Does the rule that "ш" cannot be soft (unpalatalized) apply when it is followed by a soft sign "шь"?
In the famous song "Никого не Будет в Доме" from "Ирнония Судьбы", there's a line "...из которых хлопья шьют." Beautiful imagery, but how do you pronounce "шьют"?
In the movie, I distinctly hear "шълют" (unpalatalized ш, then л): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n24BCHXB9V0
I've also always wondered how the 2nd person verb endings are supposed to be pronounced: представлаешь, говоришь, etc.
