He wrote major works on the Japanese, Chinese, Uzbek, and Dungan languages and on theoretical linguistics and poetics. He participated in the development of writing systems for the peoples of the Soviet Union and also designed a cyrillization system for Japanese language, which was officially accepted in the Soviet Union and is still the standard in modern Russia. He also translated the Kyrgyz national Epic of Manas into Russian. Polivanov is credited as the scholar who initiated the comparative study of Japanese pitch accent across dialects. During the Russian revolution of 1917 and the civil war, Polivanov was active first in the Socialist Revolutionary Party and later in the Bolshevik Party. He worked in the Oriental section of People''s Commissariat for Foreign Affairs in 1917-1718 and in the Komintern in 1921.
