what is дурной / дурно

Привет всем!

I came across the following phrase: вам дурно? and I'm not sure how to translate it because дурак / дура mean "a fool" and from the context I guess that it's not about that :)
By the way, what is валять? from валять дурака

Спасибо!

"вам дурно?" means "Are you sick?"

"валять дурака" is idiomatic expression. It means to do silly things.


thanks! ;D
