    1. We don't like these "what's the difference between Russian and Belarussian and Ukrainian" threads
    2. What do you mean by inflective? And to which language are you referring.


    Well.

    Belarussian is a slavic language spoken by some people in Belarus'.
    Russian is a slavic language spoken by people in Russia and the CIS.

    That's the difference.

    The royal 'we' again?

    Read this intersting article in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belarusian_language

    "In terms of lexicon, Belarusian is most closely related to Ukrainian, then to Polish, and only then to Russian."

    Sorry Taty,
    I understand now, thankyou

    inflective I was refering to Russian as in you get a root word and several differnt ways (mas) (Fem) and you have I,you,him,her,they,we,future,past,present, for most words making this very difficult.

    please dont get me wrong, I dont mean to offend

    You have offended me, my family, and the honor of my dogs. The penalty is death or a good flaming on this board.

    The bit of Belarussian I've seen is considerably different than Russian. Unless you have some keen interest in Belarus, you're much better off with Russian, as it's much more practical. Keep in mind that the president of Belarus is notorious for speaking horrid Belarussian (Putin's Tatar is actually probably better) -- Russian will serve you well there as well as much of the former USSR.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Hey Byelorussian is very close to Russian.
    Byelorussian is a curious language, but there's little benefit in studying it.
    Life is great and so are you
