Usage notesEdit

  • The word ко́фе is masculine, but is often informally treated as neuter: горячее ко́фе. Such usage is usually frowned upon by educated people.
  • The word ко́фе is indeclinable, but may sometimes be declined into some cases, usually for humorous effect: налить кофю (partitive case, rare); нет кофя (genitive); угостить кофем (instrumental).
  • Since the lack of declension is inconvenient for some people, the diminutive forms of ко́фе, кофеёк (kofejók) or the dated form кофий (kofij), are sometimes used.
