    'Чт' words

    From another topic:

    I've wanted to hear examples of 'Чт' words where the Ч is pronounced just as Ч and not Ш to know what the pronounciation sounds like.

    If someone could record the first two words in the quote and any other words that are pronounced the same way I would appreciate it.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    I don't know what they sound like either, but thanks.

    I have more than one idea of what this pronounciation sounds like and one or more probably wrong. Is it supposed to sound sharp or soft?
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    You make a normal Russian Ч like in Читать then follow it by whatever the @@@ing letter is.

    Russian Ч is always soft (palatalised).

    I think it must be чмырить instead of чморить =)

    Does it sound like "черезвычайный" or is it just me?
