    Russian words that look like English words!

    OK, here's what I have so far of Russian words (using the English looking alphabet letters only) that are also English words:

    МОРЕ. НОВО. РОЕТ. СОСКУ. HOPE, BOP, HOP

    Can anyone think of any other words???


    Thanks!

    I can't believe that I actually did this:

    Well, using the Internet anagram server, excel and some internet translators (not to mention far too much of my time) I've got this list:

    In English alphabetical order:

    AC, ACE, ACT, BATT, BATTY, BAM, BATE, BEEP, BET, BETA, BOB, BOCK, BOT, CAM, CO, COB, COKE, COM, COP, HAP, HE, HEM, HO, HOB, HOC, HOT, MAKE, POE, POEM, POKE, POKY, POT, TAPE, TETE, TOKE, TOM, TOP, TOPE, TYPE, TYPY.

    Notes:
    1) This only covers word which appear in anagrams of AKOMTBCEPHYXAKOMTBCEPHYX in English (i.e. letters may only be used twice and some words are possibly ommited from consideration)

    2) I didn't include KATE, since it is a proper name in both languages (the dative case in Russian of Катя)

    3) This list considers Е and Ё as the same letter (e.g. Tете is actually Тёте - dative case of Тётя - aunt. There may be other examples in the list)

    Still, I think this is enough to keep you going for the moment!

    Actually, what you do is not words but their forms.

    Один тщательный математик не смог напечатать на машинке выражение а+в=с, потому что у него не было на ней латинского регистра.

    Конечно, не мог! В математических формулах пользуются не прописными буквами.

    I don't think Y = У.
    It's almost like to use 4 instead of Ч, or /\ instead of Л, or >|< instead of Ж.

    No it's not. And look at the small forms: y у they are almost identical. And the handwritten forms are almost the same too.
    That's like saying, м doesn't = m, or т doesn't = t

    Впрочем, это не имеет отношения к делу.
