The expert called the most difficult words for Russians in the “Total dictation”

MOSCOW, 10 APR — RIA Novosti. The most difficult for the Russians in the “Total dictation” were the words “cognac” and “starlet”, said the Chairman of the expert Council of the action Natalia koshkareva at a press conference dedicated to the results of the action.

“The most difficult we had such an offer, in which both used two words — sturgeon and cognac. So I think that the word “cognac” made mistakes, because most of our members are ladies, or girls that are not so often used this drink. And I want to say that “cognac” is written with a soft and not a solid mark,” said koshkareva.
