Struggling with the declination of Russian nouns? I find the “DEKLINATOR” in the RUSLANKA webpage very useful. You can click on some 200 nouns and get instant declination for the 6 cases. It is designed for German students, but not particularly difficult to understand if you do not speak German. Unfortunately I cannot download the direct webpage access, since it disappears when I preview this message (strange), so if any is interested how to locate the ‘DEKLINATOR’ I can pm it.

I bought the book 501 Russian Verbs which is page after page of verb declinations. You can find it at Dom Knigi.

Thanks for your comment but I refer to "declination" not to "conjugation of verbs".

ha, it wasn't my comment, but anyway
seems like you use "declination" for any way of form changes of words
And my dictionary gives declination on for verbs - indicative, imperative, conditional and conjunctive mood.
And for nouns - it is cases.

Thanks for your comment. 501 Russian verbs is a great book for conjugation of verbs but I was referring to "declination or declension of nouns".

Sorry if I confused you with the word Deklination which is the word used in German and strictly speaking translated into English should be "declension". Declination does of course exist in English but not used in grammar.

You can also find the declension of nouns (and verb conjugations) on Multitran (http://www.multitran.ru). It's an excellent dictionary, and if you put in a Russian word in any form whatsoever, you will get the basic form and the translations. If you click on this basic form, you get the full list of forms (all cases and numbers for nouns, all persons and numbers for verbs).

Also, try Gramota (http://www.gramota.ru), and you will see for nouns at least the genitive singular and other exceptional forms. For advanced Russian students, it is more than enough.

Yes it is a great book, in that it not only has the congugation of verbs but also the declination of verbs.
No, it doesn't have the declination of nouns but you didn't specify.
Excuse me for trying to help.

I did "Russian for Everybody" by Russky Yazyk publishers way back in the days of perestroika. Very Soviet, but very clear on cases and declension. (It was weaker on verb aspects, but I had the case system figured out over that first year.

@KIRK, thanks for the info. Checked out both Multitran and Gramota. Both most useful, and I hope your tip will be useful to others.
