Etymology[edit]

From Russian палочка (páločka, little stick), diminutive of палка (pálka, stick).

Noun[edit]

palochka (plural palochkas)

  1. A letter added to the Cyrillic alphabet when used in writing several of the Caucasian languages. It looks exactly like uppercase Roman letter I, but had no lowercase form until recently. In the days of the mechanical typewriter, this letter was the Roman numeral I, which was included on most Cyrillic typewriters for use in typing dates (e.g., 25.XII.1953 г.).
