All the sillier is our hyperdox friend, as the H in Herman is actually G in Greek and Slavonic - Germanos/German. No daseia required. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I wish Michal would embed his. It would make it easier to give credit where credit is due.

All recent ones were mad by that Ukrainian guy. They are nice but he makes to many of them to handle them all.

In pretty much all of the Southern dialects of Russian from Odessa to Atrakhan, г is h.  If I'm not mistaken the "proper" pronunciation of Church Slavonic is supposed to be something closer to this than the Northern Russian г. In practice I've almost never heard a priest here mumble Church Slavonic without г = h and the vowel reduction of standard Russian.

In practise I've almost never heard a priest that does not do that.

Must be related to the age of the person. I know folks from those regions, including a member of my extended family, who are all in their seventies and eighties, whose г is g, not h.

A typo on my part.  I meant to say that in practice every priest I've heard serve in Slavonic in Ukraine basically mumbles it in a local Russian accent.

Age and when they left are probably factors as well.  In the last 40 - 50 years migrants to the cities in this belt have more and more been coming from the surrounding countryside rather than Russia proper.  Even now accent is markedly different between someone who grew up in the city and say 20 km outside of it.

I want a samovar. I know precisely what they are for. It is a bummer that they are so expensive :(
