 Ruthenian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Ruthenian was a historic East Slavic language, spoken in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and after 1569 in the East Slavic territories of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Having evolved from the Old East Slavic language, Ruthenian was the ancestor of modern Belarusian, Ukrainian, and Rusyn.
Both languages were usually called рускій 'Rusian' or словенскій 'Slavonic'; only when a differentiation between the language of Muscovy and the one of Lithuania was needed was the former called московскій 'Moscovian' (and, rarely, the latter литвинскій 'Lithuanian').
