Part 8: Russian Swear Words - Russian language tutorial and phrasebook

Author: Dmitry Paranyushkin (on 10 Jun 2015)
The main thing about swearing in Russian is the attitude. If you haven’t got the right attitude, using swear words can be very dangerous in Russia. There’s a very good word in Russian called “bychit’” (“бычить”) - it means to behave oneself like a bull. That’s what you should be doing. You should always have a concrete physical feeling of crawling on top of something and hitting it very hard with your head. You can tilt your head down, raise your eyebrows, and open your eyes wide open.

That will work. Once you got the attitude, try saying: “ty che, blyad?” (what the fuck?). Use this expression to show confusion. If you want to attack, say, “idi syuda” (come here!) and then, “schas po ebalu poluchish, suka, blyad!” (now i’ll fucking kill you bitch, motherfucker!). Generally, adding “suka, blyad” to the end of each sentence is a good way to master swearing in Russian.
 
Remember Russian swearwords sound very strong and have a powerful enchanting effect.

Sample Russian Swearword Phrase Construction

 

To construct a Russian swear phrase, you need to put some words together first.

For instance, if you want to say:
fuck off, you asshole, fuck!

You need to say:
otva`li, mu`dak, b`lyad!

And if you write it in Russian:
отвали, мудак, бля!    

Another example:
it's fucked up!

You need to say:
piiiiz'dets, blyaaaa

and if you write it in Russian:
пииииииздец, бляяяя....

And finally...
are you fucking crazy, you asshole?

You need to say:
ty che, suka, o'khuel blya?

and if you write it in Russian:
ты чё, сука, охуел, бля?
