    Does it have the same ending structures with Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative, Ablative, Vocative (or similar names, idk) as well?

    It depends. What's an Ablative case? I don't recall hearing about that in Russian.

    Here's a rough rundown of Russian cases:

    Ablative is basically prepositional phrases in English and is utilized in some other language mechanics that I can't recall at this very moment.

    Here's what the Latin structure looks like (with its 5 declension each denoting a specific gender or two specific genders), I'll be definitely checking out those cases.

    It might be a good idea to find some movies or tv series in Russian with English subtitles, and get a feel for the language, worry about grammar and writing later.

    Since I haven't noticed any active Russian members around here:

    For someone who doesn't speak Russian (like me), Russian sounds like a lot of short meaningless grunting sounds made while beating the chest.

    Me Russian. Grrr Grr..

    Oh shit. Didn't know you were Russian.

    I wonder what is it that you wrote in Russian? Nice to meet you by the way dear Daenera.

    Hmm.. now that I think of it there is another mildly active Russian (ENFP I think) here.

    Hey! Nice to meet you too.

    Nope. I'm not Russian, I'm Macedonian, but there is some similarity between the two languages so I partially understand what he writes, I actually wrote: I want to learn Russian too.

    I'm having a hard time with the word (and sorry if I spell it wrong, and using the english alphabet, as I haven't gotten a full grasp of the russian one)

    heres what I know of the russian
    alphabet
    b-v
    д-d
    е-ye
    ж-zh

    so only four letters
    vwe panamyeche
    "you understand" is what i'm trying to say, but I'm having a really hard time saying it, like my mouth stumbles

    I can hear it, and mentally I know how to say it-but physically I can't. I have this same problem with english. So I can't say some words and I was in speech therapy as a kid, because of it.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
