Examples from texts

Their masters would not dare to give such plain orders to Orcs, even if they knew so much themselves; they would not speak openly to them of the Ring: they are not trusty servants.
Не рискнули бы хозяева орков доверить им столь важную тайну, если б даже сами ее проведали. Нельзя с орками в открытую говорить о Кольце: ненадежные они рабы.

It is plain that the process must terminate, for the decreasing sequence a,b,c, ... of natural numbers cannot go on for ever.

Broad shadows move across the plain like clouds across the sky, and in the inconceivable distance, if you look long and intently at it, misty monstrous shapes rise up and huddle one against another...
Широкие тени ходят по равнине, как облака по небу, а в непонятной дали, если долго всматриваться в нее, высятся и громоздятся друг на друга туманные, причудливые образы...

But when the bell sounded the noise ceased, a flight of sparrows rose from the plane-trees, and the breathless students betook themselves to their lesson in plain-chant with folded arms and hanging heads.
Звонил колокол, шум стихал, с платанов поднималась целая туча воробьев. Ученики, еще запыхавшись, отправлялись на урок церковного пения и стояли, скрестив руки и понурив головы.
