Hello,

Re ugol-ugol':

> Isn't it a question of stress, like in zAmok / zamOk ?

No, of course not. There are more examples where the two contrast:
_dal'_ 'vista; faraway place' / _dal_ '(a masculine) gave'. _padal'_
'carrion' / _padal_ '(a masculine) fell' (or 'was falling', imperfective
you know), _zhal'_ '(what a) pity' / _zhal_ 'squeezed' or 'stings
(gen.pl.), _vral'_ 'liar' / _vral_ '(he) lied', _final'_ 'final (of a
syllable) / _final_ 'final (in sport etc.)', _stal'_ 'steel' / _stal_
'(he) became'. Et cetera. There are many more, and Im sure there are
word-medial ones., just can't think of any.
