I have a questions: does Ukraine used č,ž,š?
GekeGTube (7 months ago)
Hi, yes, it has such sounds (or very similar ones) but they are written in Cyrillic letters: ч,ж,ш

Olga, thank you so much for all of your wonderful videos! My aunt Olga Halaburda created Ukrainian Power, which is essentially a Ukrainian Sesame Street. I've been attempting to learn the language of my heritage (I'm 80% Ukrainian) and when in doubt, I always turn to my two Olgas! Thanks again. :)

thank you!;-)

In English the names of the week are clues to our ancient pre-Christian past. Moon day Twee's day, Odin's day, Thor's day, Freya's day, Saturn, Sun. Is there anything like that here?
I am sure you will. Good luck!

+Тушти Лалита деви даси I hope I can find some English sources because it would be so much easier.
I dont know any sources in English. Like in England in ancient Rus (Ukraine) in order to spread Christianity the old gods were transformed to Christian saints for exemple Veles became St Vlasiy, Makosh - St Paraskeva etc. You guessed correctly that old children`s fairy tails saved the rest of pre-Christian religion.

+Тушти Лалита деви даси Thank you very much. In English the names were a surprise to me. Something to connect to the distant past. Numbers work. Is there a good source for ancient folklore for Ukraine? In England there are Saints who were given the personality of old gods to help win the people but the actual pre-Christian ideas are pieced together. Is it more or less the Greek God's, Thracians? Do children's stories have old religion in them?
+Drake Dorosh Ponedilok - pid-Nedileyu, after Sunday, Vivtorok - vtoroy, the second, Sereda - middle, Chetver - the forth, Pyatnitsya - the fifth, Subota - Sabbath (jewish word), Nedilya - ne delat, no doing or no working. So it means counting and includes influence of Christianity.

Question: do you pronunce the words how they're written in ukrainian? I mean, in russian sometimes "o" is pronunced like an  "a", not same for ukrainian?
MrGMS1221 MrGMS1221 (3 years ago)
+Olga Reznikova  Aha, understood. Well, i'm based on what i'm learning in university, i guess they are teaching me the standard pronunciation...
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
Yes, we pronounce always just like write, not like in Russian. By the way, Russian is different in different part of country. And "o" like "a" is used not in all country. 
Ben9 (3 years ago)
In Bulgarian: Понеделник, Вторник, Сряда, Четвъртък, Петък, Събота, Неделя. We use a lot of "ъ")))
godq3 (3 years ago)
Similar like in Polish. Same as with months. :)
Ruslan Nazarov (3 years ago)
Saturday. Различие отыскал лишь, что в российском языке пишется с 2-мя б (суббота), а этак норм! Произносится полностью также.
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
Если вы о субботе - то конечно.
Manfred Bismark (3 years ago)
Hello OLGA. (ANG-SLO): Monday-PONEDELJEK, Tuestday-TOREK, Wednesday-SREDA, Thursday-ČETRTEK, Friday-PETEK, Saturday-SOBOTA, Sunday-NEDELJA. So pronounce it so we write. Good work, girl. In the next clip, I will try write the UKRAINE ANTHEM - as I hear in the UKRAINE LANGUAGE. Bye. RUDI.
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
That is so sad, but it's ok :)
Manfred Bismark (3 years ago)
+Olga Reznikova Hello OLGA. Nice UKRAINE girl, with beautiful blue eyes.  The IDEA is great! But..I dont have the equipment. Sorry. Bye. Rudi.
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
Thank you so much! It's very similar! But it would be great if we can made video and you can read all this stuff with native pronunciation!  :) What can you say about this idea?
good lesson!!

thank you Olga :)
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
You are welcome ;)

Wow, it's almost the same as in Russian except for the word for "Sunday". And an interesting observation is that I find the ' used for the soft sign (correct me if I'm wrong) seems much easier to read than the horrendous ь sign in Russian. I still get confused between ъ, ь, and ы in printed texts sometimes, especially for unfamiliar words. Maybe I should have started learning Ukrainian first! :D .. 
FichDichInDemArsch (2 years ago)
+Тушти Лалита деви даси Ah yes, you're right. My mistake!
+FichDichInDemArsch This sign ` (apostroph) is applied for the hard sign "ъ" not for soft sound.
FichDichInDemArsch (3 years ago)
+MegaSexfanatic Very interesting! This needs more digging into. Also, do you think that the influence of Old Church Slavonic on Russian had anything to do with the shift in meaning?
MegaSexfanatic (3 years ago)
Yes of cause. What I mean that we, modern Russian people, in the ancient past have same name for 'sunday'.
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+MegaSexfanatic I think it was not old Russian, it was old slavic name which was transformed into 3 current slavic languages.
