It is really quite amazing how intonation
makes all the difference
when speaking Russian.
For example, in English, we say, "Is that a book
?" and, "That is a book." But in Russian
, both can be said with the phrase, "Eta Kneega." (Spelled Phonetically
, of course
. Pronounce the K and the N seperately, not as in "knee
") The distinction between statement
is all in intonation.
High - KNE
Low - eta ga
High - ETA
Low - kneega
