Russian Grammar Lesson: The Plural of the Nouns in the Nominative Case

Russian Grammar Lesson 8: The Plural of the Nouns in the Nominative Case

A blog post on Fun Russian with more information and practice regarding The Plural of the Russian Nouns in the Nominative Case. Between the video and that post on her blog, Victoria from Fun Russian goes through the rules for changing Russian nouns from singular to plural. She talks about the endings for both hard and soft stem nouns that are masculine, feminine and neuter. Then she touches on the seven letter spelling rule. I won't copy that information here, but the The 7 Letter Spelling Rule in Russian is discussed both in the video above on on the blog link above.

At the end of the video she gives five practice words in singular, and suggests writing the answers in the comments on YouTube. I did write the words down in singular and plural. Sure enough, I got one wrong and I was quickly able to correct myself via Victoria's comments left for other language learners on YouTube.

Here is the tag in this blog regarding gender of Russian nouns.

Extreme photo cropping

Update... the video has been removed since this post was first written...
The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.

Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…

What is it that you love? Let the world know what you love the most with this fully customizable tee. The "Fill in the Blank" text below the "I Heart" design can be changed.

As you can see in the image below, the size of the heart design can change if needed to match the added text.

I just got done watching Michael Phelps get his 8 for 8 gold medals.
