I'm currently working through 5000 Russian Words, put out by Slavica, in order to refresh my vocabulary.

This dictionary lists (almost) all of the inflectional forms of its words. This isn't necessary for regularly inflected words, but it's useful when it comes to irregularities that are overlooked in regular English-Russian dictionaries--like which words have a partitive.

морж walrus
мороженое ice cream
мороз cold, freezing weather, freezing temperature (takes partitive –у)
моряк sailor
Москва Moscow
москвич Muscovite
москвичка Muscovite
московичий Moscow, Muscovite (short forms avoided, no comparative)
мост bridge (end-stressed)
мотор motor, engine
мотоцикл motorcycle
муж husband, man (archaic/poetic)
мужество courage
мужской masculine, male
