Ukrainian Alphabet & Pronunciation

The Ukranian alphabet comprises thirty-three letters. Twenty letters represent consonants (б, г, ґ, д, ж, з, к, л, м, н, п, р, с, т, ф, х, ц, ч, ш, щ), ten vowels (а, е, є, и, і, ї, о, у, ю, я), and two semivowels (й/yot, and в). The soft sign ь has no meaning when written by itself, but when written after a consonant, it indicates that the consonant is soft.
