    I have a favor to ask of anyone who speaks Russian. My history teacher thinks that I am a communist. How do you say "I am not a Communist!" in Russian?

    He is has Soviet History Major, so i thought i would be funny. I wrote CCCP! (i I saw it on the side of a drawing of an I-16) on my paper. he really knows that I'm not a communist, but I still want to be able to say (pronounce) "I'm not a communist" in Russian.

    I cant believe I've lived long enough that "CCCP" is funny. Al Queda and Osama are punks compared to the Soviet bear in its prime. The hammer and sickle will never be fashionable for me.

    Why don't you just throw a giant spit ball at your teacher when he has his back turned? If a teacher of mine call me a commie I'd kick him in his nuts! If female I'd spike her coffee with ex lax!!!!!

    Well you need to find someone here that speaks Russian.


    And by coincedence, that would be me. :)

    Я - pronounced "Ya"

    не - "Ne" but sort of more like "n'yeah". Not like the english "knee", the end of the word drops like "yeah" not "ee". If you say it quickly, don't emphasize the "yeah" part, and with no pause between the n' and the "yeah" it will sound right.

    коммунист! Almost exactly like "Communist" in English


    Hope that helps

    Next lesson: "My hovercraft is full of eels" :D
