The dictation of unity in the new format

10 листопада 2019 року

 On November 8, 2019, on the eve of Ukrainian writing and language, at the initiative of the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Pedagogics V. Shinkaruk and the University administration within the Week of Ukrainian Language (November 08-14, 2019), the Dictation of Unity was held.
All-Ukrainian dictation of national unity is a kind of flash mob, which has become an all-Ukrainian annual tradition designed to unite Ukrainians around their native culture and language.

The tradition of writing at the same time throughout the country began in 1997, when the President of Ukraine signed a decree stating, "To establish in Ukraine the Day of Ukrainian Writing and Language, to be celebrated annually on November 9, the day of commemoration of the Rev. Nestor the Chronicler."
For the first time a radio dictation united the country in 2000 on May 24 to celebrate Cyril and Methodius Day, Slavic enlighteners, creators of the alphabet, who promoted the spread of culture and Christianity in particular. (Up to this day, we still use Cyrillic, which was proposed in the far X century).

This year the dictation was broadcast live on Ukrainian Radio and TV Channel UA: The First. The text was traditionally written by Oleksandr Avramenko, Ukrainian linguist, associate professor at the Borys Hrinchenko Kyiv University, a television and radio host, author of manuals on the Ukrainian language and literature for preparing for the Independent external evaluation (IEE).
Do you know the difference between this year's dictation and the previous ones?
First, it was possible to check your dictation 15 minutes after the broadcast ended on the Ukrainian Radio website. And we didn't slow down, we made it!
Secondly, the text was drafted taking into account the new Ukrainian spelling, approved by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on May 22, 2019.
Students of many faculties, their tutors, instructors, department heads, representatives of the dean's offices, university administration - all those who wanted to test their grammar knowledge, who felt their involvement in defending their native words - the kindly smiling, playful, were involved in writing the dictation. strict and unmanageable

We wonder if our students and our instructors have coped with the new requirements, have they studied the rules and flipped through the dictionaries, or are they aware of the innovations?
We suggest you to read the text of the dictation:
From birch - to "numbers"
The gray-headed monk Nestor, leaning over the table, writes the story of his people. This episode, marred in marble, is an eloquent testimony that people have long sought to retain information for their descendants.
Once upon a time in history, our ancestors wrote on stone, clay, birch bark, then on paper, and later the world was conquered by machine carriers: Edison cylinders, turntables, magnetic tapes and disks. By the way, Vyacheslav Petrov, a graduate student at the Kiev Institute of Cybernetics, developed the prototype of the modern disk more than half a century ago.
Today is the era of digital technologies that help you send instant messages thousands of miles away, and see and communicate with your family live through your webcam. In fact, this invention enables Ukrainian Radio to transmit a signal to different corners of the planet, by surrounding us with a dictation on the Day of Ukrainian Writing and Language.
Although digitization makes communication easier for us, the living word has its magic power. In fact, pre-Christian songs "On John, on Kupala", "Oy spring, spring, red day" and thousands of others came to us not in clay, elm or "figure", but through the living word that passed our ancestors from word of mouth, bringing us into the Ukrainian family.
Winners, respond!
