Sounds are centers

There are 32 symbols used in Cyrillic, the alphabet which the greek-speaking Roman empire, also known as byzantium, gave to Russia. But these symbols represent just a kind of average or approximation of certain noises which Russians make. They are not discrete atoms, but rather centers of sound: they are fields which have no definite boundary.

But, anyway, I must use these symbols before going any further. The thorny problem of HTML & Cyrillic comes next.
