After publishing the biligual Serbian-Ruthenian Dictionary (Српско-русински речник / Сербско-руски словнїк), in two volumes (Department of the Ruthenian Studies, 1995; Institute for Textbooks, Department of the Ruthenian Studies, 1997), the Julijan RamaĦ`s team started a new project – Ruthenian-Serbian Dictionary (Русинскo-српски речник / Руско-сербски словнїк). In about ten years the team that consisted of four members succeeded in accomplishing the project sponsored by the Ministry of Science. The result is a voluminous bilingual dictionary published under the same title by the Institute for Culture of the Vojvodinian Ruthenians and the Department of the Ruthenian Studies in 2010. The characteristics of the Ruthenian-Serbian Dictionary are: 1. stating the precise meaning of Ruthenian words followed by explicite explanations in Serbian; 2. grammatical remarks, including a detailed elaboration of undeclined words; 3. the presence of abbreviations pointing to stylistic use, the use for special purposes, and the frequency of Ruthenian words; 4. tolerance in using synonyms or variants (especially those from Kucura); 5. the presence of rich Ruthenian phraseology, unregistered so far; 6. the endevour to present as many Serbian equivalents as possible. The Ruthenian philology has by all means been placed on a higher level among Slavic philologies.
