I believe it's "vepper", although it could possibly be "vyepper". There are two e's in Russian: e (ye) and э (eh), which looks confusingly like з (zeh). Where are the Russian speakers at?

Serbian linguist buddy says susually you'll see it with a Y in english to convey the (yee sounding E), so it's probably "vepper". He hadn't heard of he word though, apparently the Serbian/Croatian has a different word for it.

At DLI I was told that this E "э" was only used in words of foreign origin.

And I had to cut and paste that, cuz I don't know how to make it come up.

I'll be heading back to Monterey early Feb for a little R&R, plus the wife wants to work the AT&T ProAm.

I've always been curious as to how many of the folks on here are DLI grads/lings...

Does it really matter that much? It's vepper like pepper but with a V. All you had to do is call Robinson and ask them.
