Reading and Writing the Cyrillic System for Siberian Yupik.
Jacobson, Steven A.
This guide is designed for St. Lawrence Islanders (Alaska) wishing to learn the Cyrillic system for writing the Yupik language as used in the Soviet Union. It presumes knowledge of the St. Lawrence Island writing system, and can be used independently or with the help of an instructor. The guide comprises 10 lessons, each of which contains writing and transcription exercises. Lesson topics are: a first group of Cyrillic letters, vowel length, a second group of letters, the apostrophe and "hook," the hard sign, representing special phonemes in the Cyrillic system, Russian words in Yupik and English words in Yupik, and a reading exercise. An answer key is appended. (MSE)
