In Soviet or Russian contexts Mir
is a Russian homonym – a word with multiple meanings but the same spelling. Before the Russian spelling reform of 1918, the two homonyms for mir
were spelled differently and used different letters in place of the [i] vowel (миръ vs мiръ). In traditional Russian (village) culture the term applied to a whole (local) community, e.g., when villagers united their efforts for a common task, such as building a church building or clearing a field.
