    Good website to figure out which syllables are accented??

    Help! I'm learning completely online, and I'm looking for a site to find the accented syllables. Not a voice one, either, something that helps with ALL words if possible.

    Does something like that exist? You know, like how an English dictionary has pronunciation guides after the words?

    Either click one of the links that say KOI8 or Windows, or right-click inside the frame that isn't working and change the encoding to one of these manually.

    What? What does it matter, anyway? I wasn't asking a question or attacking anyone.

    I just don't understand what you meant by the statement.

    In Russian, one would say,"Proehali."

    Speaking of проехали sounding words, I once saw a movie were the communist soldiers were chasing two bad guys (a Swedish and a Finnish spy) and some officer shouted "поехали! поехали!" then they went after the spies and they got one, and they didn't know there was a second one who was hiding somewhere. Now why is that, considering the и ending in поехали

    In Russian you can sometimes make an imperative in past tense, for example
    "давай, пошёл!" (Come on, go on!)
    "Ну-ка, быстро открыл дверь!" (sounds rather rude -- "Get the door opened, quickly!")
    Пошли! -- Let's go!

    Проехали may mean "this is over, we won't discuss it anymore". Literary it means "we passed". You also may say "Поезд ушёл" (the train has gone)

    But it doesn't conjugate the verbs, or show the verb stem. And PROMT won't show "yo", so I can't even tell that way.

    Any help?

    the site conjugates the verbs , you must type the verb you want to conjucate (in russian alphabets) . as for the ( ё ) , it is expressed by the letter ( e" ) . so try it again .

    Yet another trick to the website: you have to spell the verb in small case letters to get the conjugation. If you have a capital in it, no conjugation.
