Mistakes in Today's Use of the OCS Script
Fehler im modernen Gebrauch der kirchenslawischen Schrift

With the modern use of the Old Church Slavonic script, invariably some mistakes are to be observed, resulting from improper knowledge of the script.

In the book cover (printed in Sofia in 2001), the grapheme for "f ", representing a Greek theta, is misinterpreted as a variant of "d" -- see the word "Dunav" --, obviously, because it looks similar to a normal "d". Thus, the book is about a river named "Funav", and not "Dunav".

In the "Philospher's Cafe" (a scan from "Partner", a Russian magazine from Germany), the old form of the "tsch" is misinterpreted as being a variant of the "u".
