English Loanwords in Russian.
Benson, Morton
Slavic and East European Journal, v3 (New Series) p248-267 1959
This introductory survey describes the English contribution to the vocabulary of modern Russian. The author presents an analysis of English loanwords based on the etymologies of Vasmer and Lexin, by subject classification (amusements, clothing, economics, food, nautical terminology, and technology). Separate commentary on sporting terms, where English influence has been the strongest, precedes an extensive analysis of phonetic and phonemic patterning in four major types of loanword borrowing.
