Ah, you know...
Myortvye dushi ... Мёртвые души, Gogol's great novel, is not pronounced Mee-ohrt-vee-ay doo-shee. It's not.
Why doesn't somebody look up how to pronounce words for Alex? I'm starting to think the only ones he does properly are the French ones.
Jeepers. They just dethroned a champion because he wrote "Angel & Demon" for the movie, instead of "Angels and Demons". Consider how badly some of them have spelled the "correct" answer, that's cold.
Anyway, back to my original point. It's Mjortvyje, /'mʲortvɨɪ/ - three syllables, not four, stressed on the first syllable, and no eees or ays.
