How do you say 'hello beautiful' in Russian?

hello beautiful,pronunciation = prizat = hello / b. = cracizoya.

hope it helps...

__________

I don't know what language the above is.

Hello, colloquially, is privet, pronounced pree-vyet. Beautiful is kracivii--for a female, kra-see-vaya.

Privet kracivaya isn't a proper phrase, however, as kracivaya is still an adjective. (You wouldn't say, "Hello, strong!" or, "Hello, smart!")

So the proper saying should be, "Privet, krasavitsa."

pree-VYET kra-sa-VEET-sa.
