    Best resource to find the word stress (accent)?

    Oh these words and their unpredictable stresses!

    Is there a BETTER resource somewhere online for Russian words than Wiktionary? About 1/3 of the words I look for aren't in Wiktionary...

    I've been looking for the stress for "медленнее" for 10 minutes.... and I still don't know!
    I'll just learn this expression anyway....

    медленнее (on the first syllable)
    "Медленнее" is the comparative of "медленно," I think it's the reason you can't find it in some dictionaries.

    Johanna, have you read this message? I mean the last its part (I added it later).

    There is also "Полная акцентуированная парадигма по А. А. Зализняку," but it's a very big file and sometimes it slows down my computer. The site where you can download it:
    http://speakrus.ru/dict/index.htm
    Find "Полная акцентуированная парадигма по А. А. Зализняку" and click on the word "Скачать" under the title.

    P. S. Please correct my mistakes.

    Use www.gramota.ru
    There is that word there, and the stress is indicated.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Thanks Zaya and Olja!
    I'll be careful to check these dictionaries before I ask again.

    Юханна, this doc may be of some use to you: http://vial.david.perso.neuf.fr/SITE/LA ... CCENTS.doc
    It deals with stress shifts within substantives declension. Every possible scheme is (supposedly) shown here. There are a few comments in French but nothing essential.
    (Yes you asked about adjectives so this is somehow off-topic but anyway it could be useful. I'm not the one who made it so this is not spam I think. )

    The various dictionaries at mail.ru also mark the stressed vowel.
