    numerical plural

    1. I sent you two short documents - Я отправил тебе два кратких документа
    1.a. I sent you five short documents - Я отправил тебе пять краткие документы
    2. I sent you two good newspapers - Я отправил тебе две хорошие газеты (газеты -> singular genetive)
    2.a. I sent you five good newspapers - Я отправил тебе пять хорошие газеты (газеты -> plural nominative)

    Correct товарищи?
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    1.a кратких документов
    2.a хороших газет.

    The rest is sound.
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    I would never say like that, краткий is not 100% equal to короткий, if you are not sure - use the main word, КОРОТКИЙ, which is commonly used.


    Короткий.
    Я отправил тебе два коротких документа - correct.
    Документ (paper) - material \ formal thing, short paper = just several pages or less than a page.
    Also,
    -короткий день
    -короткая дорога
    -короткий путь
    -короткая юбка
    -короткая линейка
    -короткий нож
    -короткий забор
    -короткий текст
    -короткая реклама
    -короткая речь
    -короткое (недолгое) счастье
    -короткое приключение

    etc etc

    Краткий: https://ru.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D0%B...BA%D0%B8%D0%B9
    Old & poetical, used 10-times more rarely. Examples are:

    -Краткость - сестра таланта (popular saying).
    -У нас получился краткий диалог = we chatted a little bit = not a material, but something virtual
    -Краткое содержание романа (short plot of a novel, no matter how many pages it is, the idea is that it is much shorter than the original).

    Краткий - concise, а кроме того, греки опять подсобили со словечком "лаконичный"
