    establishment, cornerstone

    The establishment of solid corporate principles should be the cornerstone of each corporation.

    In my minde I had the word: основание
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    In russian there is almost direct idiom: "краеугольный камень". Edge/corner/stone. I do not know why "edge" is also here.

    Установление прочных корпоративных принципов должно быть краеугольным камнем каждой корпорации.

    I always forget this rule.
    The correct pronounciation is: краjeугольный or краэугольный

    кра/j/eуго́льный phonemically.
    But it’ş commonly pronounced as кра[и]уго́льный without the [j] sound or with a very weak one (like other unstressed је’s).

    кра[э]угольный is definitely wrong.
    «Е» after a vowel is pronounced like [э] only in the word проект. (I have no idea why. The latin ancestor does have a ‘j’ in it).
