I don't know if this is something that should be posted in the foreign languages section or not, there is a note not to post in the slavic languages section until the coding issue gets dealt with.  So I will post it here and if it needs to be moved then sorry for putting it in the wrong spot.

But anyway, I have a Russian friend and she needs to translate a word for her English class and I can understand the word a bit in Russian but I cannot figure out how to use it in English slang, which is what her teacher is after.  The word is: спиногрыз.  It looks like it is an annoying person or something like that.  I was hoping one of the people on the forum more fluent in Russian than I am and more fluent in English than she is could help me figure out what this is!

Thanks,

I think it refers to someone who is a "freeloader" or sponges off others.

Liza, Stashko, thank you.  We were talking about it for 50 minutes and I could think of nothing other than maybe "bum" or "gadfly".  Thanks again.
