    How would I translate 'I'm exhausted'
    My attempt:
    я изнеможён
    Thanks in advance.

    It's highly literary style, I've never heard it in conversational Russian. I would suggest "я вы́жат (вы́жата) как лимо́н", "я измо́тан (измо́тана)", "я о́чень уста́л (уста́ла)".

    Hi,

    the correct form is измождён
    and concerning the translation itself it all (as usual) depends on the context. Измождён is correct, but not very coomon in everyday speech. More informally I'd say я без сил/я совсем без сил, sometimes it could be я обессилел, but anyways some context would be cool

    What do you mean? That the word изнеможён doesn't exist?

    Ой, простите, совсем запарилась и прочла в исходном сообщении "изможён" - ошиблась, каюсь. "Изнеможён" существует, конечно.

    The context would be I'm really very tired.

    Then my first reply would be appropriate.
