Examples from texts

But at that very instant there was a sort of sudden rush and whizz, and a very big, wide cart, harnessed with three lean horses, cut sharply at a rush up to us, galloped in front, and at once fell into a walking pace, blocking up the road.
Но в это самое мгновенье что-то вдруг словно сорвалось, рявкнуло, ухнуло – и большущая развалистая телега, запряженная тройкой поджарых коней, круто, вихрем обогнула нас, заскакала вперед и тотчас пошла шагом, загораживая дорогу.
