Hello Adrian! 
По правилам орфоэпии на месте звонких согласных ты произносишь соответствующие глухие.
 на месте ж- (ш) : багаж- бага(ш); морж-мор(ш)
 I hope you can understand at Russian , if no, tell me I'll  try to explain at English.. 
 Good luck! 

 

на месте ж- (ш) 
 на месте б- (п) 
 на месте в-(ф)
 на месте г- (к)
 на месте з-(с)
 на месте д-(т) 

Hi Lucy:

I don't understand Russian yet.  It seems you are referring to a Russian grammar rule regarding the changing pronunciation of letters. This also happens in English but not in Spanish.  Spanish has other complications.

Thanks,  Adrián
