From the book: Testament to Ruthenian: A Linguistic Analysis of the Smotryc'kyj Variant, by Stefan M. Pugh; 1996 (unnumbered page facing page 1).

Note: As happens all too often, the term "Grand Duchy of Litva, Rus', and Samogitia" has been inaccurately abbreviated on the map as the "Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL)." Refer to Belarus: At a Crossroads in History, Jan Zaprudnik (1993) for further discussion of the topic, "Grand Duchy of Litva, Rus', and Samogithia" and its being mis-quoted (often intentionally).
