Collective Russian Numbers


--------------------------- - two [DVOH-yeh]
- three [TROH-yeh]
- four [CHYET-vee-rah]
- five [PYAH-tee-rah]
- six [SHYES-tee-rah]

- seven [SYEH-mee-rah]
Russian collective numbers are formed from corresponding cardinal numbers with t
he help of such suffixes as -- and --. For example:
--> [DVOH-yeh]
--> [TROH-yeh]
--> [CHYET-vee-rah]
Using the Russian Collective Numbers:
The Russian grammar has several rules about proper usage of the collective numbe
rs. The collective numbers can be used:
1.With masculine nouns
- four students
- four holiday-makers (vacationers)
- three guests
2.With nouns designating children and young animals
- two children
- seven children
- seven small goats
- seven small wovles
3.With nouns which are always plural
- three people
- two days
- four scissors
- two pairs of glasses
Collective numbers are not used with feminine nouns (except ). You should a
lways say (two sisters), (four rivers), etc.
There are two more collective numbers you should know about: and . Unlike the
rest of the collective numbers, these numbers can be used with nouns of all thr
ee genders.
The number is used with the masculine and neuter nouns. It has the letter
o in the stem when you decline it.
The numeral is used with feminine nouns and has the letter e in the stem w
hen you decline it.

The basic examples of fractions in Russian are:


1/3 - [ahd-nah tryeht'-yah]
1/2 - [ahd-nah ftah-rah-yah]
2/9 - [dvyeh dee-vyah-tikh]
As you might have noticed from the examples, the first part of a fractional nume
ral is the cardinal number, the second part is the ordinal number.
Now look at the examples of decimal fractions. Notice that unlike in English, Ru
ssians use a comma (not a dot) to distinguish between the whole and the remainde
r.
0,5 - ,
1,04 - ,
2,75 - ,

Mastering Russian decimal fractions is a two-step process:


1.Say the number placed before the comma, followed by the word for numbers ending in
1, or the word for all other numbers.
For example: 0,.. - ; 3,.. - ; 41,.. -
2.Then say the number after the comma followed by the word (10th), (100th),
the type of a fraction.
For example: ..,5 - ; ..,41 - ; ..,009 -

Shortcut names for some fractions, In spoken Russian, some fractions have specia
l names:
1/2 is [pah-lah-vee-nah] (half)
1/3 is [tryeht'] (third)
1/4 is [chyet-vyehrt'] (quarter)
1,5 is [pahl-tah-rah] (one and a half)
The fraction declines like feminine nouns ending in -a ().
