In bulgarian we use ь in the middle of a sentence and pronounce it like a j so it would be a ьо jo

I enjoy your lessons. One thing I would like to point out is that in English we do have the equivalent of the 4th letter of the Ukrainian alphabet as in House Have Hat Het Hand . And of course there are many times when H is silent as in Honor Hour and so on. It is a bit softer than in Ukrainian as there is less air pressure used to speak English in general depending on the regional accent. So technically we don't have exactly that sound but it is close enough that if someone whose Mother tongue is English speaks Ukrainian and says the H sound, it would be perfectly understood. Cheers!

You’re using the wrong IPA symbol for И. It should be [ɨ]. [y] is for the “u” in French “tu.”

“Latinization of the Russian alphabet.” That group was informed by the ideas of Nikolay Yakovlev, a prominent linguist, and his ten theses resemble arguments now being made in Central Asia: “Any system is not only a technique of writing but a bearer of an ideology – an alphabet reflects in itself the ideology of the society and class which created it.” “The Russian civic alphabet in its history is an alphabet of autocratic oppression, missionary propaganda, and Great Russian national chauvinism” especially as applied to national minorities. “Even after its partial reform in 1917, the Russian alphabet continues to be the alphabet of the national-bourgeois Great Russian ideology.” “The Latin alphabet at present in fact has already grown into an international alphabet” and thus can serve as “one of the slogans of the cultural revolution.” “The Latinization of the Russian alphabet is a problem of the cultural construction of the USSR” and represents the introduction of “an alphabet of socialist society.” “The present-day Russian alphabet like other national ones (Jewish, Georgian, Armenia and so on) makes linguistic and cultural communication among the nationalities within the Union” and also between them and the international community. “The Russian alphabet is at present not only a form of writing which is ideologically alien to socialist construction but represents the chief obstacle to the task of Latinization both of other national alphabets … and on those constructed on the basis of Cyrillic – Belarusian, Ukrainian, Eastern Finnic and so on.” “Not only the graphic form of the Russian alphabet but also Russian orthography as a whole, even after the reforms retains the shortcomings of the pre-revolutionary class writing system.” “The Latin script to a greater degree than Russian civic script corresponds to the level of contemporary publishing technology and the physiology of reading and writing.” Shifting to it will thus bring many benefits, including not least of all a savings of 10 to 15 percent in publishing. “Technical and economic difficulties in the introduction of the Latin script thus should not be exaggerated.”
Jan Pio (1 year ago)
Olga thank you so much for this I too have tried the ap Duolingo and because there is hardly no voice to pronounce the words its more of a multi choice I feel that without understanding or knowing how to pronounce the words you will not learn or understand the language. Your videos are fantastic and I sincerely thank you for them they are going to be of immense help in my endeavor to learn the Ukrainian language. Thank you, thank you. 😊😊☺

Olga, I'm watching a lot of videos and reading many websites to get the pronunciation and names of the letters. Yours is the BEST of course. :) But, I'm confused by the variations. Like the "D" letter - you and others pronounce "dah." Yet other videos say "duh." You pronounce "T" as "teh", they pronounce it like "tuh." You pronounce "C" as "ess," they call it "suh." Can you tell me why there is a difference? Is it due to different dialects?
Wayne Vaughan (1 year ago)
Olga Reznikova I love it. I would like to get to know you
William Brown (1 year ago)
Olga Reznikova, thank you for replying! So, does that mean Ukrainian letters don't have standard "names" like they do in English - such as "Aay, Bee, Cee, Dee."
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
Actually you don't need to focus on it. It's more theoretical information) In reality for "D" you say just "d", not "dah or "duh"

Stefan Reichenberger (1 year ago)
Ukrainian phonology seems relatively straightforward. However, you said that there is no equivalent to the sound of the Ukrainian letter "Г" in English. To me, the letter "Г" sounds exactly like English or German "h".
Ålexander Palecha (13 days ago)
Really German H equivalent English H ?
Norsym (1 year ago)
Український г is a lot more breathy (voiced glottal fricative) than English h (voiceless glottal fricative). [ɦ] does not equal [h]

Privet Olga. I appeciate all the hard work that goes into your videos, thank you they're very useful. In this one, you are readiing the Ukrainian version of the Cyrillic alphabet? I have studied basic Russian including the Cyrillic alphabet and it seems you have additional letters in your video. Very interesting!
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
Yes, it's Ukrainian alphabet

Brandon Savage (1 year ago)
Hey Olga, I appreciate your videos and blogs, very helpful, very cool! I am still a little confused with Ь, could you give me an example with a couple of words? ones with Ь and without. Thanks for your time, again so helpful!
Norsym (1 year ago)
Brandon Savage ь, or м‘який символ softens the letter that comes before it Example Співають (ть = ť) Other letters that usually have м‘який символ in front of it are сь, нь, ль, дь, зь, рь, ць. These are all comparable to Polish and Czech letters ś, ń, ľ, ď, ź, ŕ(?), ć. It’s hard to write out sounds so if you find pronunciations for those non Cyrillic letters above, you’re good. There’s also good ipa charts where you can find all the sounds.

I think that should be large differences between the russian and ukranian alphabet. For example, the pronnunciation of this letter: г (ghe on russian - jhe on ukranian)
Zvonkylicious (5 months ago)
The big difference is between Bulgarian and Russian Щ in russian is SHCH and in bulgarian is SHT😂
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
it's not large difference, bt some letters are really different

Hello Olga I am a beginner in learning Ukrainian and in just few days I'll coming to Ukraine. Usually I Believe learning a language depending on day to day life observing for example a kid born in it native country finds it easy to learn it's native language because he or she is grown up by observing their parents, there surrounding and knowing or getting informed by what is the name of an object,an animal , a thing or expression is ,so could you help me in in the same way or the other by making video the name and pronunciation of those animal, things, object and expression . Like how a 3 or 4 year old kid is given a picture book and they read and learn kind-of-way Please.
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
hehe, yes, I can.. I am working on my language course now
Chelsea Tafoya (2 years ago)
This is a wonderful video! Perhaps showing the difference between the pronunciation of the soft sounds and hard sounds for different letters would be helpful. Keep up the great work! :)

I'm from Portugal, and we have many immigrants from Ukrayne. I',ve notice that they start speak portugueses very quickly, and now i know why: the Ukranian sound of the letters are very similar to portuguese. I think even the sound of Ukrainian words should be the most approximate in the world with the Portuguese. Good lesson. Congratulations
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
Thank you! Yes, letters are similar!
