    Maybe he meant the emphasis to be on "word" there, rather than "Russian".

    I don't know what part of the sentence kalinka meant to emphasize but what I do know for sure is that I've never heard the word госпужар before. It must be very old-fashioned!

    It's actually "госпожа", just transliterated very unusually.

    You're right on the money!!! I took a gander at the original post after reading your reply and worked it out!
