    это уже где-то выкладывалось? По-моему, это очень полезный материал. Может быть, его выложить в качестве начальной темы в этом разделе? Можно пообсуждать правильность описаний и образцов произношения звуков.

    д' sounds a bit like з to me... Damn these foreign ears

    edit: So hang on... most of the soft letters are pronounced by touching the tongue to the lower teeth and saying the letter less emphatically? There's probably more to it than that, but... is that it put very basically?

    to me it sounds like дьзь. That can be his individual way of pronunciation, but it can be the result of exagerated separate pronunciation.
    most of the soft letters are pronounced by touching the tongue to the lower teeth and saying the letter less emphatically?
    Touching lower teeth is not obligatory, but it often happens because the middle part of the toungue is rased towards the hard palatum (which is behind the alveolars. I would say that soft consonants are tenser and more audible.
