Re: Translation needed: Russian script to English #translation
In going thru old message I came across yours. I am not a nativetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
speaker, but when I was a grad student I took an interest in Russian
calligraphy and practiced it for my own amusement. I can't help noting
that this example is actually a very fine 19th Century scribal script.
Since my eyes are 80 years old I would need to enlarge the sample to
read thru it, but I read the first word perezhivayushchaya very easily.
The strokes observe the thick/thin norms, but are a little too "inky"
without enlargement. You are not the only post-1918 native speaker with
problems--I think you have to be used to reading it to get it easily.
Cyrillic calligraphy is I am afraid a lost art.
Yours, Jules Levin
