edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Russian language:


Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Verify : the whole article especially History section
  • Other : rewrite Grammar section (add info about Russian grammar's specificities, such as exactness, difficulty to learn by foreigners, etc.). Also borrowing of words, due to Peter I (who spoke Dutch himself and started bringing Europeans to Russia) should be mentioned. Russian has significant number of Dutch and French words, most of which are modified either due to grammar or simply because "plain people" couldn't pronounce them (or maybe just mocked them up).

New audio file request[edit]

I would like an example of somebody talking in Russian on the article. Sausagea1000 (talk) 13:42, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Spelling of the language name in Russian[edit]

The first page of the article shows both ру́сский язы́к and русский язык, which is right and what is the difference? Jony (talk) 13:15, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

@RosenneJ: The acute accents in ру́сский язы́к show which syllable is stressed. They are sometimes written (mostly in dictionaries or books for language learners) and sometimes not. — Eru·tuon 18:27, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
@Erutuon: Shouldn't this be indicated in the article? After all, it is intended for readers who do not know Russian.--Jony (talk) 13:49, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
@RosenneJ: Sure, but I don't know how this can be indicated unobtrusively. — Eru·tuon 00:46, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
In fact the accents are not part of the orthography, so they may be removed (the stressed syllables are shown in the IPA). Шурбур (talk) 13:49, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
This has been discussed at length at least two times.--Lüboslóv Yęzýkin (talk) 06:48, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Transliterations and/or transcriptions[edit]

Every piece of Cyrillic text poses a problem to a common, non-expert Wikipedia reader if not transliterated or transcribed. I suggest that we add transliterations and/or transcriptions whenever possible. --Pětušek 17:12, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
