Did you ever wish all Russian books and websites had stress marks in them? That would be nice, wouldn't it? As you probably know, word stress in Russian is very important and can affect the meaning of a word. One of my Russian students once approached me with the question, “What does za-SU-kha mean?” I was puzzled for a moment while my voice recognition subsystem struggled to find a match that was not vulgar or obscene. Then I looked over at the newspaper he was reading. The word he was looking at was simply ZA-sukha (засуха) meaning ‘drought’. Thank God! One misplaced stress and you may sound like you’re swearing!
Luckily, there is a tool that adds stress marks for you to any web page or any piece of Russian text that you can copy and paste. To get a web page stress marked, just copy its URL and stick it into russiangram.com. Hit Enter and you will see the same page with stress marks. Voila! Now you can enjoy your favourite Russian novel or surf the web while learning new words with the correct stress.
