Flemish commentators say:

Kour-NEE-ko-va
Sha-RA-po-va

Where's the stress in Russian?

And i've got another question.
Is it KOS-tanic or Kos-TA-nic?
I always thought the first one was right but yesterday someone stressed it like the second one. So?

Well i was told it would be...

Kour-NIK-ova
Sha-RAP-ova


apprently your not supposed to emphaise the end of the name (like the ova,eva,aya etc.)

THat is the question. you have to know,
;)
It is easier if you can see the name written in cyrillic (russian alfabet)

Lolas:i would bet it is KOS-ta-nic, othervise it would have been Kas - TA-nic

In Latvian the stress is always on the 1st! :D

there could be garumzime, unfortunately in Latvian there's not always a rule if you need it or not! :( That's usually the biggest proublem! ;)
