Looking for a Russian teacher?

Word in focus

чувак  [choo-VAK] (masculine noun) – dude, man, guy

А кто этот чувак? Ты его раньше здесь видел? = Who is that guy? Have you seen him here before?

У тебя что, чувак, совсем крыша поехала? =  Dude, are you nuts?

Main | чувак - dude »

крошка - a crumb

крошка  [KROSH-ka] (feminine noun) – a crumb

На остановке голубь клевал хлебные крошки. = A pigeon was pecking breadcrumbs at the bus stop.


"Крошка" can also be used to describe a small child. It can also mean "baby, babe, honey" while talking about women: 

Пошли, крошка! = Let's go, baby!

Мне нравится эта крошка! = I like this babe!

However, when used in this sense, the word sounds slightly disparaging.



крошечный = tiny

крошить = to crumble
