Bulgarian

Letter

Ь, ь (italics: Ь, ь)

  1. The twenty-eighth letter of the Bulgarian Cyrillic alphabet is named ер малък (er malək, or "little er"). It is only ever used in front of the letter о (in шофьор, for example), and never at the beginning of a word. It modifies the "o" sound to "yo." If a "yo" sound is needed at the beginning of a word, the letters И or Й will be used instead. It is preceded in alphabetic order by Ъ and followed by Ю.

Ь, ь (italics: Ь, ь)

  1. The thirtieth letter of the Russian Cyrillic alphabet. It is named мягкий знак (mjákhkij znak, or "soft sign") and it has no sound of its own, but modifies that of the preceding consonant, causing it to be pronounced soft (i.e., palatalized). In the alphabet, it is preceded by Ы and followed by Э.
