Borrowed words in Russian language
« on: August 19, 2009, 04:47:49 PM »
Many technical and jargon words have been imported to the Russian language and many have the  ‘-ovat' suffix added to them.

‘adapt’ becomes ‘adapt-eer-ovat’
‘compensate’ becomes ‘compen-seer-ovat’

Other words share the same roots as English and once you ear begins to hear the words you will understand them very well.

 'romantic' becomes ‘roman-tee-chis-kiy’
'dramatic' is pronounced  ‘drama-tee-chis-kiy’ in Russian.

How about 'modern', 'monernizm'? Is that correct to say 'moderniz-eer-ovat' '?

Yes, "modern' is a borrowed word.
If you know russian suffixes, you can add them in a different ways and get a new words with the same meaning.
modern in russian means stylish, new and fashion
