    original Russian party

    1-All of these parties were modeled upon the original Russian party.
    2-All of these parties were modeled upon the original, Russian party.
    3-All of these parties were modeled upon the original, Russian, party.
    4-All of these parties were modeled upon the original (Russian) party.

    Which of these sentences should be used if there was only one Russian party?

    I think "1" is the one which would be commonly used, but it might give the impression that there was more than one Russian party, one of them being the original one.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: original Russian party

    Ah! A political party of course! The communist parties around the world were fashioned according to the model set by the original Russsian party. I am sorry 5jj. I thought the meaning would be clear. My apologies.

    In that case, #3 is the best, in my opinion; #4 is fine. You'll hear and see #1, though it has the potential to give the impression that you suggest. #2 does not work.
