Ukrainian Untranslatable Phrases

Postby TashaRo88 » 2011-02-05, 21:30

Hi, I am a second Generation Ukrainian-American who is currently working on an assignment for University. I was wondering if anyone could suggest to me some phrases in Ukrainian that do not translate into English well.

If you could write in the Ukrainian alphabet, that would be helpful. Thanks!

Natasha

Hey Obi-Wan, could you maybe translate this for me and give a brief explanation of what the phrase signifies in Ukrainian? What I came up with when I searched was "Let it Greek!" but, this does not make much sense in English(which it shouldn't), but knowing the significance would be nice.

Thanks!

Literally it means «May it have a stroke». Depending on the context, it can have various meanings:
- To hell with that!
- Damn it!
- Blast him!
- It's not worth mentioning (let's change the topic)

It can be applied to a thing, situation or a human being (хай йому/їй́/їм грець).
