Is it safe to say that (1) puts more emphasis on which book is mine:

The sentence underlines that the book is mine and not yours. "This book is mine." If you want to underline something, especially in written form, put the word at the end of the sentence. If you speak, you can put emphasis with intonation.
and (2) is more neutral in emphasis: stresses that it's my book and not yours? (I'm sure intonation can change the emphasis as well, though.

It's just a neutral phrase. Without any context I can't say what it stresses. "This is my book" - what is stressed here? Use intonation if you want to underline something. :)

Ah yeah, I think I remember reading about that somewhere, how putting words at the end can add emphasis.

Hi! I need a help. Is the word легко pronounced [liex'ko] (as Wiktionary says)?
Is the group of consonants гk always pronounced [xk]?

Thank you in advance!

Ciao! Wiki is right, though I pronounce it more like [lʲixko].
This group is quite rare, the only other word I can think of is мягко/мягкий and г is pronounced like х here as well.

Spasibo Lada! (sorry, I'm using my mobile, so I am not able to type the Cyrillic alphabet now!!).

I know that the letter e - as you have written - is pronounced ji in that word. The reason is that it is in an unstressed syllable. Is that right?

Can't you add Russian? Adding new language seems to be easy at least in iPhone - Arabic, Greek, Chinese, Hindi etc.

I hope this is the right place to ask, but where has everyone been getting their listening practice from? Most of the books that seem to be the best don't include companion audio, so while I can listen to podcasts and movies, I'd like to hear some of the sentences I'll be learning as well. :hmm:

Most of my listening practice is from my friends/native speakers, in fact :wink:
Listening is definitely the most difficult aspect of learning a language for me, but it's also the most important in my opinion. And I haven't found a better, more natural way than having a conversation with someone who speaks the language fluently.

Of course, listening to music and podcasts (and other media which includes spoken Russian, such as a TV show, film, or even a Russian-language youtube video) helps as well.

It doesn't occur in many words, but AFAIK it does, and also in Бог.

If I'm not mistaken, final-position Г always devoices simply to Х and not К or a combination of these. (например: Бог - 'Бох', снег - 'снех') Someone please correct me on this if it is wrong.

Not, always, Бог seems to be an exception. Снег [sʲnʲek]. I've never heard снех though it might be Ukrainian affected pronunciation, but I'm not sure.

спасибо! Thank you for your correction of my English sentence and for your answer.


Another question: почиму г в "его" и сегодня = [v]? (In English) Why the letter г is pronounced v in его and сегодня and in the endings -его -oго? Did the pronunciation changed with time, but spelling did not? If this is the answer, why did this take place only in some words?

You're right, pronunciation changed but spelling is still the same.

сегодня = сего + дня.
сего = genitive case of сей (outdated word for "this" which is still used in fixed expressions)
As only in genitive ending Г is pronounced as В, case of сегодня is logical :)
