"a Russian word for a fish called the Caspian roach"
Could be, but proving it .... Would use to show approximate Russian pronunciation count as usage or mention? I think mention. DCDuringTALK 18:04, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
I think use to show approximate Russian pronunciation would probably be mention of the Russian word, though I'd have to see an example of what you mean. Regardless, the word does see plenty of use in English contexts. I'll see about adding some cites. —RuakhTALK 19:16, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
