The Cyrillic alphabet article is way too long. I am splitting it in a manner similar to Latin alphabet and Alphabets derived from the Latin. There doesn't seem to be a standard naming scheme for this type of article, and I'm uncomfortable using "derived" here since it seems rather politically loaded (I don't know enough about the history of Cyrillic). Feel free to rename/edit/etc. Franzeska 16:35, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Bosnian language section[edit]

Removed the "but Cyrillic is seldom if ever used in today's practice" as it is utter nonsense.
Every formal text produced by government or government bodies has to have a Cyrillic copy/be published in Cyrillic as well, and Cyrillic is still being taught in primary schools - a practice required by law. (Page 2, act 7. Sorry, Bosnian only.)-- (talk) 14:57, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Cyrillic alphabet distribution map[edit]

According to this map, Serbia is "the country that use Cyrillic as the one main script". That's not true, Standard Serbian language uses both Cyrillic and Latin script.-- (talk) 20:49, 30 March 2011 (UTC)


I suggest linking the Cyrillic alphabet page to the Latin alphabet page. Perhaps also the Greek alphabet page though not with much priority. It's good to link the Cyrillic alphabet page to Chinese and Japanese syllabaries. Speling12345 (talk) 3:05, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Bulgarian / Article's division[edit]

Bulgarian is indeed a South Slavic language, but her script never got touched by Vuk KARADZIC´'s 1817 reform.

Better division: Traditional scripts vs. Vuk Stefanović Karadžić's scripts, or the like.

Why is Türkmen missing? == also Azeri missing![edit]

Türkmen with 5 million people! - True, trying to switch to Latin - but like Âzerbaijân and Özbekistân, both scripts currently in use. So why?

Belarussian alphabet[edit]

Under the heading "Belarussian alphabet" the diagram shows a curly letter between Ya and the apostrophe (right at the end). This letter is not attested in the Belarussian alphabet link, does not appear on Belarussian keyboards, nor have I been able to find it by typing "Belarussian alphabet" into Google image search or visiting websites that provide resources for learning Belarussian. I would venture to say it is a made-up letter, but am not an expert – if someone with a comfortable aptitude in the relevant realm could skance it over and affirm, one would be muchly grateful. If it is a made-up letter, a new alphabet image needs to be produced and uploaded, then added to the page. — R160K (talk) 14:49, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

It's being displayed as a Unicode character so it can hardly be made up. According to Wiktionary it's an Abkhaz letter. CodeCat (talk) 15:28, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, ҩ is an Abkhaz h, borrowed from Arabic . Removed. —Stephen (talk) 19:53, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
