Usage notesEdit

  • Some Russians differentiate between ложь (ložʹ) and враньё (vranʹjó). A lie which is told to deceive someone is a ложь. Tall tales told without the malicious intention of deceiving others are враньё. In practice, however, both words can be used with the same meaning, враньё sounding informal and ложь sounding formal.
