Russian Language

I've talked before about how difficult the Russian language is. It is hard to speak and ard to understand. I can read it, though and that helps in the metro or grocery store. BUT I don't always know where the emphasis goes on a word. For intance the word flour. Mooka.  I have been pronouncing it MOO kah. Eler Simmons informed me today that it means torture. Flour is moo KAH. same spelling, different emphasis. HMMMMM. I wonder how many times I have asked where the torture is?? :0)
