Examples from texts

— Это он, сударыня, тот самый, с короткими ногами… они были на редкость коротки для кожаных штанишек, — сказал мистер Тудль мечтательным голосом, — когда мистер Домби сделал из него Милосердного Точильщика.
'This here, Ma'am,' said Toodle, 'is him with the short legs — and they was,' said Mr Toodle, with a touch of poetry in his tone, 'unusual short for leathers — as Mr Dombey made a Grinder on.'
