It is not proceeded by a vowel, why is it nyervный, i checked on ru wikipedia its nyervный I really still dont understand the rules of e[je] im so confused 😰😰😰😰

1 Answer 1


It is pronounced without j, because:

  • there is no vowel or ъ/ь before е,
  • it does not start a word.

The consonant before becomes soft, н'.
