Привет, меня зовут Николай Джордж Шэнкс.
1 мая 1981 г. родился в Ноттингем, Великобритания.
Я живу в Хатфилд, Хартфордшир, Англия.

Я не говорю по-русски. Smile

[edit] At first these boards didn't support Unicode, so I transcribed into latin:

Privyet, menya zavot Nicholas George Shanks.
1 Mai 1981 g. rodilsya v Nottingham, Vyelikobritanniya.
Ya zhivoo v Hatfield, Hertfordshire, Angliya.

Ya nye govoryu pa-russki.

Hmm, I need to investigate this. We thought they did. The rest of the site is encoded using UTF-8. I will look at having this fixed shotly.

OK guys, the forums should now be running in UTF-8 (unicode). You should now be able to post in Russian without it being full of junk.

Nickshanks: You may wish to edit your first post, so it saves in unicode.

Sorry for the trouble.

Regards,
Forum Admin

Hello, my name is Mat and I took a couple years of Russian in college. I'm just trying to re-learn the language. It was very fun to learn and I had a great time with it.

That's it,

Mat

Why "Киди" not Кити, "чикаго" not Шикаго?

i tried using T but my teacher gave me a big ol smackdown. she said names are usually transliterated the way they sound so i would use a D rather than T for my name. chicago, however, is a place name with its own spelling in russian that i can't change, even though it is pronounced as an 'sh', russians wouldn't know that just seeing it.

Bit kitty is pronounced with a 't', at least the way I say it! /kɪti/

Most yankeees are lazy in their pronunciation and gloss over the T, making it closer to a D. At any rate, I tried spelling it with a T and a native Russian said they'd use a д. What's a girl to do?

Aww, sorry for querying you, it just looked weird to my eyes. I guess many US English speakers outside New England would use a flap, in the same way that many in the south over here would use a glottal stop?

If you are looking for a pen pal to learn Russian with, I would be happy to do so. My email is contact@nickshanks.com

Вообще-то, правильно по-русски твое имя пишется Китти.
