Berry, Thomas E.
This textbook was designed for undergraduate students who are interested in a basic study of Russian typewriting with particular emphasis on the following business documents: the memorandum, applications, statements, declarations, business letters, receipts, calculations, agreements, inquiries, references, certificates, basic documents used for trading with the USSR, contracts, and telegrams. Each of the ten lessons contains the following elements: (1) the introduction of a type of business document in Russian; (2) an example of the document in Russian and in English; (3) introduction of letters of the typewriter keyboard; (4) an exercise on verbs commonly used in business transactions; (5) homework exercises for translation practice; and (6) vocabulary. The business letter is stressed and translation exercises on it are provided with an emphasis on importing and exporting terminology. Examples of actual business letters are given in the appendix as well as examples of all the documents mentioned. (Author/AMH)
