    Plural or singular?

    "два островА" или "два Острова"?

    Поскольку надо сказать "два интересных острова" , я думаю , что первый вариант будет правилен, но я не уверен... Также, слова женского рода склоняются в множественном числе в таких сучаях, к примеру "два девушки", но как насчет слов мужского рода?

    Ах, как явствует из этого, я очень задачен.

    sg
    рукА
    рукИ
    рукЕ
    рУку
    рукОй
    о рукЕ

    pl
    рУки да, точно
    рук
    рукАм
    рУки
    рукАми
    о рукАх
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Две is followed by genitive singular, and two-syllabled feminine words with end stress "a" only move stress in the accusative singular and nominative plural (and thus, for inaniminate nouns also in the accusative plural), if anywhere.

    Even though I responded to your post, I think this was addressed to basurero, probably...

    Проверочное слово для рук - Харуки Муруками! :P

    basurero, Russian is often as curious and unexplainable for me as for any foreigner.
    I know many people who follow such a habbit (and I do not mean so called аффтарский слэнг) like using words in a funny and clumsy manner. It's usually a kind of sublanguage which has been used in any family or other little society, just any society. Sometimes in writing and pronouncing the words the wrong way we bring new colors to our thoughts. The manner we use our languages is unique.
    I am happy when I discuss with my cousins or my uncles what word is closer to the Truth - идя or ходя in the most serious tone. The Russian language is very rich but one can make it more rich, playing with words and mixing their parts in the most funny way. Like in Lewis Carroll's Alice's books. So I wondered sincerely!



    Thak you for corrections basurero!
    Я так думаю.
