How to order wine in Russian. Digh-tyeh, puh-zhah-lub-shuh, stah-kahn kran-
snuh-vuh vee-nah? That's how to order a glass of red wine. Let's break that
down. Digh-tyeh, it's the accent on the first syllable. The second word,
puh-zhah-lih-shuh, hits the accent on the second syllable. The third word,
stah-kahn, which means cup, hits the accent on the second syllable. The
forth word, krah-snuh-vuh, which means red, hits the accent on the first
syllable.

Vee-nah is the last word and it hit the accent on the second syllable and
that means wine. Bring it all together, digh-tyeh, puh-zhah-lub-shuh, stah-
kahn kran-snuh-vuh vee-nah? One more time nice and slow, digh-tyeh, puh-
zhah-lub-shuh, stah-kahn kran-snuh-vuh vee-nah? Now, we'll say it at a more
conversational pace, digh-tyeh, puh-zhah-lub-shuh, stah-kahn kran-snuh-vuh

Now, if you wanted to order white wine, it's very similar, of course, to
ordering red wine. Digh-tyeh, puh-zhah-lub-shuh, stah-kahn buej-luh-vuh vee-
nah? So, we'll just focus on that word, byeh-luh-vuh, which means white.
The accent is on the first syllable, byeh-luh-vuh. One more time, byeh-luh-
