      Same with Ukrainian! I began learning Russian, then put it down for a while because of depression. When I went to pick it up again *things*... had happened. So, I decided to pick back up where I left off, but this time learning Ukrainian, instead. The keyboard is different, but the alphabets are very, very close. It takes me soo long to type in Ukrainian versus Russian. Hunt-and-peck city. I actually prefer Ukrainian; it feels easier to learn. Less words, and they get a lot of mileage from one word. Sentences can be 2 words long, but mean so much. "Where is Dad" vs "Де тато?"

    Being russian and speaking Russian language respectively, I admire your job at explanation of our phonetics. Good job, you made it look kinda easy!)
    Also I’d like to add, that letter «Щ» should not be pronounced as «sht». Actually it’s similar to «Ш», but softened at the end, so it’s more of a «sh’». It’s crucial to mention because otherwise people can be struggled by hearing «shtuka» (thing, piece or just something undefined) from the foreigner when he is speaking of a pike fish (щука).
    Best wishes and keep it up 👍

      This is super helpful. I've grown up with Ukrainian and Russian but lost a lot of my accent growing up in the US, so I have to relearn pronunciation.
      It wasn't until recently I learned there's soft and hard vowels and consonants.
      I've always procounce щ as sht but a lot of the time when I listen to my parents, they don't pronounce it quite like in English spelling. Looking at it as a palatalised (soft) vowel really opens my ears to the sound (and tells me what to do with my tongue).

As far as the cyrillic Alphabet goes, it't not *that* far off the latin alphabet so it's easy enough to learn and it really makes a great deal of sense for those slavic languages I must say. Arabic tough is for us European quite hard to figure out, It's basically completely different. Tough I suppose it gets the Job done as well.
      Languages that use symbols for words tough, those are *bad*. I guess the chinese language is here to stay, but it's still a let's say "hostile" system to learn and remember. Tough, if you want to, you can still make it worse, ask the Japanese, lol. They are kinda insane... they borrowed a shitton of letters from China, they created their own symbols as well and because that's clearly not enough, they've also created more letters, that represent sounds instead of words. It's complete Madness, lol.

    Good video! My brother studied languages at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center in California. The pace of study was intense. Students had to master the language course in 36-64 weeks. Psychologically it was very difficult, but fortunately he was helped by Yuriy Ivantsiv's book "Polyglot Notes. Practical tips for learning foreign languages”. The book " Polyglot Notes" became a desk book for my brother, because it has answers to all the problems that any student of a foreign language has to face. Thanks to the author of the channel for this interesting video! Good luck to everyone who studies a foreign language and wants to realize their full potential!

    You had mentioned the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet, for anyone who is interested in learning Serbian, Serbia uses to alphabets, the Cyrillic alphabet and the Latin, but be warned, their Latin alphabet is pronounced way differently than how we pronounce the Latin alphabet. I know this because when I started learning Russian I started exploring other Slavic languages.
    Also, if you want to get really good at learning the alphabet, don't use digital flashcards, make your own flashcards because the more you write the alphabet yourself the better you're going to be with it and the easier it's going to be for you to remember it.
    I will also mention that it is very helpful to watch movies in the language that you are trying to learn, and listen to songs in the language you are trying to learn and find the lyrics to that song in English and in their native language. Trust me, it really helps. When you hear somebody singing in that language and hear how they pronounce those words and the accents they have on these words it helps you to understand the words better when you hear people speaking them.

      If you paid attention you'll notice that all of these alphabets have some different pronunciations of some letters like for example:
      "И" in Ukrainian is pronounced as the Russian/Belarusian "Ы" while in Bulgarian as "ЪЙ" and "I" in Ukrainian is pronounced as "И" which is in every Slavic language except Ukrainian and Belarusian where "И" is pronounced as "Ы" but this letter is not in the Belarusian alphabet.
      "Щ" in Ukrainian is pronounced as "ШЧ," while in Bulgarian as "ШТ" and in Russian as soft "Ш" like "ШЬ."
      "Г" in Ukrainian and Belarusian is pronounced as softer "Х". In Ukrainian "Ґ" is "Г" which is rarely used in Ukrainian, while in Belarusian there is not even a "Г" sound there - just a soft "Х" sound like Ukrainian.
      "Ї" is only represented in Ukrainian as the equivalent of the Bulgarian and Russian "ИИ/ИЙ" or the Serbian "JИ" sound.
      Belarusian Cyrillic also it have a unique letter "Ў" (which is just like J or Й this is just "У" short).
      Every Cyrillic alphabet have some unique letters (except maybe Bulgarian and Russian alphabet).

    The Cyrillic "Д" comes from the Greek "Δ" and has been modified for typographic fonts to look consistent with other letters in a line of text..
    If you write the letter "Д" by hand as a Greek delta, everyone will understand what you wrote. The same applies to the letter "Л", you can write the Greek lambda (Λ).
    Λето - Leto - Summer
    Δом - Dom - House
    The letter "Ц" is taken from the Hebrew alphabet "צ" (tsadi), as well as the letter "Ш" of the Hebrew "ש" (shin)

      If you are curious why some letters look similar:
      • Some were borrowed from Greek, which may also be used in Latin alphabet
      • Some evolved over time and ended up looking similar
      • when Cyrillic was moved on typewriter for the first time, the Russian tsar at the time was a western-phile and used Latin letters to transcribe some Cyrillic letters, and that became the modern print standard, while cursive remained unphased.

    This is so strange to see as someone who was taught cyrillic first 😂. I always read B as V, C as S, X as H etc. In fact, I always saw N as a backwards И and sometimes when I have to write N I have to imagine И in my head and then flip it lol. Not to mention how much growing up with the alphabet where every letter is pronounced the same regardless of its placement in the word affects the way you see and hear every other language. Linguistics affect the way we think and that's super interesting

    I'm already learning Japanese (日本語 [にほんご])which learning the alphabet, hiragana (ひらがな)has been pretty simple because every symbol represents one consonant followed by a vowel except for a - あ, e - え, i - い, o - お, u - う, and n - ん. I've seen other alphabets that look more difficult because of how words are pronounced. The hardest part of Japanese so far has been learning the Kanji. I might learn a cyrillic language next. The hardest part would probably be trying not to mix up the pronunciation with letters that look similar.

    Спасибо! I have always wanted to learn Russian but the interference of Latin alphabets has created confusion for me such as the C=s, H=i, P=r etc. I think it would be probably be a lot easier for someone who does not know the Latin alphabet to begin with, conversely, I would imagine similar experience could be drawn for someone who have grown up with Cyrillic and who are trying to learn Latin alphabet then proceeding on to learn English, French, Spanish etc. However, with your simple explanation, I find it easier now to tackle this challenge and overcoming the confusion.
    Great work! Much appreciated.
    BTW, your phonetic example above, shouldn't "Germany" be without the cyrillic "D" in front of the word? Or am I missing something?

      Devoicing in Russian works exactly in the same way as in Dutch. Only: we write z as s, and v as f at the end of the word, exept for foreign names.
      There is almost no vowel reduction, only in personal and possessive pronouns when unstressed.
      There is almost no iotation in Dutch. At least not in the way it works in Russian.

    A few additional notes from a native Bulgarian:
    About Ж and the snowflake example - actually snowflake is снежинка in Bulgarian, so it actually contains the letter Ж :)
    ь is "er maluk" because it could never be at the beginning of the words, therefore no Capital version, thus the "maluk" = small letter;
    Ъ, ъ is a fully qualified vow in BG :) rarely at the beginning - ъгъл = angle.

      He thought you the Bulgarian variant. The Russian has small differences like E is YE or (ЙЕ) in Bulgarian, and Э is the Bulgarian and the rest of the Slavic languages - E.
      O (depending when it is unstressed becomes A in Russian, while in Bulgarian and every other Slavic language it is always O). And finally Щ (can be pronounced depending on which alphabet - Bulgarian (ШТ), Ukrainian (ШЧ but sometimes like Russian - ШЬ). Russian has 2 letters more and 1 of them used to be in Bulgarian but not anymore is the letter Ы (which in Bulgarian now is ЪЙ) and Ё which is equivalent of the Bulgarian ЙО/ЬО.
      Funny that E in Russian can be pronounced as E like the rest Slavic languages when it is next to Ж, Ш, Ц. Same goes for И - it becomes like the Ukrainian И or the Russian Ы

    Don't know about the other slavic languages, but speaking of Russian cytillic, there's differences. E = Ye, Э = E, 4 = Четыре, Щ is not Sht, it's something close to S+ch (sch), ъ - doest' really sound like you've mentioned in your example. ъ - makes vocal sound hard, even after the consonant, for example : обЪявление sounds like - Obyavlenie, with out "ъ", it will sound softer, but impossible to discribe it in english. Because "я" after a consonant doesn't sound like "ya", it sounds like Finnish vocal "Ä" ( something close to "ae"). "Ай эм нот фром Бaлгэрия", "Ай вонт ту лёрн Балгэриан", "Ай эм э юнивёсити стьюдэнт".. Guess you was mentioned the Bulgarian cyrillic, but as you can see, we still have differences. All I want to say is, if you will learn the Bulgarian way, you won't speak Russian cyrillic correctly.

      @SX Faceoff Well, as you know that A, Б, В, Д, Ж, З, К, Л, М, Н, О, П, Р, С, Т, У, Ф, Х, Ц, Ч, Ш exist in every Cyrillic script so pretty much more than 3/4th of the letters is pronounced the same in all Cyrillic versions. You could say about the Latin alphabets too, other languages have unique letters too and different pronuncation, but they share 1 thing in common just like the Cyrillic scripts.
      Also seems you are Russian who lives in Finland, right?
      But I find it funny how Russian is the only taught Slavic language in Finland, even though as I know Finns and Russians don't have the best relations, especially right now when Putin threat you and the Swedes if you join NATO.

      @RUBG X BGRU Well, you know these languages and this is why it doesn't matter for you. But think of a person, who will read the discription of this video. He/she will watch it and learn it. Will believe that he/she now can read in all languages that are listed in discription as they are "same". Which won't be true. Because with this lesson you learn Bulgarian way only. I have already said that. If you are writing in discription about all of these languages, then (in my opinion) you have to explain how to read in all of these languages. Otherwise discription lies and those who are learning from it, do learn it incorrectly right at the begining. I know, that there isn't big a difference, but still is. That's my point. Because teaching incorrectly will lead you to speak it incorrectly. For example in Finland l've heard that they teach Finns, that Russian alphabet has 5 "S" letters but they just writes differently (С, Ц, Ч, Ш, Щ). It's hard for them to sound them right, so they just replace them with "S" which is completly wrong. Yes it is understandable when they speak it, but it's still wrong. In my opinion, if you learn something, doesn't matter, if it is a language, a flying school or medicine.. you need to be teached right. If you have other vision of it, it's fine, l am not going to argue with it. As it is your opinion, but this is mine. That's it.

    I've only just come across this video - but when I was studying the Russian language at university some years ago - we were always taught that the Russian cyrillic alphabet letter «Щ» was pronounced similarly to the English language combination of sounds "sh"+"ch" as in "fresh cheese", rather than the "sh"+"t" sounds you have suggested in your above video. And in reality I think the "sh+ch" combination is closer to the actual sound in the Russian language.
    But something that was said in the above video, made me think the teacher is referring more to the Bulgarian form of the cyrillic alphabet than the Russian form - so perhaps he was describing the way it is pronounced in the Bulgarian language, rather than the Russian language.

      Bulgaria is the birthplace of the Cyrillic and just because Russian is the most spoken one doesn't mean everything is Russian.
      Щ exists in 3 alphabets and depending on which one it can be pronounced in 3 ways. In Bulgarian it is always "ШТ" like in Old Church Slavonic "ШТА," in Ukrainian it is mostly "ШЧ" but sometimes like Russian "ШЬ."
      The Cyrillic alphabet is 75% the same in all countries/languages that use it, except for minor changes in some letters and sounds but the Latin alphabet is the same, except there are more differences than the Cyrillic one.

      The only difference is in Bulgarian it is always used with O. While in other Slavic languages such as Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian it is used after consonants and before "O" is not nessesary like in Bulgarian, to soften them so here is not different, except only for YO is used. It serves the same function as the Russian/Belarusian letter - "Ё"
      For example - автомобил (automobile) in Russian will be автомобиль (The L in the end in Russian will be slightly softer than Bulgarian, despite if you have 2 "O" in Russian and 1 that is unstressed will become "A" while in Bulgarian it is always "O" no matter what just like every Slavic language, except Russian.)

    Cool video. Good explanation for beginners. I would just like to give a hint that the letter O without stress is pronounced like A your example: "Ви́ктор" - [Ви́ктар] the stress falls on the first syllable the second syllable without stress so the letter O will be pronounced as A. Another example is the word "молоко́" - [малако́] first two syllables are unstressed, so both [O] will be pronounced like [A], but the third [О] is pronounced as O because the stress falls on the last syllable. But don't worry, if you pronounce all O as O, it is acceptable. Great job Golyplot.

Ukrainian has "G" sound but it is written as "Ґ" but it is rare to see this letter either way. Czech & Slovak also replace "G" with "H" even though they don't use the Cyrillic alphabet.
      And "И" in all Cyrillic Slavic languages is pronounced as "I" with exception of Ukrainian & Belarusian. Belarusian use "I" for "И" and "Ы" for the Ukrainian "И" letter because they don't have it. Ukrainian alphabet is pretty much "inverted" Bulgarian/Russian alphabet, while Belarusian alphabet is a hybrid between Bulgarian/Russian and Ukrainian.

    The letter "Щ" only appears in the Russian, Ukrainian and Bulgarian alphabets (if we count Slavic ones). The pronunciation is different in each of them. In Bulgarian it is pronounced as "Sh+T", just like in this video, in Ukrainian it is more like Sh+Ch, and in Russian it is just a softened Sh, just like in the word "She", just the sound is a bit stronger.

      @Heinrich Faust Well, I'm Bulgarian (but I'm not this guy from the video as you assumed lmao). And in Macedonian there is no Щ at all it is ШТ. But in Bulgarian you'll never see this combination except for 1 word - "пустошта" (the wasterland) and just "пустош" means (wasteland).
      Also "ШЧ" exist in Bulgarian too but it not very common to spot. 1 word that comes in my mind is "кошче" which means "basket" or "trash can"
      Funny how some people sometimes pronounce "Щ" like regular "Ш" like "ще" sometimes you may spot it as "ше" or for example at the word "общност" the T-s are mostly not pronounced in everyday speech. So "общност" will be more likely "обшнос" just like at the word "педераст" - the last T is not pronounced, as well in the word "отвертка" (the 2nd T is not pronounced).

      @HeroManNick132 I am neither Russian nor Ukrainian, just somebody who does their homework before posting or sharing anything. In fact in eastern Slavic languages at first it was common to pronounce it as sh+ch, this pronunciation gradually was changed in Russian (but kept in Ukrainian) since about 19 century. Of course, there are still some Russian dialects, especially in the South, that keeps it same or similar as in Ukrainian. Interestingly, in Lithuania the official transliteration of letter Щ is based on Ukrainian, even for words translated from Russian, i.e. "šč" (sh+ch). Not sure if anyone else uses Bulgarian variation, maybe Macedonians.

My way to remember letters was to associate the letters with famous words, for example N as in Net, H as in Haha!, S as in SSSR etc. But there were many letters I struggled to remember, to which you gave me easy ways to remember it, thanks a lot!

      @Нехай подолає триєдиний народ розкладання єдності! As Bulgarian Russian always had weird pronuncation like how "что" is pronounced the same as the Bulgarian "що" or how when "O" is unstressed is pronounced like A. But it is weird how "го" is pronounced like "во" when in Bulgarian it always pronounced as "Г"

      @HeroManNick132 "go" is read as "vo" or "vah" at the end of words (more often adjectives).
      Because earlier "g" was read as a fricative (like a voiced version of "h"), then it disappeared at the end of words ("ogho" became "oo"), and then there was a "w", which later turned into "v".

      Keep in mind that even if the Russian & Bulgarian script are 99% the same, there are some differences like "e" in Russian is "йе/ье" and "e" in Bulgarian is Russian "э" or with "щ" how in Russian is "шь" but in Bulgarian is "шт" and Ukrainian "шч." Also "ъ" doesn't have a sound in Russian but in Bulgarian has. Just small differences even though everything is almost the same. But Russians sometimes convert the "г" sound into a "в" sound like in "чего, сегодня" which makes it confusing, while in Bulgarian "г" is always "г" except at the end where is voiceless became a "к" sound like with the word "саркофаг."

      @HeroManNick132 da, Vuk Karadzic je izbacio neka slova i dodao nova. Kod nas ne postoje "meki znakovi" i slova koja se pisu ali se ne citaju. Preuzeo je pravilo Johanna Christopha Adelunga - "pisi kao sto govoris, citaj kako je napisano".
      In English - Indeed, Vuk Karadzic reformed the (written) language by ditching some letters but he add some new ones. Serbian Cyrillic today doesn't include the letters that used to be written but were not pronounced. He adopted the system from the German philologist Johann Christoph Adelung - "Write as you speak and read as it is written".
      Note: this reform is still a point of contention in Serbia. While some say it perfected the language, others think the language lost a lot of its richness.

      Ти нали знаеш, че граничиш със славянскоговорящи народи, освен с унгарците и румънците на север и на югозапад с албанците. Така, че не е изненада защо. Но разбира се имаме разлика в кирилиците.

    Some Cyrillic languages use the alphabet differently than others. For instance, Г sounds like “g” in languages like Bulgarian and Belarusian but in Ukrainian it makes the “h” sound

    • HeroManNick132
      HeroManNick132 9 ай бұрын +1

      No, Г sound in Bulgarian is G like Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovenian, Polish, Macedonian... The Г being a H sound is only in Ukrainian, Belarusian and Czech, and Slovak... In some Russian dialects more to the south they have this Г changing to H but in standard Russian is not. Ukrainian has G as well but it is barely used - it is written as Ґ but Belarusian doesn't have G at all and only H.

      Всё же формальный язык нуждается в формализации, они будут утверждать что письменный язык - исторический, он изначальный и самый правильный и в итоге письменность станет как русском "как проверяешь с помощью ударения, так и пишешь".

      Just be careful because in some Cyrillic alphabeths there are some differences like:
      "Е" in Bulgarian is pronounced just like the Serbian, Macedonian, Ukrainian "E," while in Belarusian/Russian it is like "YE" pronounced.
      "Щ" has different pronunciations through the Cyrillic. In Bulgarian is "ШТ" in Ukrainian "ШЧ" and in Russian like softer "Ш" - "ШЬ."
      "И" in Ukrainian is like the Russian, Belarusian "Ы" sound, while "I" is "И" like every Cyrillic alphabet except the Ukrainian and the Kazakh one.
      Just to keep in mind. :)
