    Counting to 2000....:D

    I was wondering if someone could give me the correct pronunciation of the numbers : сто, двести, треста, четыреста, пятсоть, шестсоть, семьсоть, восемьсот, девятьсот, тысяча, and whatever the word is for 2000, im not sure how its spelled, dont want to take a stab at murdering the word. THanks.

    There is no ь at the end of 500, 600, 700

    2000 = две тысячи

    You must stress "-сот": пятьсот. Here "пять-" will sound like "пить". Further: шестьсот. Here "шесть-" will sound like "шис".
