“Один раз” (Numerals 1-10)

Дата: 01 Авг 2015 · Рубрики: Notes on the Russian language · Метки: , , , ,

When one counts in Korean it goes as “하나, 둘, 셋…” But if one answers the question “How many” It would be “한 개, 두개, 세개”

In Russian only one numeral behaves that way. And that is one! :) All the rest do not change just like numbers in English. Russian numerals answering “How many?” are:

1 – один (어딘 / odin), 2 – два (돠 / dva), 3 – три (트리 / tree), 4 – четыре (챼트례 / chetyre) , 5 – пять (뱌티 but without i / pyat’), 6 – шесть (세스티 / shest’), 7 – семь (썜 / sem’), 8 – восемь (워섐 / vosem’), 9 – девять (댸우얕 / devyat’), 10 – десять (댸샷 / dyesyat’)

When counting Russians use “раз (랏 / raz/ras)” for 1. The word “раз ” can also be used with other numerals like this:

один раз, два раза, три раза, четыре раза, пять раз, шесть раз, семь раз, восемь раз, девять раз, десять раз

These word combinations are used for counting activities and answer questions like “How many times is it done?”

There are also special “names” for numbers when we do not use them for counting but refer to them as writing characters. In this case numbers 1-9 are called digits which is “цифры” in Russian. (цифра – singular form, цифры – plural form)

1 – единица, 2- двойка, 3 – тройка, 4 – четверка, 5 – пятерка, 6 – шестерка, 7 – семерка, 8 – восьмерка, 9 – девятка

Here are some dialogues and situations

 – Have you been abroad?
– Yes, but only once.
  – Ты уже сделал домашнюю работу?
– Десять раз!
  – Have you done your homework already?
– Ten times! (The meaning is “Of cause, not!”)
 Семь раз отмерь – один отрежь. (Поговорка)  Measure 7 times before cutting once. (Proverb) Meaning: Think a lot before doing something.
Раз, два, три, четыре, пять – вышел зайчик погулять. (Детская считалочка)  1, 2, 3, 4, 5. A rabbit went for a walk (Counting rhymes for children)
 3497654 – Сколько троек и сколько шестерок ты видишь? (Задание из учебника)  3497654 – How many numbers 3 and 6 do you see? (A task from a schoolbook)
 2 – это цифра два. Двойка похожа на лебедя.  2 – this is digit two. The two looks like a swan.
