Random words: УБИТЬ. Kill 3 with 1.Posted: July 28, 2014
A useful one sometimes. Let’s see how we can remember it.
You must already know the verb БЫТЬ – to be. As sound Ы is a hard nut to crack, probably in the beginning you always pronounced it like БИТЬ, completely unaware that it is another verb.
Быть = to be
Бить = to beat somebody
Убить = to kill (very close to бить, just add a prefix), perfective. A bit strange in the future: убью, убьёшь, etc.
Убивать = to kill, imperfective, regular.
