Phrase translation

I was reading a book by Tolstoy called the Death of Ivan Ilyich, and was looking up how the translation was done for a certain passage in the book. The phrase is:

“И голос отвечал: а так, ни зачем.”
Google translation: “And the voice answered: and so, no reason.”
Book translation: “and the voice answered: for no reason - they just are so”

My question is regarding the phrase “а так.” It looks like this phrase changes its meaning per English translations depending on the context. What does this phrase typically mean in Russian and how is it used, is there a consistent English equivalent to this phrase, and what does it mean in the context of the quote I gave above?

If you need more context, please let me know. Thank you, sorry if this is a dumb question, I know very very little Russian.

Re:Your strategies for learning a new language
Finding a study partner does help a lot. I haven't found any but I definitely see the benefit. I do try to speak as much as I can though. I keep a journal where I only write in that target language. I speak to my self and listen and sing songs I listen to aloud.

Re: past tense/future tense in Japanese
Hi Laney,

you might find the English Wikipedia page on Japanese verb conjugations ( to be helpful. It looks like the Japanese imperfective aspect would generally be used to express the English future tense (note that it’s also generally used to express the English present tense, so context would determine which tense is intended), and the Japanese perfective aspect would generally be used to express the English past tense.

Note that there isn’t a one-to-one mapping between tense and aspect; for example, in English, the progressive aspect can be expressed with any tense — the past progressive (e.g. “I was eating”), the present progressive (e.g. “I am eating”), and the future progressive (e.g. “I shall be eating”).

Re:Your strategies for learning a new language
i usually study on my own, using a few apps here and there. it is also helpful if you find someone who is studying the same language, and for you two to find time to study together. i have a friend that i know quite well who is studying japanese, and we see eachother almost everyday (we go to the same school), and we both study together during our lunch. otherwise, finding textbooks on how to learn the language you’d like is helpful as well. i haven’t personally done it, burn mt previously mentioned friend has, and it helped them a lot. also, there are a few helpful apps out there that i’ve found that have helped a ton. the most useful one for me personally is called “Memrise”, and i highly suggest it. flash cards help me a lot since memorization is quite easy for me, but there are lots of other studying tips out there, just find one that works best for you.

Re:Your strategies for learning a new language
I study French and Chinese. I agree that they are not that easy languages to study but if there is a will, there is a way. Of course learning grammar and vocabulary is very important but to master a language you need speak and listen to it a lot. As for me, I watch short movies, cartoons, listen to songs. Also my French teacher is French and my Chinese teacher is Chinese. So you need to make friends who are natives as well and practice with them the languages you study a lot.

Is this the correct English to Hebrew translation?
I need to confirm a translation from english text to hebrew.

The phrase is "live with cause and greater effect"
The translation I am receiving is : לחיות עם סיבה השפעה גדולה יותר

is this considered the correct translation?
