    Well I'd trust you there. I'm still learning so my pronounciation is probably off.

    не путать с "вайнах"
    Оригинал: Call me ASAP.

    This is a transliteration, but done wrong. When you transliterate, you write O as O, no matter how it's pronounced:

    Poydyomte tantsevat'

    If you're going to be a smart-ass, at least try to be an accurate smart-ass.

    "танцевать" is actually pronounced as tantsyvat', some people pronounce it as "tantsavat'"

    If you're English, you say smart-arse*, not smart-ass

    * or clever git.
