There are several ways to say "my name is:" Menya zovut [meenYAH zaVOOT]
(literally me they_call) is one. Another is Ya nazyvayus [yah nazyVAIyoos]
litterally I call_myself) I have also heard Moyo imye - Peter [mahYOH
EEMyah - Peter] (litterally my name Peter - Russian lacks a copula)

One to ten is:

odin [uhDYEEN]
dva [dvah]
tri [tree]
chetyre [cheTEEre[
pyat' [pyatch - the "t" is palatalized, so it is not truly "ch," but more
the "t" in "I'll let you - letya."]
shest' [shestch - that same "t" again]
syem' [syem']
vosyem [vosyem]
dyevyat' [DYEvyatch - that "t" again]
dyesyat' [DYEsyatch]

Russian is a great language and my favorite of the ones I know. This
website, which another member of the list posted earlier, is an excellent

Good luck, Peter
