"a Russian word for a fish called the Caspian roach"
Could be, but proving it .... Would use to show approximate Russian pronunciation count as usage or mention? I think mention. DCDuring TALK 18:04, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
- I think use to show approximate Russian pronunciation would probably be mention of the Russian word, though I'd have to see an example of what you mean. Regardless, the word does see plenty of use in English contexts. I'll see about adding some cites. —RuakhTALK 19:16, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
- Cited. The definition could use work, though. Writers do typically treat it as a loanword, but nowise does vobla mean "a Russian word […] ". —RuakhTALK 19:36, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
- Update: Mglovesfun (talk • contribs) has fixed the definition. —RuakhTALK 23:21, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
