Буква Э в древнерусских певческих текстах и в списках библейской книги Исход.

Вопросы языкознания. 2013. № 6. С. 79-114.

In Old Russian hymns one sporadically observes the letter Э, incorporated in the text of a hymn. The
author argues that this letter refl ects some Hebrew phrases referring to the name of God: he establishes
connections between the hymnographic Э and some specifi c hebraisms in the Russian Old Testament
manuscripts. The article deals both with the origin of the letter Э and its subsequent evolution.
