A class of transformations of $R_q$-matrices is introduced such that the $q\to 1$ limit gives explicit nonstandard $R_{h}$-matrices. The transformation matrix is singular itself at $q\to 1$ limit. For the transformed matrix, the singularities, however, cancel yielding a well-defined construction. Our method can be implemented systematically for R-matrices of all dimensions and not only for $sl(2)$ but also for algebras of higher dimensions. Explicit constructions are presented starting with ${\cal U}_q(sl(2))$ and ${\cal U}_q(sl(3))$, while choosing $R_q$ for (fund. rep.)$\otimes$(arbitrary irrep.). The treatment for the general case and various perspectives are indicated. Our method yields nonstandard deformations along with a nonlinear map of the $h$-Borel subalgebra on the corresponding classical Borel subalgebra. For ${\cal U}_h(sl(2))$ this map is extended to the whole algebra and compared with another one proposed by us previously.
