentence. I need to know every word! When I read Dostoevskiy, half the words there aren't in any dictionary!

    Actually, the sentence was supposed to be a joke. You are too serious kv

    How many pages are there in your Russian dictionary? Well, it could be true. Even though Dostoevsky's command of the language is thought of as reliable and absolutely correct, you should always bear in mind that Dostoevsky lived about two centuries ago. Try reading Dickens imagining that you could understand only that vocabulary which you use today.

    only 1200 pages in my dictionary... Well, there should be a dictionary for people who read Russian classics! That way we can understand things like червонец, желтый билет, манишка, etc.

    Anyone wants to volunteer to create one?

    ну, это электронная словарь Мы говорим о книжных (я знаю, что эти слова значат: они просто примеры из давнейших мучениях)
