To Craunch a Marmoset
Hat tip to B.A.D.
I won't translate it because...well, yes I will. Oh hey or I'll teach you Russian the way graduate programs do: through reading.
собираться--to be collected
замужем----behind a man
ребенок-----a child, the child, the idea of a child
Bear in mind that замужем doesn't properly function like any known part of speech, you'd never guess the conjugation of ждать by looking at it, even if you squint, and the o in ребенок is fleeting in oblique cases because of the fall of the jers. And now you know, in record time, why that method of language pedagogy is a colossal misjudgment.
