You're really going about this the wrong way, Don. Eyebrows should be sauteed in bacon fat with garlic and onions and served with parsley. Sheesh! LOL

Как сказать по-русски "pilot light"?

Don responds: My dictionary says запальник, but I don't think I've seen one here. I've seen stoves with electrical ignition devices. My own stove has to be light with a match.

Of course singular accusative of конфорка is коннфорку. Edit pls.

Don responds: Fixed!

The word you gave me for pilot light, "запальник", wasn't in my dictionary, so thank you for that. I did find "запал" which can be defined as "fuse" or "primer" which makes sense.

I also consulted a larger dictionary I have which is Russian-English only and found a colloquial phrase "под запал" which translates as "in the heat of the moment".

I use it for several years already ind find it to be the most informative resource online.

Включи, not Вклочи

Thank you for the site, Don. It's fun. I'm enjoying :)

Don responds: Thanks, Natalya! I'm always grateful when people point out errors.

I actually think there is a difference here between Russian and American cultures. Americans get pissed off, generally, when you point out errors. Russians take it plainly. I like the Russian way better.
