"Never write unstressed 'o' after the letters, ж, ч, ш, щ, ц, instead use 'e'"
So are we supposed to still pronounce it like an "o"?
I know that the answer is yes when the vowel is stressed, for example:
but what about when it is unstressed? for example:
Also, since most people write "е" instead "ё" even when there is supposed to be stress,
how are you supposed to know if the letter "e" is pronounced like an actual "e" or like an "o"?
Why doesn't Russian have an additional letter for soft o, or just write "ио" or "ьо" instead of "е/ё"?
