Russian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

дорого́й (dorogój) (comparative доро́же, superlative дорожа́йший)

  1. dear
  2. expensive
Usage notes[edit]
  • In the sense of "my dear", this word is not restricted to use between men and women, but is quite common between friends of the same sex, or a teacher to any of his students without regard to sex. When used between men, мой дорогой (moj dorogoj) usually is not translated, since English does not possess a good unisex counterpart to this.
Declension[edit]

* Note: The letter "г (g)" in the endings "-ого" / "-его" for the genitive masculine and neuter singular and and accusative masculine animate singular is pronounced as /v/, not /g/.
