RU- Verbs of motion!

Every learner of the Russian language will be confronted to the verbs of motion at some point, and it’s not the easiest part. This ppt isn’t going to be a full course about these, because I’m only a beginner myself, so I wouldn’t be able to explain everything clearly and accurately just yet.

So here I tried to make neat tables to learn them more easily! But first, I advise you watch these great YouTube videos I found about verbs of motion, and prefixes of motion verbs:

  1. Playlist of videos about verbs of motion
  2. Prefixes for verbs of motion

So yeah, my ppt is:

  • Non prefixed motion verbs
  • Prefixes (3 detailed slides + 1 summary)
  • Prefixed motion verbs (through 1 example: ходить)
  • Derived nouns from ходить and its prefixed counterparts

I hope that helps people, and if there is anything to be corrected please tell me asap!!!

This is so cool to see!

Bliaut. "The bliaut is a rich, full overgown made of fine silk, laced tight down the sides of the body, with long, hanging sleeves."
Cotehardie. “The cotehardie is another figure-hugging gown, this time with tight sleeves and a buttoned or laced front.”
Houppelande. “The houpplelande is a later gown, long and full and worn belted above the waist. “
Sideless surcoat. “The sideless surcoat is cut away at the sides to reveal a tighly-fitted undergown, and often shows heraldic colours.”
Underwear. “A simple linen shift for women and a shirt for men.”

Link 1 Oct 91 notes 6 genius German idioms we should be using in English»

thatswhywelovegermany:

Nice list with one exception:

To translate überflüssig as “over liquid” is not strictly correct and it does not have a positive connotation, as suggested in the article.The adjective / adverb überflüssig is derived from the noun der Überfluss, which can be literally translated as “overflow” = excess, exuberance, opulence, superabundance, which in turn is derived from the verb überfließen = to overflow, to overspill, to run over. Überflüssig = redundant, superfluous, dispensable, not needed.
