|Russian words - I have a question about some Russian pronuntiation,according to my book any Russian word with an ending of ( ъ ) should be pronounce like ( y ), by example:
Дверь == should be pronounced like ( dvyery )
and some people has told me that I should say it without the Y at the end.
Can somebody correct me please?

| - An audio answer to help you come up with a transcription scheme that works for pronunciation:
The "Y" is only a convenience to remind you that it is NOT a sharp "R" like if you wrote without designating the soft sign [ь]: dver
I like to use an apostrophe for this because it is not associated with a letter and serves to remind of the effect on the preceding letter:
