Many thanks to everyone who responded to my enquiry regarding the new
Rusyn orthography, particularly Don Reindl and Elaine Rusinko, who
were kind enough to mail me copies of relevant articles.

I have put a jpeg graphic online at


This  graphic shows the   full Rusyn   orthography as  recognised  and
officially adopted in Slovakia in 1995. The  graphic does not indicate
phonetic values for the letters, which are  not a consideration in the
project I am working on.  I will leave  the graphic on our website for
the next two months.

My principal sources for this orthography are

_Orfograichnyi Slovnyk Rusyn'skoha Iazyka._ Rusynska obroda.
      Presov, 1994.

Jabur, Vasyl'. 'Select Aspects of the Rusyn Language Norm
      in Slovakia' in _A New Slavic Language is Born: the Rusyn
      Literary Language of SLovakia._ ed. Paul Robert Magosci.
      Columbia University Press. New York. 1996.
