Russian Spelling Rules, Е and O after Ц

April 30, 2018 | Tags: Russian spelling

Did you know that, if the ending of a noun is stressed, we use the vowel о after ц in the Instrumenal case. However, we use the vowel е if the ending is not stressed.

For example,

Конец (end) – концóм

Месяц (month) – мéсяцем

Заяц (hair) – зáйцем

Отец (father) – отцóм
