...и в подходящем контексте даже хитровы*банный.

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

Хитрый? I’ve never heard of this meaning.

🇺🇸 Uly 🐝added a comment 2 months ago

Дап)) В Англии употребляют это слово в смысле интеллигентный, но в США скорее в смысле хитрый.

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

Uly, я не спец в матерном русском, but did you mean хитро вы*бывающийся? Something like that.

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

Uly, do you know that this is a tricky word for translators from Russian into English?
Because in Russian интеллигентный means образованный человек, человек с хорошими манерами, воспитанием. But in English intelligent is simply “clever”.

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

Ok. Now I know another obscene Russian word. )

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

I’ve checked the dictionary to be more precise. The meaning of интеллигентный is cultured, educated.

🇺🇸 Uly 🐝added a comment 2 months ago

Ok, I meant the difference between умный and хитрый.

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

Ok, I see. Then what will it be in the US English «умный»?

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

Yes, I have already guessed it. ) But thank you anyway. )

Anna Sevastyanovaadded a comment 2 months ago

So I’ll add both. I think there was an option to choose BrE or AmE.
