The Russian Language Today
Almost every aspect of the Russian language has been affected since Glasnost, from grammatical features to vocabulary. This book is the first major analysis in English of these dramatic changes and provides the most up-to-date guide to the contemporary Russian language.
The authors focus on radical changes in Russian vocabulary. The language has become inundated by new words, mainly from American English, especially in the field of business and economics but also in technology, the mass media, fashion, sport and life-style. Supported throughout by extracts from contemporary press and literary sources, this is a comprehensive overview of present-day Russian and an essential text for all students of the Russian language.
Dictionary: 10,000 Russian Words in Frequency Order
The huge and amorphous nature of the Russian vocabulary has made the acquisition of new words difficult for the beginner. Russian Vocabulary-Building Dictionary meets this challenge by presenting a comprehensive guide to 10,000 Russian words. Arranged in order of frequency, the dictionary takes the student from the beginner’s level through that of the postgraduate.
Indexed alphabetically and containing instructions on syntax and grammar, the Dictionary includes the core vocabulary of the most important Russian words. The result of five years of research and testing by the author to determine the most successful techniques for learning Russian, a familiarity with all or most of its contents will greatly assist the learner in acquiring a practical mastery of the language.
