/i`dusma`jemtova`riS:@m/ 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. -------ferko Ferenc Gy.
