English to Romanian translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Linguistics / transliteration
English term or phrase:gavari pa ruski...[?]
I am translating a film where a character claims that he knows Russian. The dialogue goes something along the lines of :
"Do you speak Russian ?"
"Da. Gavari pa ruski [nem noshko]."
I believe that the first three words actually indicate his knowledge of Russian and that there's a pronoun (?) at the end. The bracketed words are a rough transcription of mine.
If they make any sense, I would like to know how these two words [nem noshko] should be spelled into the Latin alphabet and their meaning. I guess I could say I'm lost in transliteration... Thanks in advance.
