Editing declensions: If there are two forms for a word, please separate them by a comma.

Accents: Mark the accent with a ' character behind the vowel, e.g. ру'чки. Leave out the stress when it is unambiguous, which is when the word contains ё or only one vowel (the vowels are а, я, э, е, ы, и, о, ё, у and ю).
