I'm trying to find Russian equivalents for the following interjections/expressions:
- "Don't!" (when we very much don't want someone to do something)
- "No!" (to express dismay)
- "That's enough." (warning someone that they are about to cross the line)
- "You see..." (encouraging someone to listen & understand)
You see, city guys like you aren't real welcome around here
Online translation tools are not very helpful with this sort of thing. Any input appreciated.
This question was closed earlier because I didn't provide evidence of prior research. I AM trying to learn Russian and am not trying to "cheat". I have completed a couple of extensive online Russian courses, but nothing in those courses covers this topic. I've also extensively researched Russian slang, but cannot find Russian equivalents for these interjections.
Two more that I'm having difficulty with:
- "now" (eg. Now I'm not here to lecture you, only to tell you a story.) I'm guessing that "сейчас" or "теперь" would not function the same way here.
- "I mean..." (eg. What about notes? I mean, the scientist must have kept notes on his research.). Would 'Я имею в виду' convey the same meaning here? To me it sounds too wordy.
