Sample text

Spelling rule 2 о is replaced by е in unstressed position after ж, ч, ш, щ, ц: н мец ‘German’, instr. sing. н мцем, gen. pl. н мцев Spelling rule 3 Initial и is replaced by ы following a prefix ending in a consonant: impf. игр ть/pf. сыгр ть ‘to play’ интер сный ‘interesting’, небезынтер сный ‘not uninteresting’ (for exceptions see 28 (3)(c)) Spelling rule 4 The prefixes без-/бес-; вз-, воз-/вс-, вос-; из-/ис-; раз-/рас- are spelt with з before voiced consonants, voiced sonants or vowels and with с before unvoiced consonants: безз бый ‘toothless’ but бескон чный ‘infinite’; взлет ть ‘to take off ’ but всход ть ‘to rise’; изб ть ‘to beat up’ but исп ть ‘to sup’; разобр ть ‘to dismantle’ but расцеп ть ‘to uncouple’.

2) The suffix -ся is usually pronounced [sm] in the infinitive (м ться ‘to wash’) and the present tense (м ется ‘he washes’), though an alternative soft pronunciation [Jm] is also found in the second-person singular and first-person plural. (3) [Jm] is preferred in participles (сме щийся [Jm] ‘laughing’), the imperative (не см йся ‘don’t laugh’) and the past tense (он сме лся ‘he was laughing’) — except for forms in -сся or -зся (п сся [2passm] ‘was grazing’). g. g. ти [2eKo] ‘these’, весь [LeJ] ‘all’).

Note Unstressed initial и and э and conjunction и are pronounced [p] after a preposition or other word ending in a hard consonant (see 3 (6)): в Ит лию [v1p2taFoju] ‘to Italy’, брат идёт к Ив ну [brat1p2Bot k1p2vanu] ‘my brother is on his way to see Ivan’, над экв тором [nmd1p2kvatmrmm] ‘above the equator’. g. Госизд т [ Mosp2zdat] ‘State Publishing House’. 5 5 Pronunciation 7 Hard and soft consonants With the exception of ж, ц and ш, which are invariably hard, and ч and щ, which are invariably soft, all Russian consonants can be pronounced hard or soft.
