Foreign Influences in the Russian Language. [Ohio University] Occasional Papers in Language, Literature and Linguistics, Series B, Number 1.
Kwiatkowski, Eugenia Evelyn
Foreign influences in the Russian language leading to linguistic change through loanword borrowing, loan translation, and loan shifts are explored in this article. Related concepts of the processes described are often accompanied by comparative word lists. Comment on the evolution of the Russian language begins with the Proto-Slavic period and is developed through the era of Stalin. Reasons for the exceptional amount of language borrowing under the rules of Peter and Nicholas are noted. A bibliography is included. (RL)
