    Pronouncing an old proverb

    I an very interested in Russian proverbs.

    My favorite is "Trust but Verify" I have a spelling of the words, in English letters, but not the English phonetics. The middle wout is "no" but is the "O" pronounced as "AW" from the word LAW or as "U" as in the word "NUT"? I think I have the two words, but could probably use some help with them too.

    Thank you.

    the middle wout? what on Earth are you talking about?
    "trust but verify"
    "Доверяй, но проверяй"
    "doveryai, no proveryai"

    oh you meant the middle WORD
    no - as in NOT
    Hei, rett norsken min og du er død.
    I am a notourriouse misspeller. Be easy on me.
    Пожалуйста! Исправляйте мои глупые ошибки (но оставьте умные)!
    Yo hablo español mejor que tú.
