In the cyrillic alphabet, there are three digraphs utilizing the softening sign, and one character that could be considered a digraph in the latin alphabet.

Ть → Þ þ

Дь → Ð ð

Ўь → Ẃ ẃ

And in the cyrillic alphabet, another character exists, which is put together by two consonants in the latin alphabet. Although not technically crucial, whenever these consonants are near each other, they change to this form.

Šč → Щ щ


The hardening signs, Ъ ъ, do the opposite thing than grave accents in the latin alphabet. In the cyrillic alphabet, two vowels together form a diphthong.

  • Aì → Аы
  • Aù → Ау
  • Eà → Эа
  • Iè → Ыэ
  • Iù = Ыу
  • Oì → Оы
  • Où → Оу
  • Öì → Öы
  • Uì → Уы

To have then separately pronounced, the hardening sign (Ъ ъ) is inserted. Note, when using the hardening sign, ы becomes и to avoid confusing people by having ъ and ы together.

  • Ai → Аъи
  • Au → Аъу
  • Ea → Эъа
  • Ie → Ыъэ
  • Iu → Ыъу
  • Oi → Оъи
  • Ou → Оъу
  • Öi → Öъи
  • Ui → Уъи


Apart from being a sort of vowel divider, the hardening sign also functions as the optional e, ě, when placed in between two consonants.


While in the latin alphabet, acute accents were used to indicate stress, in the cyrillic alphabet, completely different vowel forms are used to indicate stress. Most of the different vowel forms are simple iotated forms of the vowels which are used in other alphabets.

Á → Я

É → Е

Í → Ĭ

Ó → Ё

Ő → Ө

Ú → Ю

Ű → Ŭ

Ý → Ї

Therefore, when a vowel in the latin alphabet requires an accent, in the cyrillic alphabet it simply changes to the vowels shown above.


Below are phrases using both orthographies for comparison.
