Probably, I don't know. I need official spelling  :eek: .

There is no "official spelling" for name transcriptions.
It always depends on person

"Aygerim", I guess. :eek:

Sounds right for me


Thank you.

I fill in official documents. I don't know correct transcription like in passport.
I have to fill in form for visa, therefore it's important. :-/

Why not to ask her?


Kitten, LOL!

In my work I often has to write the word Kazakstan. I looked at the topic and saw "Kazakhstan". So I wonder if anyone knows what is a proper spelling of our country?
Thanks in advance for valid answer.

Proper spelling is "Kazakhstan". Several years ago it was "Kazakstan", but then it has been oficially changed by Kazakhstani MFA. We received the official MFA dipnote about that new requirement, so, now "Kazakhstan" is correct.

Actually both spellings are right. 'Kazakstan' came from kazakh transliteration. But in most cases it is spelt with 'h' and it is the official one.

xEn0s is right. both spellings are right. it's just different language transliteration.

"KazaKstan" is a Kazak transliteration,
"KazaKHstan" is a Russian one.

Прикольную идиому вспомнил, насколько понял она означает намерение покинуть небольшой группе людей(чаще 2-3 человека) более многочисленную и одновременно что-то вроде прощания:
- Let's make like a fat girl in dadgeball(не уверен в правильности слова) and be out.
И ещё похожая:
- Let's make like a tree and a leaf(-ve).
Поправьте, если не прав. И вот это dadgeball, что-то вроде выбивала нашего или нет?

По смыслу что-то вроде "Цены подлежат уведомлению" :)

Both sentences below are absolutely correct according to English rules of punctuation:

(a) Anna's sister who lives in Kiev is a doctor.
(b) Anna's sister, who lives in Kiev, is a doctor.

What is the important difference between these two sentences?

I think tha main difference is misunderstanding of the who lives in Kiev and who is a doctor, however a frequent Word user would definetely put a comma between who, where and etc. OR it may mean that Anna herself is a doctor %) karache WHO FAX THE FAX %)

and who is a "wop"?

launching my Lingvo... :laugh:

wop
сущ.; презр. 
а) прозвище, даваемое американцами иммигрантам из Италии или из других южных европейских стран 
б) итальянский язык

Hmm... Baurym, sonda Italiya mafiyasimen dostasa bastadin ba? ;-) :)
(Bro, are you dealing with Italian mafia there?)

I guess, "Emancipation Proclamation" stands for "Провозглашение эмансипации", doesn't it? Which means make it more popular... maybe?

"Emancipation Proclamation" is somehow related to the civil rights of Afro-Americans.

==Casino Dealers==

Two bored casino dealers are waiting at the crap table. A very attractive blonde woman arrived and bet twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) on a single roll of the dice.

She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude." With that, she stripped off all her clothes, rolled the dice and yelled, "Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!"

As the dice came to a stop she jumped up and down and squealed..."YES! YES! I WON, I WON!" She hugged each of the dealers and then picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.

The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded. Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?" The other answered, "I don't know - I thought you were watching."


> >MORAL: Not all blondes are dumb, but all men are men.
