Random words: ДЕНЬГИ / ДЕНЬ

We have already covered some money-related words. The one for today is simply “money” – ДЕНЬГИ. Just cut off the last bit and you will get the word “day” – ДЕНЬ (with soft sound Н). So, in Russian, these two words, money and day, sound very similar.

Well, this is how you can remember it. ДЕНЬ sounds a bit like English DEN (where bears and rough men live). If you make a connection between den and day, you will remember ДЕНЬ and then ДЕНЬГИ. Don’t you need money every day?

If you love a man

If you love a man but he does not want to know you, borrow from him lots of money – then he will think about you lots and often! (денег is Genitive form of деньги)
