    Russian word for "things"

    Здравствуйте!

    I am studying Pimsleur Russian and they have a section where they pronounce "many things" that sounds in Russian like "muhNOguh fsTHIvoh". I know that "many" in Russian is много but I cannot find anywhere in Russian dictionaries or translation sites that have a word pronounced like "fsthivoh" for the word "things". Does anyone know what this word actually translates into in Russian and how it is spelled with the Cyrillic alphabet? Спасибо!

    мно́го всего́

    literally, ‘lots of everything’. всего is genitive of всё ‘all, everything’.

    Note that the г letter is pronounced as [ɡ] in много, but as [v] in всего.
    [ˈmnoɡə fsʲɪˈvo]
