    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    It is a word which is used to insult a woman, whatever for. It is most often applied to a wife who is constantly nagging her husband.

    Or just a malicious woman.

    Стерва is not necessarily married

    Why insult? Some women take that as a compliment
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Of course not. I was just thinking about in what circumstances a woman is likely to "стать стервой", if she isn't by nature. The first thing that springs to mind - marriage.

    СТЕРВА - труп околевшего животного, скота; падаль, мертвечина, дохлятина.
    Отсюда СТЕРВЯТНИК - питающийся трупами хищник.
    От СТЕРВЯТНИКА в попытке сконструировать женский род получаем обратно СТЕРВА - "нехороший человек"

    Мало ли что. Я же про живое употребление слова. Сейчас слово "стерва" с трупоедом имеет мало общего. Больше с мозго@бом

    Mordan asked how to translate the word. The best translation of "sterva" is "bitch". The word bitch is used in exactly the same context that we use sterva.

    Это может быть вовсе и не так! bitch -- сука, а это другое дело. Всё зависит от контекста.
