    Re: Discussing the word "сказать" (to say, speak)

    Is there really near phrase in English to 'сказать не впопад'
    "сказанный", "сказано - сделано!", is related, or excluded as different part of speach?
    Idioms, proverbs:
    "сказал - как отрезал"
    "сказанного не воротишь"
    "вот и весь сказ"
    "скажешь тоже!"
    nouns:
    "сказания" - made
    ====================================
    Мне вот интересно: когда учат русский язык, разбивают слова на морфемы или нет?

    Thanks for these most useful idioms! More for the collection! The near equivalent English version of 'сказать не впопад' I would go for 'beat about the bush', 'вот тебе и весь сказ'='That's the long and the short of it' and 'слазано - сделано' almost literally translates as 'no sooner said than done'. Whereas 'сделанного не воротишь' comes out as 'what's done can't be undone', I can't seem to find the сказанного version. Research continues!
