    Phoenetic Issues

    I am having trouble taking the soft consonants (with a y sound). I also want to hear the example usage of ы. Could anyone please speak the soft consonants and this yery into a microphone for me?

    Hello, penguinhead

    This is my recording for you with hard and soft pronunciation of some consonants: http://sayandpost.com/rrmoc40sx3.mp3
    I read examples from http://www.linguarus.com/ru/program/phonetics/2/ at the bottom of the page. If you need more examples with other consonants, I will gladly record more words for you.

    Now, the recording of Ы: http://sayandpost.com/rrmoc40sx4.mp3

    This is what I pronounce here:

    ы, ы, ы, крыша, крыса, быстро, сыро, мосты, кресты, шест́ы, сын́ы, р́аны, др́амы.

    “Шесты” and “сыны” have two ы’s each. Accents in the last words mark the actual prominence of one ы. I just wanted to show that ы may not take stress and sound a bit different.

    P. S. Sorry, the accent marks don’t really work with the forum.
