That's why so many Russians underline ш (and draw a short line on top of т) when writing in cursive:

Try to write "лишишь" in cursive and you'll see that "дышишь" is OK:)

My mother told me they had a student named "Шимшилашвилли".

Try writing that in cursive and reading back!

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...:)

Between the lines

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. :)
