    Adjetives: Soft Endings

    Hello, I'm curious to know how you pronounce these soft stems: ий, яя, ее, and юю. Ex: горячий, прежняя, прежнюю, будущее
    To disbelieve is easy; to scoff is simple; to have faith is harder.

    Test sentence with those endings:
    Теперешний правитель сверг прежнюю королеву, исполняя свое высшее предназначение

    What happened to the record? It seems as if Rostova is not from Russia

    What record? It's a little soft but plays back just fine.

    The one that Rostova recorded. The quality is fine but what's happened to the sounds in her sentence? Don't they sound akwrad to you?

    Yes, they do but I believe that's just her way of speaking. Everyone is different. She got no accent.

    Here's my try I tried to record it about 4 times 'cause all of the records I made seemed akward to me. I never thought it would so hard.

    I have never heard it before! That's why it seemed a little odd to me. I just listened to my record once more and understood that I could have perfomed a bit better.

    Where is Rostova's record?
    I want to hear the Siberean accent. It must be cute.

    She seems to have deleted her record. What a pity!

    It's probably because people were not nice to her, even if they were kidding.

    I didn't mean to offend anyone. I just said that Rostova's accent sounded odd to me. I did not say it was wrong or something.

    I wasn't kidding. My manner of speaking may sound odd to you as well. But that will be ok with me.
