The parts of the day

Thanks to something called "grammatical cases" (you don't need to learn this to use this phrasebook) one Russian word expresses something for which you need three words in English (for example "in the morning"). You can see it here:


WORD PRONUNCIATION
  у́тром
in the morning
ú-tram

  днём
in the daytime
dnyom

  ве́чером
in the evening
vyé-chye-ram

  но́чью
