The Transliteration of Modern Russian for English-Language Publications.
Shaw, J. Thomas
Authors and editors faced with the problem of rendering Russian names or words into English are forced to transliterate the Cyrillic alphabet according to the needs of their readers. This manual presents four systems, ranging from one for works intended for a broad public to one which may be consistently applied in publications requiring orthographic precision. System 1 is suggested for handling personal names and place names in works aimed at the general public. System 2, the Library of Congress system for modern Russian (without diacritical marks), is suggested for works directed primarily at specialists in the social and natural sciences. System 3 is intended for linguists and literary scholars. System 4, the Library of Congress system with diacritical marks, is recommended for certain types of bibliographical publications demanding rigorous precision. (Author/RL)
