    Жизнь

    I am scanning a poem by Pushkin, "26 of May 1886." I am stuck on the word Жизнь, I can't tell if it consists of two syllables or one. I am tempted to say one stressed and one unstressed (Жиз-нь). Any ideas?

    I have no Idea what poem you mean. Жизнь in Nominative has one syllable. Though in verse different situations may happen.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
