    Tuna

    I'm sitting here eating a can of tuna right, mmm...yummy.
    Well tuna is like my absolute FAVORITE food.
    How do you say tuna in Russian?

    It's so freaking good.

    So far today I have eaten two cans of tuna and all was well untill I read this thread. Now I am racking my brain trying to remember correct grammar in order to say "Two can's of tuna."
    Две банки тунеца. or is it meant to be genetive plural?

    Just no need to say 4 words, when you may say 3 words.

    Я люблю тунца!

    Or something...

    I'm gonna take a shower, and eat more tuna.
    I'm gonna burn a CD first, and make it an event.
    There's gonna be singing and dancing and...anyway.

    Tuna's yummy.

    In conversational Russian you don't ommit "консервная" in this or similar situation only if it's absolutely unclear from the context.
