Idu s mojem tovarishchem
I go with my comrade.
They are pronounced simply as /s/ or /k/ alone, but sort of added to the
front of the following word where it is possible. That is to
say, "s mojem", "k torzhevstvu" and so on. Anyplace where Russian allows
[s] or [k] before something else, it is pronounced like if it were part of
that word. Speaking slowly, the above sentence would be /i`du sma`jem
tova`iS:@m/. There are places where the forms [so] and ?[ka] are used, but
I don't know where...Serbian uses always the [sa] and [ka] form, except in
fast speech, when they are rendered as /s/ or /k/ before vowels, also note
that [ka] is not much used in Serbian.
