Мало примеров, на самом деле различия меж украинским и русским немало, брать к примеру хотябы заглавие месяцев, а этак же такие слова будто цегла, паляниця, полуниця, рык, олывець, парасоля и т.д. ) белорусский еще поближе.

So basically, Ukrainians spent so many centuries under Polish land, that the Ukrainian language is barely its own language. The vocabulary is the same as Polish, questions start with Чи (czy). Ukrainian uses жодний (żodnyj) to describe "not any". It's closer to Polish except for Russian grammar

Now do the same thing between Polish and Ukrainian. You will be amazed! It's more similar than Russian!

Im from Austria so im a native german speaker, so basically the differneces between Russian and Ukrainian are like the differences between German and Dutch? Or more like German and Austrian? At least thats my impression
Pitur (3 months ago)
Ukrainian and belarusian are something like german between dutch or dutch between english, but more similar. I would say they are like spanish and portugese. Or like Polish and Slovak. Ukrainian language is like russian with lots of polish words but those polish words are spoken in russian way , not polish way. Being polish speaker when two ukrainians talk each other i can only understand single words, but i cant understand context of their talk. Simply don't know what they talk about. Even polish words in ukrainian language are spoken different more in eastern way. Ukrainian, russian and belarusian dont have nasal vovels and other unique features from polish , so its hard to understand what they say.

You are %100 right!
thats not transcription... its phoenetical writing...
no, it's not "maybe" haha for example when you put the word "patalok" it's phoenetical.... transcription would be like (потолок - potolok) because "о" doesnt become "a".... only when pronouncing... but never when writing.... --- next time, try to use both or be more specific)))))))) like: Русский - потолок Transcription - potolok Pronounciation - pata'LOK --- best wishes, love ur videos)) фортуна

Cool. It seems to me like some Ukrainian words differ from Russian in a way that resembles the Iotacism between Ancient Greek and Modern Greek, where vowels shifted to 'i'. I know that parts of the Black Sea had Greek colonies, I wonder if there was some influence.

Украинский сохранил некие более архаичные формы (типа звательного падежа), однако в целом он похож на древнерусский либо старославянский еще меньше, чем российский, украинский больше даже на польский похож (попросту я изучал древнейшие языки будто один)

Nevertheless i can't understand what two ukrainians and russians talk about , i can only catch single words , but don't know the context, just don't know believe me. Sometims cant even understand a single word.

Basti Kolaski I doubt 90% unless you lived in Ukraine. It's more like 65-70% for Russian-speakers. Ukrainians, however, who grew up in the villages never speaking Russian, they CAN understand 90% of Russian
Isobel Campbell (1 year ago)
daisyblossom3 most of the people who think this have only ever heard parts of both language, or rather none at all. So if you think sound-wise rather than about the actual words, the pronunciation of quite a substantial amount is pronounced very similarly.

Если хоть малость познакомиться с происхождением тех либо других слов либо раздобыть старенькые дореволюционные словари со всеми архаизмами и иными словами, которые из российского языка вытрясли молодчики-реформаторы, вы будете весьма очень удивлены, если не потрясены. Зная старенькый российский стиль, можно просто осознавать и словацкий, и польский, и украинский, и чешский, и сербский и тем более белорусский языки. Потому что все эти слова на самом деле глубоко снутри, однако мы про их запамятовали. Русский стиль намного богаче, поэтому что в собственном движении на восход он собрал больше "трофейного багажа", чем хоть какой иной славянский стиль, этак немало, что беречь негде.

mobatumi (2 years ago)
+Wei Li Что за нагромождение нелепостей и выдумок? Ты не попросту осваивай копипейст, а хоть вдумывайся в то, что вываливаешь! Происхождение слова "Арбат" непонятно, и тюркская гипотиза - только одна из 10-ка. Самая распространённая - арабская, а не тюркская (арбад по-арабски - предместье). "Татарские" наименования в Москве пришлись на этап ига, когда в Москве повсевременно присутствовала монгольская миссия! Поэтому места их постоя этак и называли! И это никак не могли быть крымские татаре, очень спозаранку, Крымского Ханства даже ещё не было! "Кремлём" в славянских языках вначале именовался лес, шедший на стройка! Отсюда заглавие для крепостей, которые сначало из этого леса и строились! Татар на Русь уже в конце либо потом Ига переселилось большущее огромное количество, они воспринимали православие! Целый монгольский род поступил на службу царю и им были выданы земли, гед был основан Касимов, городок принца Касима. Поэтому очевидно самые знатные из их становились дворянами. Где здесь тюркские корешки, когда выговор о самых реальных иммигрантах?
+mobatumi Тюркское прошедшее Москвы - Московский Арбат - собственное имя Арбат из тюрк. ар ′мужик′, ′супруг′ + бат (~ баш) ′башка′, ′маковка′. Достоверно понятно, что при Иване Калите,Кремль именовался Кремником, заглавие это тюркское и вышло от 2-ух слов: "крэм", значащее "зайду, взойду", и "нык" - "надежно". Тюркское прошедшее Москвы - Татаровская пойма и Татарово в Крылатском – по данным из духовной грамоты от 1417 года (грамота столичного князя Василия Дмитриевича), эта место принадлежала татарину, может быть, крымскому. Главной улицей Татарской слободы была Большая Татарская (Татарская до революции). Южной границей Татарской слободы в XVII–XVIII веках был Малый Татарский проулок (Татарский до революции). Улицы Татарская (Малая Татарская до революции) и Большая Татарская были частью Ордынской дороги, позднее стали продолжением дороги к Татарской слободе от Ногайского двора. Тюркское прошедшее Москвы - Ногайский двор размещался в месте, где на данный момент находится Павелецкий вокзал («меж Конной площадью и Кожевниками на Зацепе»). Известно, что с Ногайским двором были тесновато связаны тюркско-мусульманские поселения Замоскворечья и Татарская слобода (обслуживали ногайское посольство, рынок, были торговцами, ремесленниками и переводчиками). В тех случаях, когда из Ногайской Орды с маленький различием во времени прибывало несколько посольств, тех, кто приехал позже располагали за подворьями этих стран. Например, ногаев располагали на отдельных дворах Замоскворечья, а в 1560 году в Кожевниках и в Мустофинском дворе. Многие татары были в Боярских перечнях.Многие татары были дворянами и боярами.

I'm Russian and Ukrainian. Personally, I think Ukrainian is complicated. It's an interesting mixture of Latin letters, and Cyrillic letters. And, overall for me it's just harder to understand. A lot of my friends are fully Ukrainian (they have no Russian ancestors of their own), and they speak Russian. Although, one of them only speaks Ukrainian, and said Russian was really confusing. I get that it depends on where you live/what language you learn first. Though, I hear that in Ukraine (eastern Ukraine to be more exact), people can understand each other whether they speak either language. But when my friend hears me speak Russian, he has no idea what I'm saying. And when he speaks Ukrainian to me, I don't know what he's saying. Why is that?
Krzysztof Szuszkowski (1 year ago)
Sophisticated scientific or political russian language is difficult to understand for foreigners. Russia is most advanced slavic country in the World.
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+Реесе Шерман Because Ukrainian and Russian is pretty differeent) But Ukrainians as people from former USSR study Russian since childhood. We have a lot of Russian movies on TV, Russian books, Russian music/ Also a lot of people speak Russian in Ukraine/ But if your friend live somewhere on West Ukraine near Poland or Hungary, he hear more hungarian or Polish language, don't listen Russian music ans Russian movies - that's result why Russian is confusing for him. Ukrainians and Russians think that we must understand Russian pretty well. I think whole my life that I know Russian fluently. But when I enter the university and sometimes there was information for lessons only in Russian (I found it in Google when prepare for lessons) it makes me crazy - I really don't undrstand anything))) And it's so hard to read some scientific literature in Russian!!!! Other case with everyday language. Yes, we understand it fluently. But what about Russian speaking skills. Since childhood I know Russian. And I think that I can speak it easily, because I know it. But really, when I go to Russia and start to speak Russian - it was terrible. I think a lot before say next words, I changed it to Ukrainian very often))) Because I didn't have experience to speak Russian. When I recieved this experience, now I can speak pretty good. The same with English. Before you listen and don't use it on your life - you understand everything but can't speak)))
Polak Socjaldemokrata (3 years ago)
Polish words are similar to russian or ukrainian ones. house – dom (budynek – building) room – pokój (komnata – room in castel or palace) floor – podłoga ceiling – sufit wall – ściana table – stół chair – krzesło, stołek bed – łóżko (krawat – tie) arm-chair – fotel wardrobe – szafa, garderoba window – okno door – drzwi kitchen – kuchnia bedroom – sypialnia stairs – schody street – ulica city – miasto (gród – stronghold, borough) Could you make comparison Polish – Ukrainian – Russian?

Very Similar, yes. Ukrainian is even closer to Belarusian, though, they should make a Polish-Ukrainian-Belarusian comparison.

It's just like the Spanish language. There are so many countries that speak Spanish but we converse differently and we have so many different accents. We have some of the same phrases but different slang words and curse words. So when we meet someone from a different spanish speaking country we get confused. Even the Portuguese, Italian and some say the French are similar to Spanish. In my experience I can read some Italian and Portuguese and understand very little but when I hear it I get confused. I have noticed some similarities in the French language but not much for me to understand it well. Also when I learned the Russian alphabet I even noticed some words that are similar to the Spanish language I found that very interesting. I know most of Europe used one language a long time ago and it broke off into what we see now in Europe. I think it's cool hearing and seeing the differences and similarities.

dom, izba, podlaha, strop, stena, stôl, stolička, posteľ, kreslo, skriňa, okno, dvere, kuchyňa, spáľňa, schody, ulica, mesto - in slovak languages. I thought, that there will be more similarities in ukrainian, but it was equaly 3 words from UA (podlaha, schody, mesto), 3 from RU (dom, stôl, okno), some from both (stena, kuchyňa, dvere...) and some have no similarities at all (strop, postel...).. Another word is kinda similar - russian Комната. We have "IZBA", but we also use word komnata, but for meaning "chamber"...so smthing like room in castle
Pitur (3 months ago)
Exactly the same like in slovak is in polish: dom, izba podłoga, ściana , stół , stolik, pościel, krzesło, skrzynia, okno, drzwi, kuchnia, sypialnia, schody , ulica ,miasto. But we have additionaly (strop, and pościel), i think they also exist in czech as (strop and povleceni) ??We have also izba, komnata (in castle) , pokój (room) , kabina (cabin)
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
Wow, pretty interesting. Russians have word Izba too, but it means wooden house. There is  posteľ in Russian and postil in Ukrainian, but it means bedclothes.  Also ulica is the same like in Russian) Skriňa - we have this word in Ukrainian, but it was used in old Ukraine. People didn't have wardrobe for closeths, they had skriňa what was similar to chest and keep all their cloths there)

Half of words are similar to Russian and the other half are similar to Polish.

+MegaSexfanatic  what do you mean derived from russian? all slavic languages has same base from protoslavic language, that is why it is similliar before all slavs spoke one language
Olga Reznikova (3 years ago)
+MegaSexfanatic Будинок in Ukrainian comes from word будувати, будова etc. Which word in Russian будка comes from? Ліжко comes from Ukrainian лежати Mі100 is similar to Polish mjasto, you are right. But where is Russian words "местечковый", "обыватель", "филистерство" сomes from? Looking at this, I can say, that it's sooner Russian language is similar to Ukrainian)  Mirror in Ukrainian is дзеркало or люстерко. First one is similar to Russian, and second is similar to Polish. Similar - doesn't mean the same) All slavic languages is similar, because they all are slavic. But at the same time, they are different)
MegaSexfanatic (3 years ago)
+Olga Reznikova 1. Something like "Будынок" is in Polish ("будка" is present in Russian) 2. And "Лижко" is close to Polish "lozko" (both are derived from Russian "улечься", "возлежать", "ложе", "лёжка", "лежанка", "лежак", "логово") 3. "Мисто" also have close equivalent in Polish (in Russian we have "местечковый", "обыватель", "филистерство" same root, but new and completely different meaning). Sorry for you have no mirror in your room, it is interesting how you pronounce "mirror", close to Russian or close to Polish.

Hi! I live in Khmelnitsky.  That you hear about language - it's true, but that's in common life.  But there is one official language, which people study at school, use at university, and office, speak in official events. I think I can compare with USA. There is special slang in New York, Texas and Florida, for example. But this people also can speak proper English, which will be understandable for every person from any country.

As someone who is still a beginner, a thing I notice a lot is 'для тебя' and 'тебя'. I only started to notice this after getting into Ukrainian culture, before I assumed that для тебя was used in both as I think it sounds nicer and makes more sense but after seeing it sometimes it's noticeable. It's something that helps me tell some songs in Ukrainian apart from songs in Russian especially! By the way, why do so many patriotic Ukrainian singers still sing in Russian, eg Zlata Ognevich used to sing in Russian and English and only a few times in Ukrainian, is this because of where they are from( she is from Crimea) or is it like how many European singers sing in English instead of their native languages, to reach more people and make it understood to more people? I love watching videos where you speak words out loud, they can be really funny sometimes! :)

Hm, I think it's because Russian is more widespread languages, because all our singers are popular in all post-USSR countries. But anyway, we have a lot of Ukrainian songs, just this songs is popular only in Ukraine and maybe that's why you didn't hear them) 
Transcription is not correct. It is more like transliteration from Cyrillic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_Russian http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_Ukrainian
+MegaSexfanatic It is a misconception. Wikipedia and Wiktionary is not for scientists and uses IPA everywhere. And I know several popular language series that uses IPA in their books, like: http://www.glossika.com/ and https://www.langenscheidt.de/ Of course everyone can learn languages without IPA, but it is a very useful tool that helps learn language more efficiently.

+Владимир Русаков IPA is for scientists. Common people never use IPA (except we, Russians in Russian school when learning English). It is not necessary for them. Common people have no need in precise sounding, all they need is similar sounding.

+Владимир Русаков I don't know IPA and I've never had a problem learning pronunciation.
+Trevie3 If someone is interested in learning languages, they should know IPA. 21 century, you know. Wikipedia and so many resources are available for free.

+Владимир Русаков So what? Not everyone knows IPA.
