    Default Kurin

    Hello. I have a question. What does the word "Kurin"? This is probably an abbreviation or slang. Please help

    Hello, and welcome to Using English.

    You posted this question after another person's post, and it was completely unrelated. Please start a new thread for anything that is not directly related to the original post.

    I am completely unfamiliar with the word Kurin. I've never seen it before. Sorry.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    If it helps, I found this

    Kurin (Ukrainian: курінь) is a military term that was established by the cossacks.
    (Wikipedia).

    In what context did you encounter this word?

    That doesn't mean anything. Where did you find it?
