*** Get that Russian recording with Lemeshev that somebody suggested and you
should be able to figure how to pronounce the words: compare the English
transliteration with what you're hearing and things should come together.
If that doesn't work, however, e-mail me privately. I speak Russian. You
can call me on the phone and I'll tell you how to pronounce things.
