The proposals were rejected – the intelligentsia declined to spell мышь (mouse) and рожь (wheat) without the ь (soft sign) and write жюри (jury) with an у, цыган (Gypsy) with an и, and заяц (hare) with a е instead of a я. Put to shame, the members of the Orthographic Commission quietly retreated into the тишь (quiet), with a ь, of their academic offices to lick their wounds for nearly 40 years. Now, the topic is relevant once again, but the literati are still resisting the у in парашют (parachute) and брошюра (brochure).
