Re: Help in locating towns/cities/villages in Hungarian region of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and in Eastern Poland/Western Russia or Ukraine
In a recent reply to the above question, it was written that : “there is no G in Russian and H is used instead”. Actually it’s the other way round. G is used in Russian where in the Roman alphabet one finds an H, i.e. Herman would be rendered German (hard G) in Russian – in Cyrillic Герман; hologram = голограмма (2 Cyrillic Gs in that word).
