GOST - GOST 16876-71, a standard developed by the National Administration for Geodesy and
Cartography at the USSR Council of Ministers.
ISO - scientific transliterations developed by the International Organization for Standardization.
Our default system for Russian, which was used to store all the
Russian texts until April 28, 2014 and was used to generate Cyrillic
on demand, is described below. (We have now switched to storing
everything in Unicode, with transliterations on demand.) If you use
the search for titles and first lines,
you may type in Cyrillic or a transliteration using this system.
E e (or je)
A j is sometimes added for clarity when two vowels are next to each other. For example:
jeshchjo (rather than eshchjo) and mojikh (rather than moikh). Note also that the letter c replaces the more common ts, producing such words as serdce and car'.
