How to say: I donТt have (much more useful than СI haveТ!)
Prepared with the help of Ruslingua

” мен€ нет...

Now the problem with this construction, is that нет requires the following word to be in the genitive case. WeТve highlighted the basic singular endings, but this is not supposed to be a grammar lesson so youТll need to look the rest up if youТre interested.

Lack of basic items (feminine):
у мен€ нетЕ
Е ручки (a pen)
Е зажигалки (a lighter)
Е кредитной карты (a credit card)
Е сдачи (change)

and some masculine ones:
у мен€ нетЕ
Е платочка (a tissue)
Е с собой паспорта (my passport with me)
Е его номера телефона (his phone number)
Е с собой зонта (an umbrella with me)
Е точного адреса (the exact address)
Е дл€ неЄ подарка на день рождени€ (a birthday present for her)

Material goods that may be lacking:
у мен€ нетЕ
Е очков (my glasses)
Е часов (my watch)
Е денег на телефоне (any money on my phone)
Е ключей от офиса (the keys to the office)
Е разрешени€ на работу (a work permit)

and some figurative ones:
у мен€ нетЕ
Е времени (time)
Е на него времени (time for him)
Е сил, € слишком устал (the energy, IТm too tired)
Е к вам вопросов (any questions for you)
