    Help w/ word identification.

    For a school play I am required to remember certain Russian words. I would like to know what these words are. The only tool the script provides however are just how they are pronounced. Either that, or they are not Russian words at all but just sound like they are. Either way, your help is greatly appreciated. Below are a list of the pronunciations.
    Fsyaw byeh-zah-pah'-snah
    Chu-rah-shaw
    Ee-dee-ant
    Prah-klat-nee-ya

    I'm not sure that it is in Russian. The word "Prah-klat-nee-ya" reminds of the Russian word "прохладнее" that means "cooler (adj.)".
    Could you please occasionally correct my stupid errors!

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    byeh-zah-pah'-snah - безопасно ("safe", like in "It's safe here")
    Chu-rah-shaw - хорошо ("good", "ok", etc.)
    Ee-dee-ant - идёт? идиот? идея?
