That's why so many Russians underline ш (and draw a short line on top of т) when writing in cursive:
>so many Russians underline ш
Never saw it.
Looks like arabic, really.
Try to write "лишишь" in cursive and you'll see that "дышишь" is OK:)
yes, it's so!
we laught with my friend few days ago about it!
though you know in english there are such words too. for example try to write communication in cursive, and you'll see the same thing:)
My mother told me they had a student named "Шимшилашвилли".
Try writing that in cursive and reading back!
ohh! am sitting here (in my boring room) and writing шишки, лишишь ) That's awesome!
A great topic!
(my comment seems to be offtop, right?)
you're not the only one.
i'm sure many of us do)))

Re: I want to put my 5 copecks as well
It's SO easy to read. Lucky you are with a readable handwriting!
Sometimes I can't understand my own handwriting, espesially, if I wrote down something very quickly. I try to underline and iverline...but it semms to my that the same could happen in every language...:)
As a long-time student of Russian, I have to agree with the awesomeness of this topic. I always thought the over-/underlines were just used to help new students read cursive. It's cool to learn it's kind of an historic thing. After a certain amount of experience reading Russian script, these words become less troublesome, in general, as they can be determined from the context. Again, though, I've much appreciation for the post. :)
I've only recently started my learning, but yes, the cursive scares me, too!! lol. I figured I will just leave that part be for a while, since I won't be needing that now (if ever), and worry about learning how to write that way later on, after being comfortable (or more comfortable, at least) with the language itself. =P
OMG this is scary! Especially "шиш" which looks like some kind of decorative pattern here. I pity Russian learners :-P
Someone should give you an example of Russian medical handwriting. That's something no normal Russian can read. :)
Oh, this was meant for the author of the picture, not the topicstarter who is obviously a native speaker. :)
