    Some Sentances

    Could someone please correct any errors in these? Thanks

    Мужчина без пирогов - мужчина ни без чего. - A man without pies is a man without anything
    Если думаешь что ты мёртвый, звони врачу. - If you think your dead, call a doctor.
    И жабе и коту нравится есть шоколад. - Both the toad and cat like to eat chocolate.
    Бысто! Ешь эту курицу ножом и вилкей! - Quick! Eat this chicken with a knife and fork!
    Дайте мне сыру и кваса пожалуйста. - Please give me some chease and some kvas.

    Ill give it a whirl:

    Мужчина без пирогов - мужчина ни без чего. - A man without pies is a man without anything
    Мужчина без пирогов - мужчина ни с чем. - A man without pies is a man with nothing.

    I think with nothing sounds a little better than without anything.

    Если думаешь что ты мёртвый, звони врачу. - If you think your dead, call a doctor.
    Если думаешь что ты мёртвый, позвони врачу. - If you think your dead, call a doctor.

    You need perfective here.

    И жабе и коту нравится есть шоколад. - Both the toad and cat like to eat chocolate.
    Looks good to me!

    Бысто! Ешь эту курицу ножом и вилкей! - Quick! Eat this chicken with a knife and fork!
    Быстро! Ешь эту курицу ножом и вилкой! - Quick! Eat this chicken with a knife and fork!

    Just a couple typos it looks like.

    Дайте мне сыру и кваса пожалуйста. - Please give me some chease and some kvas.
    Also looks good!

    Я интерестуюсь историей России. - I'm interested in the history of Russia.
    Я интересуюсь историей России. - I'm interested in the history of Russia.

    Besides that little typo in интересуюсь, everything looks good.

    "И жабе и коту нравится есть шоколад. - Both the A toad and A cat like to eat chocolate."

    That doesn't make much sense to me....

    Darobat's was correct in my opinion.

    Если думаешь что ты мёртвый, звони врачу.

    Actually this way is correct too, but then it sounds more like a general recommendation, as in "every time you think you're dead..."

    Darobat, you're a horrible speller. At first I thought only in Russian, but now I realize you're just flat hopeless. CHEASE?

    Мужчина без пирогов - мужчина ни без чего. - A man without pies is a man without anything
    Человек без пирогов - человек без ничего. (I'd say, человек без пирогов не человек)

    Darobat's was correct in my opinion.
    With singular countable nouns( a toad, a cat) one has to use articles. If you do not want to use articles, you can use plurals "Both the toads and cats like to eat chocolate."

    Well I too am naively English, and I've never heard such a rule. As far as I know. "Both the toad and the cat" is perfectly correct. There is one specific toad, and one specific cat who are doing something. It's fine.

    My book says that when using a preposition with double negatives, the double negative is broken into ни and что with the preposition in the middle. Is без not considered a preposition nor something?

    У меня несколко фраз.

    Куда ты ходил? На работу? - Where did you go? To work?
    Я не ем курицу, когда это голубая. - I don't eat chicken when it's blue.
    Не сказайте мне. Я занимаюсь этом скучной книгой. - Don't talk to me. I studying this boring book.
    Бчера мы с моим другом ездили в кино. - Last night my friend and I went to the movies.
    Моя тётя преподаёт английсий язык инострание люди. - My aunt teaches English to foreign people.
    Вся зима мне нравится сомтреть внутри телевизор. - Every winter I like to watch TV indoors.

    Oh, and is my signature correct?

    usually you give original first, then translation, you put it opposite order, that confuses me a little. But anyhow:

    correct
    Я не ем курицу, когда это голубая. - I don't eat chicken when it's blue.
    Я не ем курицу, когда(если) она голубая.

    Не сказайте мне. Я занимаюсь этом скучной книгой. - Don't talk to me. I studying this boring book.
    Не разговаривайте со мной. Я читаю эту скучную книгу (я изучаю эту скучную книгу/я занимаюсь по этой скучной книге).

    Бчера мы с моим другом ездили в кино. - Last night my friend and I went to the movies.
    Вчера (вечером) мы с другом ходили в кино.
    *в кино не ездят, а ходят. Употребление "моим" здесь необязательно.

    Моя тётя преподаёт английсий язык инострание люди. - My aunt teaches English to foreign people.
    Моя тетя преподает английский иностранцам.

    Вся зима мне нравится сомтреть внутри телевизор. - Every winter I like to watch TV indoors.
    Всю зиму я люблю смотреть телевизор дома.
    *"внутри" - обычно по русски употребляется "под крышей, в помещении, дома". В данном случае лучше всего сказать "дома".

    Thanks for the corrections

    I'm guessing from the last part, it's wrong? It's supposed to say "Look an elephant!"

    where "розовый" came from?
    and still does not make sense to me, did you mean "Look at elephant"?

    Probably because I ment to type "Look a pink elephant". I really should have looked at my signature before writing that.

    in these case the translation is correct. Whatever it means. Or was the original something like: Look! A pink elephant" or "Look, a pink elephant!"

    That makes more sense to me.

    yes you might very well be naively (sic) English lol!

    "Both the toad and the cat" is correct, but you said:

    "Both the toad and cat like to eat chocolate."

    Remember, on this forum there are Russians trying to dig out wisdom from our sentences, so it is important that we make sure we spell our posts correctly, so not to confuse our mentors

    The whole phrase is not very Russian, to start with. "ни без чего" is definitely wrong, I'm not sure what exact rule you mean, can you give some examples?

    Here are some examples of "Ни" + preposition + "что".

    Ни за что на свете
    Not for anything in the world.

    К чему всё это?
    What is all this for?
    Это ни к чему.
    This is for nothing.

    О чём вы говорите?
    What are you talking about?
    Я ни о чём не говорю.
    I am not talking about anything.

    "без ничего" (without anything) is a set expression.
    You cannot say "без чего" and thus you cannot say "ни без чего".

    I think that is cute.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    Well, there's no difference in using "ни" with single or double negatives, your examples show both of them.

    "Ни" is simply added to the interrogative construction:
    о чём? - ни о чём
    к чему? - ни к чему
    за что? ни за что

    итд

    To follow this rule, it must be indeed
    без чего? - ни без чего
    It's just sounds awkward, I don't know why. Yes, it must be because "без ничего" is the set expression.
    I CAN say "без чего" in some certain context,


    In double negatives it is followed by "не", that's correct.

    A little joke to train your Russian:
    Ревнивый муж спрашивает жену: Кто это тебя фотографировал в сауне почти без ничего? - Это Маринка из восьмого отдела. - КАКОЙ ещё Маринка?!!
