Russian Morphology Diagnostic

Though this was written for our RUSS2102 review course, anyone's free to take it. Just don't enter your name!

The quiz is on the basics of morphology: using the form of a word to predict its part of speech or its gender, and matching up words that share a root.

Morphology in Context

Here's a quiz on morphology, using context. You'll be given partial Russian sentences and their translations. You'll use your knowledge of prefixes and suffixes - and the context! - to determine which would be the best fit.

Take the quiz.

Making new words with suffixes

Here's another matching exercise on suffixes. In this one, you're given a root and a meaning for a new word to be made from it (for instance, дум: thoughtful) and you pick the right suffix (which would be чив, in this case).

Try the exercise!

Fill Vowel Challenge

This activity is called a "challenge board". It's kind of like Jeopardy, in that it has categories and columns, but the points are awarded differently.

This particular one is on fleeting (fill) vowels - providing the correct form (with or without) when given an example of the other one.

Give it a try, why don't you?
