Read the following grammar explanations for this lesson:
Russian reflexive verbs
When we use a reflexive verb in a sentence, the subject and the object are the same. In English, we usually convey this idea adding”myself”, “yourself”, etc. (I wash myself, he speaks with himself,…).
In Russian we add one of these two particles: сь and ся.
- We use сь when the verb ends in a vowel.
- We use ся when the verb does not end in a vowel.
Now we will see an example in English and Russian with the same verbs: мыть (to wash) and мыться (to wash oneself):
TO WASH ONESELF
past: washed oneself
The verb “to go”: идти
This is one of the few Russian verbs whose infinitive does not end with “ть”.
In Russian there are many verbs to express movement, being идти the most important.
