Pardon me for being a pain, but can someone please help me with a word definition? The word is the Russian "nezrachniy" in transliterated form, and I heard it being used to describe a type of bird. Could it be used also to describe people? Unfortunately, it is not to be found in my dictionary, and I don't have Cyrillic text on my computer, so I can't even type it into Babelfish to find its meaning. Many thanks in advance!

If you drop a V in there (nevzrachniy) it means ordinary-looking or unattractive in appearance.

Незрячим nezryachim lit. "non-seeing" means "blind". Is that the right word?

I believe there must be a "v" in there as Fr. Ambrose says. I only heard the word on a movie and didn't see it actually spelled out in Russian script. Thanks!
